    Hi Rick,

    Best bet is to buy the Minolta gun designed for it.

    Jessops do make their own adapter for Minolta slr's to standard shoe but is
    not advised for digital cameras or the recent slr's like the Dynax 4/5.

    The biggest reason is that older flashguns can prodice a lot of power and if
    there is too much power it could damage the camera.

    The only independent makes that may be suitable, though double check first,
    are from Sigma, Cobra and Mecablitz/Metz.

    If you think you may change camera in the future the Metz series may be
    worthwhile considering as you may only have to purchase a new dedicated
    module rather than the whole flashgun.

    Cheers,
    Stephen

    Cheers, I will have a look around, I don't really want to shell out on a gun
    for a camera thats only going to be in use for the next year or so. I have
    only recently moved from my trusty SLR to a digi and am left with lots of
    perfectly good legacy gear :/

    Hi Rick,

    Another option to try is using a slave unit with your old flashguns.

    I have a Sony (S85) and it works with a couple of studio lights that have
    built-in slaves.

    Cheers,
    Stephen
