Does anyone know if I can use an Olympus T32 flash gun on the hot shoe of a Fujifilm S9500? If not how can I find out?

There was a thread on here a while ago about using 'wrong' flashes on these cameras and I think the answer is no. It might damage the camera. Something to do with voltage (?)
I suggest a trawl through the 'cameras' forum looking under 'Fuji' before you try it!

Thanks for your reply. It's all to do with the trigger voltage being high or low. A bit of googling tells me the the T32 is around 12 volts but I dont know if thats considered to be high or low.

Hi Cephus,
Sorry, can't help more than that but at least you now know there could be a potentially destructive problem!

Found it!
There's some fairly confusing advice on there but it might just help.

Should be OK...

Take a look here - scroll down to 'Olympus' and the trigger voltages look to be fine. OK - 'The Pundits' say '6v' is the figure for digital but... my Sigma SD9, Nikon D70, Nikon D200 and D300 manuals ALL say 250v are OK.

>< 7 and 14v as reported on the link should be fine.

If in any doubt - get a Wien adapter .

Rule of thumb only, But most digital operate at 6 volts, Maybe less.

Safe option " If in doubt " don't try using it.

Or use a " Safe Sync " made by Wein, This goes between the camera & the flash, Basically soaks up any overvoltages.

That said the Wein Safe Sync is around 45 quid....For that you could buy a flash unit that will be safe to use....Wink

Sure you could use it remotely to, But lets face it, The T32 is a fairly basic unit, No bounce, Sits close to the camera, Pin arrangement is Oly specific, I have one around here somewhere, No plans to park it on my digital cameras though....!!!

EDIT: Beaten by Mike....Sad But add to my comment, The T32 sits almost on top of the camera, You may have issues with the lens/body creating a shadow in the lower part of an image, Assuming it works that is..

EDIT 2: Mike is that Wein adapter the same as the safe sync, I wonder...???
