I have a sunpak 383 right now, and was going to buy another one, but I found out they arent made anymore, so I found a used Sunpak 433D (looks identical) which has the same 120' guide number


Ill be using the CyberSyncs with them.

Will it work??

I have a 433D, it will work fine and dandy. Just make sure the 433D you are getting is the Nikon one with adjustable power settings. You can adjust it from Full, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16. The one that was made for the Canon can only fire at full power, which isn't very useful.


Edit: I just looked at ebay. Apparently Sunpak made a couple of versions of the 433D for Canon. Some can only fire at full power and some have manual power settings. Just get the manual power adjustable one and you'll be golden. :)

It is only some of the 433 AF flash units that lack a power setting, and even some of them have power settings.

If it is a 433D (no AF designation) , it will have manual power settings to 1/16 power.

Enjoy! Lon
