External flash won't fire on DRebel

Discussion in '35mm Cameras' started by George Johnston, Feb 28, 2004.

  1. My Sunpak PZ4000AF won't fire on my Canon DRebel. It works fine with my EOS
    Elan 7E. Can anyone help?

    Thanks

    Does the flash do E-TTL metering? Because that's all the DRebel will
    use.
    The Elan can use A-TTL because it has film for the relected light to be
    measured during the exposure. For obvious reasons, A-TTL won't work with
    the DRebel.

    Can you switch the flash to manual? It ought to work then, albeit with
    the camera also in manual.

    My A-TTL Canon 300TL will not fire on my E-TTL 10D. Wrong technology.
