    Well Christmas came and went and you sort of missed your opportunity to use the SUNPAK 611 to take a picture of Santa coming down the chimney. But that's ok...there's still plenty of things to take pictures of, aren't there? Of course. New Year's Eve is upon us, after all. Let's make it easy for you to have this professional flash unit in your hands. $45 total...domestic shipping included in that price or a reduction in international shipping by $6.

    I was just checking on the flash trigger voltage at:

    http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html

    It seems that the older versions were 190v and newer examples had been throttled back to 4v. This is also true of old Vivitar 283's that were produced over a long period of time and requirements. It could be that this one is just fine for all duties but thought that if you're considering this aspect, the information may be helpful.

    A couple of friends owned these over the years and they swear by them as they perform consistently and have been rock-solid reliable. They also have been using them with new-wave film and digital slr's, too.

    Thanks Craig,
    I got tired of wondering so I pulled out the voltmeter and tested it. Trigger voltage = 189.8 and it works like a champ using just C cells. So if you're planning on using it on a digital device, you will need a peanut slave or a "safe hotshoe" adapter similar to the one marketed by Wein and others. Personally given the cost of the Wein device, I'd go with a peanut slave.
