Sunpak "TTL" Flash Module

TTL with a single hot shoe contact? I think not.

These modules plug into Sunpak flash units of the 1990s, and there were ones dedicated to camera brands that did allow TTL flash control. But this STD-1D module was specifically non-dedicated, so has the single contact (STD = "standard"). I don't know why they had to mention the 120J, a fairly rare bare bulb flash unit. Shows they don't know much about this thing - that will reduce their potential market a bit.

He does not seem to have the 120J on sale, but does have a truck-load of overpriced film cameras, mostly P&S advertised as "lomo" or "student".

The module is over-priced by a factor of about three, although oddly enough the non-dedicated STD-1D do seem to sell for more than the dedicated ones. Perhaps buyers don't trust film era dedication on digital cameras, and maybe it is damaging on some brands. The PT-1D module is OK on Pentax DSLRs though.

Maybe it's a pancake camera. There has been talk of incorporating cameras into contact lenses, after all

How/why he managed to squeeze eight pictures out of that subject I don't know.

Nothing

This seller has plenty of this, so no need to rush. No returns mind you.

This guy (I am presuming) posts this kind of thing frequently. Seems a trifle bizarre.

He says 'Not working' - and that is just the kind of image I would expect from a non-working flash.

The images of the other items she is selling leave a lot to be desired, too, as do the descriptions.
