    Sunpak 622 Question

    I have two Sunpak heads, one ring flash p/n 651-063 and one standard head p/n 651-060.

    I really have no idea what I want to do with these. I would like to use them if I had the rest of the parts if for nothing else than just to play.

    I think I just need a cable from the hot shoe or sync port and a power unit of some kind. Is this correct? Will this work with either a Canon 1N or a Mamiya 645AF? I would really like to use the ring flash on the 645.

    This is a handle mount flash with interchangeable heads, you have 2 heads do you have the handle and battery holder/back?

    All I have is the heads mentioned, new in box. I'm downloading the manual now, thanks!

    Sounds like I need a handle, battery pack and possibly a sync cord then? I suppose the manual will tell me.

    Yep you will need the handle and a power source. There are dedicated modules for different cameras and as well as cables. Plus you can PC cable. The manual should give you all the info needed. There used to be a system chart showing the options and available heads, I think there is 7 or 9 heads for this system. Good luck....

    You can still buy the flash unit at BHPhoto or Adorama.

    I'm on the fence right now as to what to do. I have a pile of things now for this system but still lack the main parts. I could just sell them and buy a ABR800 or buy the rest of the parts from B&H.

    It's a great unit. I like to use a bare tube, and that's one of the options available with it. I don't have the real bare one, but I do have the tube with the white plastic covering that gives 360° illumination. That might be a bit better for most uses, anyway, and as I recall the price on it is (or was) better. My main use for it was to do informal portraits in work environments, generally in smallish, light colored interiors. By adjusting distance from the subject and compensating by changing the focal length - assuming the perspective works - you can adjust the mix of direct and ambient light. It gives a wonderful softness with a crisp element contained within it. The farther away you get, the ambient element becomes more dominant. Most of the time, in offices, I liked it at around 5.6 - 8 feet. At 4 feet, it started to look a bit too much like on camera flash, and at 11 feet it began to get a bit bland.

    It even has an infrared head available, just in case you want to photograph the folks in the front row in a movie theater.

    Since I'm no longer shooting commercially or editorially, I don't get to use it much these days.
