    Need help with Flashgun

    Greetings,

    I purchased a used Nissin 3200GT flashgun however does not have an instruction manual.

    Can someone assist me with how to dial in the various settings on the flash unit & slider buttons, being used on a film EOS3000 camera mostly using Av mode.

    If someone knows of a link to downlaod the manual that would be great.

    Regards,
    John

    Hi John,

    I haven't used this flash before but if you can provide detail picture on the panels of the flash, I may be able to tell you how to set it.

    Regards,
    Orion

    It seems your flash has 3 sets of automatic settings and 3 sets of manual output. At the back, put the switch to upper position is manual output, lower position is automatic. Different color means different automatic settings, which can cover different range. The range can be found on the other pic. If you set the ISO to 100 and without the diffuser (the setting on yr photo), then the range of red is 1.5-12m, green is 1-6m, yellow is 1-3m. The aperture setting should be, red:f2.8, green:f5.6 & yellow:f11. If you use diffuser, set the ISO number to W, then read the aperture & the range from the above. Cheers...!

    Thank you very much for your help.

    I think too that the centre dial looks like it needs to be rotated to match the range required i.e. if wanting range 1-6m then slide switch to green which is half circle on centre dial, is that correct?

    There are also 3 dots on the dial, one each on the y/g/r ranges?

    Regards,
    John

    I guess it may be better to give you a brief description about how to operate automatic flash. You flash offers you 3 different range settings of aperature. The reason of this is you can have 3 different aperature values to choose from when you use it. It depends on the range as well. For example, if you want maximum range with ISO100, you need to set the flash to f2.8, with the auto setting to red. If you are actually closer to the subject and would like to use a smaller aperature, you can use green zone, and use f5.6. Yellow is same except you can use a even smaller aperature, f11 and the range is shorter.

    I don't know what those 3 white dots are, but I guess they may be related to manual mode. For manual mode, switch to white at the back and there are 3 positions to choose for different power output. Full white circle is max, half means half power, one quarter means one quarter of the max power. Let's focus on max power first. On the side panel, turn in inner dial to show the full white circle. You need to also set the ISO and S/W depends what you are using. Then you can read the distance and the aperature that you should use on the panel. Further the distance, larger the aperature you need to use.

    Half power and quarter power are same, except you need to turn the dial to the corresponding setting and read it from the scale. With lower power output, you need a larger aperture, it should be shown on the side panel.

    Hope this can help a bit. It's pretty hard to describe by just using words. Enjoy....!

    Thank you, that is a great description. Thank you for taking the time to write it up for me.

    I think the white dot is meant to be the point at which you read off the scale, just guessing.

    Strange but the on/off switch on the handle under the dial does not seem to have much effect, the ornage lamo seems to glow and return after firing regardless of where the swtich is!!? in other words it is difficult to turn the thing off once it gets going.

    I assume the red square means OFF and down for ON?

    Regards,
    John
