Re: Sunpak Auto 522 thyristor flash

Hi Doyle,
 
Depending on the make and model of the DSLR you want to use the flash with, there should be a way to use this flash in manual mode only. Unless the camera has a pc sync terminal (most don't) you would need to get to get an adapter for the camera that mounts to the hotshoe, and has a pc sync terminal on it. You would also have to use manual only flash settings, which can be troublesome unless you’re a very experienced photographer.
 
With all the advanced capabilities of modern flashes I would suggest getting a dedicated flash for whatever camera you end up purchasing. I hope this helps!
