Sunpak 433AF With Nikon N65/Coolpix 5700

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Larry R Harrison Jr, Jul 15, 2004.

  1. I will be using a Sunpak 433AF flash with a Nikon N65--and also possibly a
    Nikon Coolpix 5700.

    My brother-in-law will be getting married in a couple of months, that is
    what this is for.

    In fact, what I'm bidding on eBay actually are TWO Sunpak 433AFs with
    Lumiquest Softboxes. Naturally they're Nikon-mount.

    I am aware that the N65 offers (non-3D) Matrix TTL flash and that these
    units probably will be conventional TTL flash.

    My questions are:

    (1) The flash has a variable power ratio. Does this NOT work in regular TTL
    mode? Does it just work in full-blast manual mode, the "classic" auto modes,
    or what?

    (2) If they do not, is there a way to regulate the flash's power with the
    N65? I realize the N80 (a camera I love) does have flash exposure
    compensation, so does my Coolpix 5700. Is there a way to make the N65 do it
    given its lack of flash compensation?

    (3) I assume the flashes are powered on AA batteries. I have some I-C3 2000
    mAH batteries. Would that speed up recycling time? If not, what methods can
    speed up recycling time?

    (4) Does this flash have any slave features?
