Is there a hack or something that enables rear shutter sync with a third party full manual flash like vivitar or sunpack?

thanks already.

Just set it in camera, it's the camera's job to send out the trigger pulse at the right time. ;)

Thats the whole issue. You see, if you have a third party not e-ttl compatible flash on the camera, it will no longer show the flash menu. Did you understand what I mean.
Its not possible to set it in the camera directly, there must be a way around.

I understand, but it should still be possible. All your flash does is....eh...flash, when it receives a pulse from the camera hotshoe. It might work if you have a PC connection cable.

Or just set your synchronisation to rear curtain before you mount the flash, that might work.

The 1000D i have, is a cheapo, it does not have a PC sync connectivity.

But, I should try enabling IInd shutter sync before mounting the flash, that might work. :idea:
why did'nt that occure to me earlier. I'll try that in the evening, and will come back to you if it works. Thanks.

Maybe it will work with a hotshoe -> PC -> hotshoe connection?
