Hi all,

Am new here and would like to clear up something. I have an old (1994) Minolta Dynax 7xi (which has served me well) and the Program 3500xi flash unit. Am about to get the Dimage A2 and was wondering if this flash unit will work with the new camera. Thanks in advance.

Flash metering works only with the latest models, 5600HS(D), 3600HS(D) and 2500.

You can (most likely) use the 3500 with an A2, but it will always fire at full power and you'll have to use the camera in manual mode and stop down the lens in order to avoid overexposure.

Hello MarkoB,

Thanks for the reply. Guess I will have to bring my flash unit to the store and try it out. Might have to buy a new flash unit when the need arrises.
