Minolta Dimage 7 flash
Is there a flash that will work with the Dimage 7
besides a Minolta flash? I was looing at a
Vivitar 728 and 730.

Thanks, Doug

The only two Minolta flashes that will work with the D7 and D7i are the 5600HS(D) and the 3600HS(D) in fully automatic mode (ie TTL and ADI). All others including Minolta's own former dedicated flash will not work in the automatic mode.

The problem here is the quick preflash burst that the newer Minolta (or Nikon) use to adjust the camera white balance, and older flashes do not support this. In the manual mode all other flashes will work just fine including the Vivitar. Beside the 5600HS(D) and the 3600HS(D) also work wirelessly with the new D7i through the built-in flash !

I own a 3600 HS, and works very well. you can also use the wireless feature.
