Minolta 4000 AF

Check availablity: eBay.

This flash was designed for the Minolta Maxxum 7000 (which still featured an ISO hot-shoe). It was a dedicated OTF TTL flash. On a digital camera it is for all intents and purposes a generic flash. I.e. the TTL mode won't work, but it will work fine in manual mode on any digital camera with an ISO hot-shoe.

The detachable wide adapter takes coverage to 24 mm (FX).
