Canon Digital Rebel-sync question

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Robert John Guttke, May 2, 2004.

  1. Apparently there is no sync cord connection for this camera, but I was told
    an attachment can be found for the hot shoe portion of the camera that
    allows this to happen.

    Does anyone know more about this? I assume based on the studio sample tests
    that I have seen that the camera was indeed used with strobes.

    Any suggestions about this must needed accessory?

    There are hotshoe to PC adapters with a safe synch circuit (high voltage
    isolator) made by Nikon, Canon and Wein that will allow a safe trigger
    voltage, Pentax has this circuit built into their *istD. Studio strobes
    often have a high trigger voltage that "could" harm the camera circuitry, so
    it's IMHO better to be safe than sorry if you cook your camera.

  3. I have heard of a device made by "Wein"... I was just wondering if anyone
    with a Rebel has shot with such a device... I'm hoping the Rebel will work
    just as fine in a studio situation with strobes as it will outdoors.

    It's called a Safe Sync.

    The Rebel will work fine with studio strobes, no need to fret.

  5. Lisa!

    THANK YOU. Very, very much. I just needed that assurance before investing.

  6. Thank you for this infomation as well. SOme time ago a friend used his
    digital camera with my strobes and fro some arcane reason the fuse in the
    power pack blew. Nothing was hurt, I reset thefuse.... but could not figure
    out why this happened.

    But it is apparent that when I buy my Canon Rebel I will get the more
    expensive save sync with a surge protection.
