minoxiis flash

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Minox Photography : One Thread

I just purchased a small flash cube type minox flash. Inside were two small PX-825 1.5v batteries. The unit fits my camera perfectly and the synch lugs mate like they were made for each other. Question is, what do I need to make this flash work? Also, if this unit isnt made to work on my IIIs, what kind of trigger (voltage or mechanical) comes from the camera out the synch port? I have half a mind to fabricate what is needed to make a tiny flash for this camera.By the way, it is a minox flash unit, but I didnt see any particular identifying marks. Thank you in advance.

chris, have you check the 825 batteries with a volt meter ?

If they are dead, see thread "batteries for C4 cube flash" on how to make it work.
