D70 + Old Flash

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Bernard P Rother, Dec 30, 2004.

  1. Does anyone know if it's possible to get a third party flash to work
    with the D70 ? The flash is a Kalimar AFF with 4 pins at the base and 1
    contact on the side ( in the rail ? ) bought originally for a Nikon EM.
    I've tried about everything but the shutter release remains locked. The
    lens is a non CPU auto focus Cosina 19-35mm.

  3. No need to feel sorry .... really ;-) I'm over the moon with the quality
    of the D70 and my 2 AF zoom lenses. My hobby doesn't require anything
    further, other than a polariser and a spare battery which are on order.
    I'm busy packing up my old Nikon EM and accessories, including the
    flash, and just wondered if that should be packed as well or maybe I was
    doing something wrong in trying to get it to work with the D70.

    I've just finished printing a couple of photos taken with the D70 on the
    Canon S9000 printer and was blown away by the quality ... so much so
    that I've bought another few packets of paper and another set of 6 ink
    cartridges. ( That's the expensive bit )

    Thanks anyway for your sentiments.

    Possibly put the D70 in 100% manual.???

  5. Oops ... sorry, the lenses are CPU.

    You probably have to switch your flash to full manual mode if its possible.
    And the same might have to be done on your D70 flash set to manual in the
    custum menu on the D70.
