    Re: DSC-V1 and minolta 2800 AF flash ? - test results !!!!

    Minolta 2800 flash uses a very low trigger voltage < 2V according to the
    measurements made so I tried it several times in the hot shoe and contrary
    to S/S it works very well as a powerful manual flash. I was able to light up
    at least 25 feet in total darkness using ISO 100 at F3.5 at 1/80 sec. Even
    my 4000 AF should work but it is bigger than the camera. So it is nice to
    know I can still use these fairly pricy flashes with the DSC-V1
    2800AF Yes 1.74V, per Manuel V. Galang
    1.65V from Jeroen Haringman
