ook.. i have a minolta x-300 with a vivitar auto thyristor 2800 (whatever the hell that means) that connects to my hotshoe and i have no idea how to use it! what do i set for my shutter speed to take into account the extra burst of light? if i put it on the auto setting, will it recognize the flash and compensate? the flash has asa and din information on the back of it with fstops but i don't understand it very much how sad. can you clue me in a little bit?
