Old fashioned Autoflash
May 15, 2013

How many long experienced photogs here prefer the Old fashioned Auto Thyrister type flash control. I had at one time two or three of those flashes. I practiced with each of them until I knew what to set the flash at for given distances. It was more reliable, for me, than my Canon ETTL flashes. I also managed to do well with daylight fill flash. I wish someone would make a dependable, physically smaller, flash similar to the Vivitar 285, 283, or the Sunpak 383 Super. I could then be a happy camper.
