I have a Godox EZa-C1... Will it control my Lumix FZ1000.


As it appears to be designed to be used with Canon equipment, probably not.

Where do I find the AC Charger adapter for a Godox PB820S Propac. I have look online and can not find the charger for this battery pack.


If you still have the 12V car adapter it ships with, you can buy a 12V supply with a cigarette lighter connector and use that .

You could try contacting their main distributor who lists the complete device :http://www.lightinthebox.com/godox-pb820-backup-external-battery-pack-for-speedlite-vsp-136265_p995394.html , but does not list the charger alone.

Failing the distributor, try contacting the factory. They offer direct contact for support (godox@godox.com),including skype chat (GODOX@hotmail.com for MSN/skype).

Adorama sells the "Flashpoint" series of devices which seem to be relabeled versions of Godox products, but only sell the 960 larger power pack not the 820.

I read that the 820 DIN cable connector is compatible with Quantum cables. That *might* mean that one of the Quantum chargers *might* work for you, as those use a DIN connector for some of the rechargeable Quantum batteries. I once adapted a wall adapter for charging a Quantum battery pack and used a DIN connector. Unfortunately the Quantum chargers are expensive and there are a number of different models,so it may be difficult to figure out what will work for yo.

Canon Speedlite 580 EX (mark 1) 6 years of continuous use - single flash, multiple flash & continuous burst - with rechargeable batteries. All is well, until recently. Now recharge time has quickly...


The capacitor (neck) is no longer hold a charge or charging circuit is going out on a extended breaks.

Save your money and buy ATG's Godox TT685c.
If you buys two, then you got ATG wireless radio ETTL II flashes.
It would cost over $1,000.00+ USD to buy two Canon 600EX II-RT just to do the same with two ATG's.

MY CAMERA (CANON 1000D) TAKES BEAUTIFUL DAYTIME PHOTO'S BUT CAN'T SEEM TO FOCUS ON A SUBJECT IN LOW LIGHT & AS A RESULT WONT TAKE THE SHOT. WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO TO TAKE LOW LIGHT / NIGHT TIME SHOTS ?...


Focusing in low light can be difficult for the autofocus system and sometimes you will need to use the manual focus, you can select the magnified image and see if that helps
See the online manual - page98 refers to how to magnify the image - using the magnify button - changes between 5X 10X and full screen
To help the camera autofocus there is an assist beam - this takes the form of flashes from flash to help the AF system focus - make sure it is ON - there is a custom function full details on Page 157 C.Fn III: Auto focus/Drive 6 AF-assist beam firing
FYIThe support site for this camera is here, including online manual http://software.canon-europe.com/products/0010629.asp

I have a Tamron lense 18-250mmm for Canon. It does not focus with zoom use, iwith different Canon bodies , particularly with a focus on a light or low contrast point. Canon lenses do not seem to have this...


In low light situations, connect a speedlite flash to your body (e.g. 430EXII or 580EXII). These flashes emit a AF assist beam to assist focussing in low light situations.

Sometimes when i'm taking picture my flash wont stop blinking for a few seconds.


The 400D uses flash assisted focusing. In low light conditions the auto focus cannot get a focus lock so it pops the flash a few times so the lens has a chance to focus. You will notice this will go away when in the manual focus mode (the switch on the side of the lens).

The only way around this problem (as people in a photo think the photo has already been taken and looks away when the camera actually takes the picture) is to use a hotshoe mounted TTL Canon Speedlight (430ex or 580ex) which use an infra-red focussing beam.

Canon Speedlite 430EX zoom issue


You're gonna kick yourself, but here goes, you know that clear plastic wide beam shield on the front, make sure it's fully inserted or else the auto zoom won't work while it's in use, (or the flash thinks it's in use)
