    Mamiya 645 AF + Nikon SB-900

    Can't seem to find the answer with Google...

    Will a Nikon SB-900 work on a Mamiya 645 AF?

    Thanks.

    Cool Re: Mamiya 645 AF + Nikon SB-900

    HI ..i do believe it will work on auto thyristor or manual mode only..
    the camera and the flash would not have any data communication as
    they are dedicated units..hope this helps..as a side note I occasionaly
    use my Nikon 900 flash with my mamiya 645e with this mode and it works
    fine but not as well as my Metz units..George

    Since I wasn't sure about the voltages, I just use the flash off camera (via PW triggers).

    Thanks guys, manual is fine, i was just scarred of burning something up.

    Maybe i'll grab a Metz flash for it.

    Yes. It will trigger. AF isnt that old to go for high voltage blip on the central pin..

    Couldn't get mine to work on the hot shoe. Worked great on a remote cord setup.
