Hi . I got a minolta 5600 hs d and i got a few questions . is that D coming from something? . and if that flash mount breaks cuz is plastic and could happens is it replaceble? and if yes where could i find a spare ? mine is a little bit loose or are all like that? anyone broke that patin from the blitz?
Thnx again .
The D was added for "Digital" I guess, to distinguish it from the older which are not fully compatible.
I have had two for many years, and they are quite solid. It should not break, unless you drop camera + flash.
A bit loose is no problem at all. Unlike most other types it is locked anyway.
