This little 3 volt flash is pretty amazing. It has a slide switch on the side that allows you to select from 1, 2 or 3 flash sequences to match the pre-flash count of the camera you are using it with. In this video I will show how to hack it to use as an internal slave flash controlled by the Safari Camera Controller with the Mosfet Backpacker. The same Flash Program is used on the Safari board that would be used when utilizing the Safari with Flash Backpacker. but since we aren't adding trigger wires to the DF120, we don't need the Flash Backpacker to make it work, the circuitry on the DF120 along with the PT sensor that is ran outside the flash case does what we need it to do. Due to the fact that we aren't adding trigger wires this flash CANNOT be used with a traditional slave controller board as a remote or wireless slave flash.

Don't get too excited about it, at the moment I have to figure out something on this flash before I am calling it good. Seems I didn't think this through all the way before I posted this, I got the horse before the cart. I will get back to this once I have a chance to do more testing.

After much testing of the flash and a little recoding of the Safari Flash Program, I have revised the video and all is good now.

Curious if we can further conserve battery power on this by connecting the battery leads to, say, a slaveblaster board, so that's it's not powered up constantly while afield? A day/night circuit, at a minimum, would be handy. Your thoughts?

Ghosthunters, i think it'd be a very useful tool for the Panasonic cameras! ... ;-)
