    Hi folks,

    Looking for a new Flash for my Dynax 7xi. No idea where my manual is as I've had the camera ever since it came out!

    1992 wasn't it?? (or somewhere around there)

    Need to know what's available for it and I can't find a listing anywhere on the web <img src="/img/wwwthreads/frown.gif">.

    Also looking for remote flash unit as well.

    Many thanks for your time,

    fen.

    Fen,

    First 7xi manual you can download one from here http://www.geocities.com/eskoufos/fmm.html (3 part .pdf file)
    Flash - according to my Minolta system accessories booklet the following flashes will work on your 7xi:- 5600 HSD, 3600 HSD, 5400 HS, 5400 xi, 3500 xi, 2000 xi, 5200 i and 3200 i, will work, however some of the functionality of newer flashes will not be available on the 7xi.

    The Minolta wireless remote is not listed as working with the 7xi, but does with the 9xi and subsequent dynax cameras, however you need to use xi or better flash guns with the remote. It may be worthwhile fen, to email Minolta direct and check with them, try photohelp@Minolta.co.uk I have always found them to be very helpful and quick to respond.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Reply From Minolta

    Which therefore by deduction means that a secondhand 3500xi, 5400xi or 5400HS will also be compatible with the 7xi and the Wireless remote, looks like time to check out the usual suspects, Ffordes, MXV, e-bay etc.
