    Hi Folks!

    I just got new Metz 32MZ-3 with Minolta SCA 3301 Adapter for my Dimage 7i,
    but it seems not to work in TTL mode. All picures are too bright, I suppose
    the flash fires allways with full power. What did I set wrong?

    I can set up the camera to A-mode and use local flash automatic. It works
    mostly, but the camera "jumps" between correct shutter time and long
    exposure (like without flash). Sometimes I'm able to catch such moment and
    the camera really use this long time, but the flash is also fired.

    Any suggestion to solve these Probs?

    Thanks a lot in advance

    Yes, the Metz.de site recommends the SCA 3302 M3 for the Dimage 7 and your
    flash, so presumably Minolta (like Nikon) use a different SCA for digital
    and film cameras.
