Push the mounting foot firmly onto the camera until it stops.
The flash is locked in place automatically. If the built-in flash in the camera is protruding, lower it before fitting the flash unit.
AUTO POWER ON/OFF AND FILM
Auto Power On
Power is supplied to this flash automatically (auto power on) in the following situations.
When the camera is used with the flash attached. When the flash on/off button is pressed.
Flash on/off button
Removing From The Camera
While pressing the mounting-foot release button , remove the flash.
Auto Power Off
Power is switched off and data panel indicators disappear automatically to save the batteries when the camera or flash is not used for four minutes (auto power off).
When the flash is switched off (right diagram), the data panel indicator will disappear after eight seconds, or after 60 minutes in the case of wireless flash (p. 40). Custom settings may be used to change the time of auto power off, or to disable auto power off (p. 65).
Do not use high-speed film (rating in excess of ISO 1000) with TTL direct metering ( displayed on the data panel, p. 36). Use of such film increases the exposure error.
The low-speed film limit is the same as that for the films specified for the camera. See the camera manual for details.
P MODE FLASH: THE BASICS
P MODE FLASH
1. Select the P mode on the camera. 2. Press the flash ON/OFF button to display or. 3. Press the shutter-release button partway down. 4. Press the shutter-release button partway down and check that the subject is within the flash range.
See page 18 for details of the flash range.
5. When the flash is charged, press the shutter-release button to take the photo.
The flash is charged when indicators on the rear of the unit and in the camera viewfinder are both lit.
and appear with automatic flash. Only appears with fill flash.
When the correct exposure has been obtained for the photo just taken:
is displayed in the data panel for approximately four seconds. The indicator blinks in the camera viewfinder.
With the Maxxum/Dynax 7, automatic flash is used with full-auto, and fill flash when the P mode is selected. With the Maxxum/Dynax 9 and 800si, fill flash is used when the P mode is selected (automatic flash may also be selected as a custom setting with the 800si). With other cameras, automatic flash is used when the P mode is selected. Fill flash may be selected in the same way as the built-in flash in the camera.
3. Set the aperture and shutter speed, and focus the subject.
Reduce the aperture (ie increase the f-stop) to reduce the flash range, or open the aperture (ie reduce the f-stop) to increase the flash range. A shutter speed faster than the sync speed cannot be selected with the Maxxum STsi, 400si, and Dynax 500si, 500siSuper, and 404si.
ZOOM FLASH COVERAGE
24mm focal length 85mm focal length
The section explains the various methods available to make full use of the flash unit.
Press the shutter-release button partway down to display the automatic zoom coverage on the data panel.
Automatic zoom coverage is set as follows:
Focal length in use 24 - 27mm 28 - 34mm 35 - 49mm 50 - 69mm 70 - 84mm 85mm or more Coverage 24mm 28mm 35mm 50mm 70mm 85mm
[24mm] blinks when a lens having a focal length of less than 24mm is used with auto zoom. Use of the built-in wide-angle adapter (p. 25) is recommended in this case to prevent darkening at the periphery of the image.
This flash unit employs auto zoom to cover a range of focal lengths from 24mm to 85mm. There is normally no need to manually adjust zoom coverage.
ZOOM FLASH COVERAGE Manual Zoom
Zoom may be set manually irrespective of the focal length currently in use.
Built-In Wide Angle Adapter (17mm zoom angle)
Pull-out the built-in wide-angle adapter for the 17mm zoom angle.
Pull out the adapter.
Press the ZOOM button to display the desired zoom coverage.
[M.ZOOM] is displayed above zoom coverage when zoom is set manually.
The zoom coverage display on the data panel shows [17mm]. The flash range is also displayed. When flat subjects are photographed from the front with very wideangle lenses such as the 17-35mm f/3.5G lens at the wide-angle setting, the distance between the lens and the center and periphery varies so that the amount of light from the periphery is slightly reduced.
The periphery of the image darkens when a zoom coverage less than the focal length currently in use is set.
Zoom coverage is changed in the following order. Auto zoom, 24mm, 28mm, 35mm, 50mm, 70mm, 85mm
One or more test flashes may be tried before photographing. This is particularly convenient for checking shadows when the flash is separated from the camera such as in wireless flash.
* Modeling flash is used to check shadows on the subject before taking photos.
2. Press the test-flash button (modeling-flash button) when charging is complete.
1. Set the test-flash mode selection/hold switch to the desired mode.
Flash once at the set light level (LEVEL 1/1~1/32).
Use this test-flash mode when a flash meter is used in manual flash mode (p. 36). In multiple flash mode (p. 60), while pressing the test-flash button, the flash fires the number of times you have set.
Flash three times at a rate of two flashes per second (guide number 5.6 at 24mm position).
Used to verify overall shadow.
Flash 4 seconds at a rate of 40 flashes per second (guide number 1.4 at 24mm position).
Convenient for verifying detailed shadow for macro photography.
HOLD The setting prevents mis-operation.
Photographs may be taken, however all flash operations, except use of the test-flash button and data panel illuminator, are locked.
TEST / MODELING
Do not release the shutter while the flash is in use. The strength of shadows will differ from that during actual photography. Shadows will be lighter when using the flash in bright areas or outdoors, or when using bounce flash, and verification will therefore be more difficult.
Strong shadows appear when flash is used with a wall directly behind the subject. In such cases the flash is directed at the ceiling etc. so that the subject is illuminated with reflected light, and the intensity of the shadows are reduced to produce a softer light in the photograph.
The flash may be set to the following angles.
Rotate the flash towards the ceiling or left and right while pressing the bounce lock-release button.
Upwards: 45, 60, 75, 90 Downwards: 10 (see Close-up Photography p. 31) Right: 30, 45, 60, 75, 90 Left: 30, 45, 60, 75, 90, 120, 150, 180
The bounce lock engages at the 0 position. The lock-release button need not to be pressed when the flash is returned to the original position. The flash range is not displayed on the data panel when the flash is rotated upwards or left and right. High-speed sync is also cleared. Use a white ceiling or wall to reflect the flash. A colored surface may color the light. High ceilings or highly reflective surfaces such as glass are not recommended.
The bounce indicator appears on the data panel.
BOUNCE FLASH Adjusting Bounce Angle
An unsightly photo results when both direct light and bounced light from the flash are used simultaneously. Determine the bounce angle in reference to the distance to the reflective surface, the distance from the camera to the subject, and the focal length of the lens etc.
CLOSE-UP PHOTOGRAPHY (DOWNWARD BOUNCE)
Tilt the flash slightly downwards when photographing objects between 0.7m and 1.5m from the camera to ensure accurate illumination.
Rotate the flash downwards while pressing the bounce lock-release button.
The downward bounce indicator appears on the data panel. The rotation angle is 10.
When flash is bounced upwards Determine the angle in relation to the table at right.
Focal length of lens 70mm minimum 28~70mm 28mm maximum
Bounce angle 75, 90
When photographing at a distance closer than 0.7m, the flash will not be able to completely cover the subject and the bottom of the picture will be darker. Use an off-camera or macro flash.
Bouncing to Left and Right Rotating the flash by 90 to bounce light sideways is recommended. If an angle of less than 90 is used, care should be taken to ensure that direct light from the flash does not illuminate the subject.
DATA PANEL ILLUMINATOR
Illuminates the data panel at low-light levels.
In low-light or when subject contrast is low, pressing the shutter-release button partway down for autofocus lights the red lamp on the front of the flash unit. This is the AF illuminator used as an aid in autofocusing.
Press the data panel illuminator.
The data panel is illuminated for approximately eight seconds. This period is extended if the flash is used during this time. To extinguish the data panel illuminator, press the button again while the data panel is illuminated.
The AF illuminator is suitable for use with local focus areas on all cameras having wide focus areas. The AF illuminator operates even when the flash is off. The camera AF illuminator does not operate while the flash AF illuminator is operating. The AF illuminator does not operate when continuous AF is used in the focusing mode (when continually focusing on a moving subject). The AF illuminator may not operate when the focal length of the lens is greater than 300mm. It will not operate when the flash is off-camera, or when the AF macro-zoom 3X-1X lens is used.
Manual flash metering
When the shutter-release button is pressed partway down, the distance where the proper exposure will be obtained will appear in the data panel.
HIGH-SPEED SYNC (HSS)
3. Press the + or button to select.
[HSS] remains on the data panel. High-speed sync is cleared when is selected with the procedure described above, and a shutter speed faster than the sync speed can no longer be set. It is recommended that photos be taken in bright locations. When photographing in dark areas the shutter speed will not exceed the sync speed, even when is selected. The flash range with high-speed sync is less than for normal flash photography. Check that the subject is within the displayed flash range before taking the photo. High-speed sync cannot be used with multiple flash, ratio flash, or bounce flash in the upwards, left, and right directions. When using a flash meter or color meter, high-speed sync cannot be used because it interferes with the proper exposure. Either select to clear it, or select a shutter speed less than the sync speed.
The Maxxum STsi, QTsi, 400si, 300si and Dynax 500si, 500siSuper, 404si, 303si, 300si do not support this function, and high-speed sync therefore cannot be used.
1. Press the mode button to display or on the data panel. 2. Press the select button to blink [HSS].
The currently selected high-speed sync setting ( / ) also blinks simultaneously.
High-speed sync eliminates the restrictions of flash sync speed, and allows you to use flash over the entire shutter speed range of the camera. The selectable aperture range is increased, allowing portrait shots with flash in which the aperture is opened to leave backgrounds out of focus and thus accentuate the human subject.
4. Press the select button repeatedly until blinking stops.
WIRELESS/REMOTE FLASH MODE
Photographs taken with the flash attached to the camera are flat as shown in photo. In such cases, remove the flash from the camera and position it to obtain a more threedimensional effect as shown in photo. Photo was taken using the cameras built-in flash and the flash located separately from the camera, with a light intensity of 1:2 respectively to produce a soft gradation between light and dark, and natural shadows. When taking this type of photograph with a single lens reflex camera, the camera and the flash unit are most commonly connected by cable. This flash eliminates the need for a cable to transmit signals to the flash unit by using the light of the flash itself as a signal. This type of flash control is referred to as wireless (remote) flash. The proper exposure is determined automatically by the camera.
WIRELESS/REMOTE FLASH MODE Notes On Wireless Flash
The MS-2 mini-stand is useful when the flash unit is off the camera. The mini-stand has a tripod configuration with a threaded hole to attach the flash unit. Multiple flash cannot be used. When another wireless flash is being used nearby, the channel can be changed using custom settings, to prevent interference (p. 65). Make sure that RATIO is not displayed on the data panel of the offcamera flash except using with the Wireless Remote Flash Controller. If ratio is selected with the off-camera flash, proper exposure will not be obtained.
Pre-flash fires when wireless/remote flash mode is selected. A flash meter and color meter cannot be used. Test flash for the wireless/remote flash is in the currently selected test flash mode. Three flashes occur with and flashes continue for four seconds with. One flash occurs at the HOLD position. Shutter speed is 1/60 or 1/45 of a second or less (this differs between cameras). Use with high-speed sync is possible only with the Maxxum/Dynax 7 in normal wireless mode (not ratio). The zoom position for the 5600HS (D) is automatically set to 24mm. Zoom position other than 24mm is not recommended. In wireless/remote flash mode, ADI metering and pre-flash metering will be canceled and TTL flash metering will be used automatically. When slow sync is used with wireless flash, press the AE lock button to generate a test flash and take the photo while holding down the AE lock button.
WIRELESS/REMOTE FLASH MODE -1 Using The Built-In Flash
1. Attach the 5600HS (D) to the camera and switch the flash and camera power supplies on. 2. Set the camera to wireless flash.
The method used for the setting varies with the camera. See the camera manual for details. When the camera is set to wireless the 5600HS (D) is also set to wireless automatically, and WL is displayed on the data panel.
6. Use test flash to check the 5600HS (D) flash.
The method used for test flash differs with the camera used (eg. press the AE lock button, or spot AE lock button). See the camera manual for details. If the test flash doesnt fire, change the position of the camera, flash, and subject, or point the wireless/remote control-signal receiver towards the camera.
The various flash settings may be changed as necessary. The following five items may be changed. Wireless channel setting (channels 1~4) Flash range units (m/ft) Time to auto power off (4 minutes, 15 minutes, 60 minutes, none) Time to auto power off when using wireless (60 minutes, none) Exposure modes in which manual flash and multiple flash may be set (M mode only, all modes)

External Battery Pack EP-2 Set
The external battery pack contains six AA-size alkaline batteries. It reduces charging time by half, and doubles the number of flashes possible.
CAUTIONS WHILE HANDLING
This flash unit generates strong light, and should therefore not be used in front of the eyes.
The flash unit may be used over a temperature range of 20C to 50C. Do not leave the flash unit exposed extremely high temperatures (eg. direct sunlight inside motor vehicles), or in conditions of high humidity. The response of the data panel becomes slower as temperature decreases, and it becomes darker at high temperatures. Restore it to normal temperature if these problems occur. To prevent condensation from forming, place the camera in a sealed plastic bag when bringing it from cold environment to a warm environment. Allow it to come to room temperature before removing it from the bag. Battery capacity decreases at colder temperatures. Keep your camera and spare batteries in a warm inside pocket when shooting in cold weather. may blink even when there is some power left in the batteries in cold weather. Batteries will regain some of their capacity when warmed to normal operating temperature. This flash unit is not waterproof. Care is therefore required to ensure that it does not come into contact with water or sand when used near water. Contact with water, sand, dust, or salt content may result in a malfunction.
Specifications are based on the latest information available at the time of printing and are subject to change without notice.

New Konica Minolta 5.0-Megapixel Digital Camera: The DiMAGE Z5
Product Highlights 12x optical Mega Zoom and 4x digital zoom for 48x total zoom; complemented with CCDshift Anti-Shake System Fastest-in-class*1 Rapid AF with Predictive Focus Control High-quality pictures with 5.0-megapixel CCD, Konica Minolta GT APO lens, and Konica Minolta CxProcess III image processing technology High-resolution, shake-free VGA movies that look as good as TV images Ease of operation with large 2.0-inch LCD, compact body, and fast response Super Macro mode for shooting subjects as close as 0.4 inches from the lens 26mm wide-angle shooting (35mm equivalent) with the optional Wide-angle Converter ZCW300
Features Incredible 48x Total Zoom Range Combining the 12x optical zoom with the 4x digital zoom gives users a 48x total zoom, ideal for taking distance shots at sporting events or when capturing far-away landscapes. This incredible optical zoom delivers a focal range equivalent to a 35-420mm range on a 35mm camera lens. With the digital zoom, total zoom is equivalent to 35-1680mm (35mm equivalent). CCD-Shift Anti-Shake Function The DiMAGE Z5 uses Konica-Minoltas proprietary CCD-shift Anti-Shake function, convenient for telephoto shots and dimly lit situations. Anti-Shake compensates to minimize the effect of camera shake, allowing photographers to shoot with shutter speeds four to eight times longer (2-3 stops) than on cameras without an Anti-Shake function. The DiMAGE Z5 can correct shaking without increasing shutter speed or raising ISO sensitivity, factors that increase image noise. The CCD-shift method doesnt require extra correction lenses like optical anti-shake systems, so the DiMAGE Z5s body remains compact and light. The DiMAGE Z5s Anti-Shake system is effective in correcting both the fine movement of pressing the shutter-release button and the larger and slower movements of the users body. Rapid AF is Fastest in Class*1 for Autofocus (AF) The DiMAGE Z5 focuses in approximately 0.2 seconds at wide angle and approximately 0.3 seconds at telephoto. In Continuous AF, the DiMAGE Z5 includes Predictive Focus Control, which allows users to capture sharper images of moving subjectslike a child running in the backyard. The DiMAGE Z5 also offers improved AF accuracy through 5-point Area AF, which gives five focus areas that overlap horizontally and thus reduce AF failures that occur when subjects appear in between focus areas and cause a perspective conflict. Large, Easy-to-View 2.0-inch LCD The DiMAGE Z5s 2.0-inch LCD makes it easier to take pictures, easier to play back and view stills and movie clips, and easier to navigate menus.

5.0-Megapixel CCD for Beautiful Prints The 5.0-megapixel, 1/2.5-inch CCD produces plenty of detail for creating high-quality enlargements as big as 6x8 inches at 300-dpi print resolution. In addition, the CCD's primary color filter offers high color fidelity. Konica Minolta GT APO Lens The DiMAGE Z5 employs a high-performance lens system that supports CCDs with 5 million effective pixels. The optical lens system consists of 13 elements in 10 groups and includes two AD (anomalous dispersion) glass lenses and two aspheric elements, a construction that adds up to sharp, high-quality images. Multi-coating on 14 lens surfaces ensures minimal flaring and ghosting in all zoom ranges. A 5-vane iris diaphragm beautifully reproduces a near-circular fading effect. Superbly Detailed Images with Konica Minoltas CxProcess III The DiMAGE Z5 incorporates CxProcess III, the latest evolution of Konica Minoltas proprietary image processing technology. This means even higher resolution and the ability to capture the subtlest details of texture, resulting in photos that look as natural as the subject itself. High-quality Movies as Beautiful as TV Images The DiMAGE Z5 takes movies in VGA size (640x480) at 30 frames per second for smooth video with sound rivaling TV images. Users can also choose from other movie image sizes. The AntiShake function also works with the movie function to give shake-free telephoto movies. The XR (Extended Recording) Movie function lets users record movie clips onto the SD memory card as long as it has the capacity. With Night Movie, the DiMAGE Z5 can record in extreme low-light conditions. The Select Shot function allows users to make stills from movie clips, while the Movie Editing function allows photographers to cut unwanted parts from movie files. Get as Close as 0.4 inches with Super Macro Shoot amazing close-ups in either Macro or Super Macro modes. Whichever mode is chosen, Konica Minoltas superior image quality will make close-ups look stunning and powerful. In Super Macro mode, photographers can bring the lens as close as 0.4 inches from their subject. Real Motion LCD Monitor The DiMAGE Z5 features the Real Motion LCD monitor, which delivers crystal clear images. The smooth, realistic movement displayed on the monitor makes it ideal for shooting moving subjects. UHS (Ultra High Speed) Continuous Shooting The DiMAGE Z5 captures 20 images at approximately 10 frames per second at an image size of 1024x768 in UHS (Ultra High Speed) continuous shooting. This function is convenient for situations where users need to capture and study their form in continuous movement, such as with a golf swing. Progressive Capture With the DiMAGE Z5 in Progressive Capture mode, the last several images in the sequenceas many as 20 images at approximately 10 frames per second at an image size of 1024x768 get saved when users stop pressing the shutter-release button. So when photographing fast-moving subjects, Progressive Capture ensures that they are recorded when and where users want them. These functions are handy for shooting sporting events or for recording and improving form in personal sports training situations.
Noise Reduction Noise Reduction gives exceptional night images by automatically preventing the blemishes and graininess associated with slow-shutter shots. PASM Exposure Control and Metering Modes The DiMAGE Z5 offers incredible control over exposure. There are four modes: Program, Aperture Priority, Shutter Priority, and Manual. The DiMAGE Z5 has three metering modes: Multi-segment, Center-weighted, and Spot. Multi-segment metering uses 256 segments to determine exposure. Automatic Digital Subject Program Selection Automatic Digital Subject Program Selection automatically chooses the best recording mode for images. Users can also manually select from Portrait, Sports action, Landscape, Sunset and Night portrait modes. Key Customize For added flexibility and convenience, the flash button can be customized to handle different settings. This means that instead of going through the menus on the LCD, users can use the flash button to change settings like the drive mode, white balance, focus mode, color mode, or sensitivity. PictBridge*3-Compliant Forget all about complicated connections with a PC. Users can get fast, fun printouts directly from their camera by connecting the DiMAGE Z5 to a PictBridge*3-compliant printer. Photographers can check which images they want to print on the DiMAGE Z5s LCD monitor and then print out their favorites. Ergonomic Design The DiMAGE Z5s design is advanced yet familiar and easy-to-use. Despite its long 12x zoom range and large 2.0-inch LCD, it weighs just approximately 12 ounces. Its also easy to tote and operate even for camera novices. The ergonomic form makes it easy to keep on holding even for those steady zoom shots. Optional Wide ConverterWide-angle Converter ZCW-300 Kit The optional Wide-angle Converter Kit allows users to fit more of the scene into each shot. The lens has a 26mm wide angle thats ideal for capturing indoor or outdoor architecture and panoramic landscape shots. Compatible with Optional Flashes The DiMAGE Z5 is equipped with a built-in flash. But if users need even more flash power, the Konica Minolta Program/Maxxum Flash 3600HS(D), 5600HS(D), or 2500(D) flash units can be used.
