Minolta Program 5400HS not working with Sony Alpha a550?

Recommended Posts

Hi all i bought a Minolta Program 5400HS as a flash upgrade for my Sony Alpha a550 as i read that they were compatible due to having the same hotshoe. Well it seems not entirely though. It seems that messages on the web vary a lot. Some reviewers state that all works, some state it only works on manual mode. I've been unable to get it go in either mode.


Thanks for any assistance!

A few questions to identify if it works before showing how to get properly exposed pictures


Does the camera give you a flash ready signal in the finder with the flash on and mounted in the hot shoe ? It should also get into X-synch speed like 1/60 sec

With the flash in Manual Mode, does the flash trigger when you release the shutter ?
