When using the slave flash, I have found that leaving the V-530's ISO in the Auto position pretty well takes care of things, and overexposure is not a problem, as long you keep your flash range at 15 to 25 feet.

I recentlypurchased a Bower SFDSthat is a bit more costly than the Sunpak DS-20, but it has more output and the photocell that fires the slave is about 25% more sensitive when triggering, allowing you to use the Bower off of the camera, which can be more useful in some situations.

Hello MT

What is that wire coming out of the side of your camera (a little above the "KODAK")and curving down under the bracket?

Thanks MT !

I mentiioned on another thread that I think the DX7440 4MP 4X optical zoom is a great compact camera (fits in all my coat/jacket pockts and under my coat/jacket) and it has a nice optical view finder. Too compact can also mean to vulnerable. The DX7440 has been around for a while so the price should be considerably reduced where available.

funny you mentioned that Bill
I am considering selling my DX7440 in exchange for buying the V550.
abad move???

I love the cam, just want to downsize alittle
it appears with the smaller size comes compromise
but with the switch it doesnt look like i will lose too much..

T.Geek

A compact camera has just as many compromises in over all quality just like compact cars:!:

Think about what you want and what you need :!:

Vivitar also sells a DF200 slave flash that will reach on out. I've used one quite extensively and found no problems with it. I recently gave it to my daughter with a folding flash bracket to use on her DX7440! Works great to get those auditorium recital shots of the Grand daughters and the gym shots of my grandsons!
