THE FLASH UNIT TO YOUR CAMERA
Slide locking wedge 2 towards the rear of
the flash unit and slide mounting foot 1 into
the accessory shoe on the camera. Secure
the flash unit by sliding locking wedge 2 to-
wards the front of the unit.
If your camera has a hot shoe contact, the
flash unit has now been adapted complete-
ly to your camera.
If your camera does not have a hot shoe
flash unit should be made with the syn-
SETTING THE SHUTTER
Check the instructions
for use of your camera, then set the shutter speed of your ca-
mera to the proper setting for use with an electronic flash, or use 1/30 second.
This electronic flash unit is fitted with the Philips Energy Saving System so that optimal
use is made of the batteries. Set switch 14to the standby
position, press the switch
and the electronic flash unit starts to load. This is indicated by load indicator lamp 17.
After a period of time, loading is switched off automatically
and the load indicator lamp
17 goes off. During loading, the indicator lamps 20, 21 and 22 light up one after the ot-
her and continue to be lit as long as there is sufficient electrical charge to make a flash
with the maximum
of power. As the charge fades after auto switch off these indicators
one after another, showing the remaining power.
Lamps 20, 21 and 22 glow at full load 1/1.
Lamps 20 and 21 glow at three-quarter
Lamp 20 glows at half load 1/2.
the lamps 20, 21 and 22 are lit, the lower distance
scale 12 should be used. This
scale is located at the same height as lamp 22 and shows the maximum
values at full load.
only lamp 20 is lit, you should use the upper distance
At half load (corresponding
to indicator lamp 20) you only have half the distance you
have at full load. If the lamps 20 and 21 are lit, you have 3/4 of the maximum shown on
distance scale 12.
The flash unit reloads if you press switch 14 briefly. The flash unit reloads automatical-
ly after an exposure has been made.
When the batteries are run down or are no longer capable of loading the flash unit
the available flash power is indicated by the indicator lamps 20,21 and 22.
These indicator lamps give a dear indication of the state of the batteries and therefore
make it possible to use batteries for longer and more economically
than is the case
with flash units not using the ESS system. In addition, this electronic flash unit is fitted
with an energy-saving
thyristor computer which conserves the remaining power from a
flash for the next flash and therefore creates a further saving in
