Is The Canon Speedlite 133D Compatible With EOS M50

"is canon speedlite 133D compatable with eosm50'

Hi Martin,

Thanks for your question about flash compatibility with the Canon EOS 50M!

The 133D was around in the 1970s (for the F series of cameras) and I had a very similar flash, but a non-Canon version. The EOS 50M was released just a few months ago in 2018. That's a 50 year difference. In the world of technology, that's like a difference of centuries.

I don't mean to be so dramatic, but the 133D has a very weak power output and is also slow at recycling, so I don't think it's a good flash that I can recommend, even if it did synchronize properly.

It's likely that it could be used and it might trigger on the M50's hot shoe, but I doubt you'd have any automatic exposure capabilities at all. You'd likely to have to calculate the proper f/stop to set manually on your M50, based on subject distance, each time you used it.

Martin, please let us know how you make out and what direction you go in with your EOS M50 and an external flash.

Good Luck
Bruce
