You've got to be kidding...I was about to purchase one of these for daylight fill flash in auto sensor mode! I have had a 285HV for years, but want a second unit that also has swivel ability and more power ratio settings and auto f/stops. The 385HV looks perfect on paper. And now you tell me that it won't even fire in daylight?! And you've gone through two of them, and neither one works in daylight?! If all of them behave like this, this is one of the worst design defects I've ever heard of!
If there really is such a design defect on all of them, I'll start looking for a used Sunpak 120J instead!
Anyone else used this flash unit?
