Konica Minolta 3600HS(D) Flashes
Submitted by freddy chan a Intermediate from Sydney, Australia
Date Reviewed: July 18, 2002
Strengths: New ADI system and Pre-Flash monitoring system, but don't expect it to perform like the Nikon System.
Remote TTL flash might be useful to others but you have to turn off your Pre-Flash/ADI system which makt it useless in that new system.
Weaknesses: Too $$$, should remove the useless TTL remote system (I don't see the point to keep this as it will not work with the new ADI/Pre-Flash system).
Complicated set up on all custom setting.
Weak in power, GN 22 at 28mm (ISO100)
As mentioned, TTL mote will not work on my Dimage 7.
The Nikon 3D Matrix System still far ahead from Minolta.
Dark corner at 28 mm (Dimage 7)
I am still waiting for the METZ adapter to be available before I am moving back to Metz. (The new ADI system makes it incompatable with the old adepter).
I am thinking of selling it when the new Metz adapter coming out.
I am using it on my Dimage7. High speed Sync on Dimage 7 at all shutter speed (Up to 1/2000s). Advance Distance (ADI) and Monitoring Pre-Flash on the newer models (SLR), which is similiar to the Nikon 3D matrix System. Remode TTL available on some SLR such as Dynax 7.
Flash made in INDONESIA!!!
