Dynax 5 & Centon FH95 flash

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by Jerry Quayle via PhotoKB.com, Apr 6, 2005.

  1. Hi, I am a new poster.

    I don't mean to but in but I have a question that you guys may have the
    answer to.

    I have a Dynax 5 (which is excellent value for money and I have been
    extremely happy with) but I want to take betetr flash photography, seeing
    the price of dedicated Dynax system flashes from Minolta I too the plunge
    and bought a Centon FH95 becuase it was going cheap. Having asked the
    question of the seller - vis a vie full sync with the Dynax5 and getting an
    oh yes. I have got the flash, it works or seams to work OK, but being new
    to these very sophisticated gadgets I was wondering if I had done the right
    thing.

    Any comments

    Do you have a link to a product description or online manual? That
    would help. I've never even heard of Centon.

    If it has four pins to connect to the camera, then it likely does a
    subset (or even the full set) of the integrated functions. The most
    basic being TTL flash.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I have a manual (a few sheets folded), the brand I believe was/is an own
    brand of Jessops, but that is only a theory.There appears to be no website
    for Centon.

    The unit has an ancillary mountable arm, the unit itself is shown here (if
    the link works)
    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?
    ViewItem&item=7503532951&ssPageName=ADME:B:EOAB:UK:6

    It has 4 pins, located at the bottom of one half which locates into the
    other half of the unit and claims TTL metering but I am always sceptical
    about claims if not from the manufacturer. First time for me with
    complicated kit.

    Cheers

    From what is written there, it should function for at least TTL
    exposure, which is a good start.
