I have a couple of flashes that I used many years ago for TTL flash photography with my N8008 SLR - a Nikon SB-19 (now that's OLD!) and a off-brand zoomhead (Phoenix). Granted, neither of these is a new or high-end flash unit but I'm wondering if they will function in TTL with my new Coolpix 8700?

I know that they don't have all the features and functions - but heck, Nikon didn't exactly create functionality between the CP8700 and their NEW speedlights either!!

I just want to be able to reach out a bit further using TTL flash metering. Seems silly to buy another basic speedlight if one of my old units will work. Both worked fine with the N8008 body.

Thanks for any/all comments.
