I have the flash Yashica CS220 Auto of my old analog camera but I need to know if Can I use it with my Nikon D5100? These flash it is a very good piece. I have a fear of spoiling the camera. I would appreciate any comments. Thanks.

There are a few factors to consider: 1. Warning!!!! If the sync voltage is too high the Yashika Speedlight could destroy the circuitry in the camera voiding the warranty. Make sure that the sync voltage of the Yashika CS220 Auto is well below the 250V maximum on a Nikon DSLR. Nikon Speedlights have a sync voltage of 6V or less. I would not connect a flash to one of my DSLR's that has a sync voltage higher than 6V. The Yashika CS220 Auto is not listed at Photo Strobe Trigger Voltages. If the triggering voltage is safe, the CS 220 Auto should work on your D5100 with the camera set in Manual exposure mode, and the Speedlight in non-TTL Auto flash mode or Manual flash mode. Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!
