Will it work with sony a6000?
Asked by: Tn Pht L.
Don't know. I have Olympus and Canon. I believe it work with Sony. Buy one a great bargain. Put in fresh batteries set on lowest power and fire away taking photos of dog cat and kids. In dark room and bright sun. You'll get $1000 lesson for $50 good luck. Mike

question

What is the best way to set it up as a slave for Canon S110? Thank you.
Asked by: paul
If the S110 does not have a flash or the flash is not strong enough to trigger the Bolt at any distance, you might try putting the camera in Movie Digest mode, and manually trigering the Bolt using cable or a remote (Pocket Wizard or other) in the 4 secs you have of Movie Digest mode. Yes, it's a kludge, but it might get you the lighting you want.

question

Will this work with Canon 5D Mark II?
Asked by: Nicole B.
Hi Carol, The Bolt VD-410 is strictly a MANUAL flash unit with a standard hot shoe. It should work with any camera that has a hot shoe, PC, or other flash connection. It will NOT function as a TTL flash with any camera. If you are comfortable with MANUAL exposure control, I expect you will love it. I have two of them, and it's the best value for $100.00 that I've ever spent.
