Canon 420EX flash with Sony DSC F717 camera

Discussion in 'Sony' started by Sriram Parameswar, Oct 16, 2003.

  1. Hi All,

    I own a Canon SLR and a Sony Digital DSC F717 camera. Would like to know if
    any body has attempted to use a Canon 420EX flash with a Sony digital camera
    and whether there are any likely problems.

    I am looking to buy a flash and would like to own just one and use it

    The 420EX is meant for full auto E-TTL use only on Canon cameras. It has no
    manual mode, so it's not going to work properly even if it does fire. You
    need a flash with full manual or one with an independent auto mode.
