Menik sw-400 flash how to trigger with Sony Alpha
Oct 26, 2013

Hi,

anyone using the menik sw-400 with a sony alpha dslr and sucessfully get correct exposure?

Im using an A65 and the sony f20am flash as the trigger. I have tried all the different camera flash

modes. The sw-400 has 3 different photo cell modes, tried them all, some do cause the sw-400

to fire off the flash but the exposure is always too dark.  Im doing 3/4 power and it looks like a shutter sync problem.

if I go the wireless route, I would need a bunch more receivers. Hoping to avoid if I can.

thanks for any other suggestions.  I also have 2 metz strobes for sony so eventually want to use them

all at the same time.

thanks!
