Can anybody advise me as to whether the Miranda 730 TCD flashgun is compatible with my K10D.
I know this is a regularly asked sort of question, but I've found nothing relating to this specific flashgun.
I've had it for years, in fact 25 next February to be exact. It's an excellent flash, but I've not used it on my K10D which I've had for over 3 years.
I've read posts about testing the voltages between the centre contact and the side mount contact, but the only voltage I get is 1.5v and when I fire the flash it drops to 0, and when the flash is recharged it goes back to 1.5 volts.
Reading other posts about various other Miranda flashes, they are talking around 7 to 8 volts or 100s.
Help.
K10D. Tamron 18-250 F3.5/6.3, P-KA 50mm 1.4, Takumar-A 28-80mm F3.5/4.5, Vivitar 70-300mm F4.2/5.8, Teleplus MC-7 2x converter and some Cokin stuff. Also Optio E80(coz I've got big fingers!), Pentax A3 and Chinon CP-7m.

That will be safe to use --I have a Miranda 630 CD Multi-dedicated flash and it works.

This is a useful site for checking trigger voltages

Unfortunately, it doesn't include the 730.
