Does any one Know if I am safe to use a Vivitar auto thyristor 2800 speedlight with my D50? the 2800 has a Trigger Voltage of 150 volts. The manual says nothing over 250V, But says nothing about what is acceptable. I think Nikon speed lights are in the 4-12 Volt range. Quite a bit lower than 150! Thanks in advance for "shedding some light on this" for me
