Sunpak Dmacro

Check availablity: eBay.

This D-model ring flash can be fitted with a number of interface modules (shoe adapters) to make it compatible with the legacy TTL flash control systems on many different film SLRs. However, to use it on a digital camera, you need the STD-1D (standard shoe) interface module. With this module, ut will work in non-TTL auto and manual mode on a DSLR.

The ring flash head is attached to the end of the lens. It can be attached to a lens having up to 77 mm diameter. The hot-foot is attached to the hot-shoe. Came with adapter rings for 62 mm and 67 mm filter threads. Other sizes optional.

Brand profile

Key info

Established: 1963
HQ: Saitama, Japan
Web: Global, man

Sunpak's main business is the planning, development, production and sale of aftermarket electronic flash units. The company also markets general underwater imaging equipment.

Some Sunpak flash units have an auto power save function that may put the unit to sleep after about some time of inactivity (from 5 to 15 minutes, depending on model). When using your flash as a wireless slave, the power save mode may stop the flash from responding after a while. If the manual does not tell you how to disable automatic power save, it may work to hold down the mode and select (SEL) buttons as you power it on, or to hold down the zoom button as you power it on.
