I'm new to Nikon and new to DSLRs. I've a background in film (35mm and medium format, Pentax K1000, MX, LX, ME Super, 6x7; Fuji GA645zi, etc, etc) and digicam (Fuji S5000).
I just got the D50 and I'm very happy with it. I wanted to know if I can use my Sunpak auto383 super on the D50. I know I'll lose ttl, but I want to use it as an auto flash or a manual flash. Basically I worry about its trigger voltage.
Somebody knows if it's safe or not?
Thanks in advance

Yes, you won't be able to use TTL flash metering. However; auto-flash, or manual, will work fine.
According to here: http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html the measured voltage ranges from 3.74-10.28v. And according to here: http://www.dcviews.com/reviews/Nikon-D70/Nikon-D70-review.htm the D70 can handle 240v (I don't know if I'd like to put over 12v through the hot-shoe though, let alone 240v).
