Will flashes from Minolta AF cameras work on Sony Alpha cameras?

I just purchased the following lot on EBay for $240. I figure the two lenses alone were well worth the price.

Minolta Maxxum 7000 camera w/AF Zoom 35-70mm 1:4(22) attached lens.
•Minolta Maxxum Camera Strap (Looks brand new).
•Minolta Maxxum leather wrap around case (Looks brand new).
•Minolta AF 70-210 Macro lens w/ Haze 55mm(UV) filter. (This is in almost perfect condition and shows almost no wear whatsoever).
•DeJUR Electra M-260 flash w/manual (Was never used).
•Minolta Maxxum 2800 AF Flash in original box with all included accessories and manuals.
•Minolta L35 (UV) filter.
•Vantage Carrying Case (in fair condition but fits everything perfectly).

I own a Sony A200. Will these flash units work on my camera? I’m not fussed if they don’t.

Hi,

Seems like craiglist strikes again – looks a bargain!

The issue as you will know, is that Digital Cameras can be trashed by a high trigger voltage. The Minolta 2800 AF seems to have a trigger of 2volts – so fine for a modern camera – see the link (the bad language is not mine!). So at least it would be safe to see if it fires. The Minolta will act only as a manual flash of course.

Sorry, never heard of the DeJUR, maybe someone else can help there.

To be 100% safe, you could always use the DeJUR via a low-cost photo slave, giving you a useful second modeling light.

Cheers
Charles
