F58 + 5400HS question
Jun 11, 2010

OK, I have searched the forum for past posts on this topic - without much luck. Apologies if this has been asked and answered before. Mixing and matching old Minolta and newer Sony flashes seem to be a bit of a black art!

I just bought a F58 (wow, what a great flash!) for my a700 and I happen to have my old 5400HS lying unused. Can the F58 trigger the 5400HS when the F58 is operating as a wireless controller?

If yes, pointers to instructions would be most appreciated. I have had no luck after mucking about for a couple of hours.

If I can trigger the 5400HS, then it may be just enough motivation to NOT advertise it on craigslist!

Thank you for letting me tap the collective knowledge of this group.
