I hope it is OK to post this question on this forum, I did not see any others that were more appropriate. Back in the old days when I was shooting film, I loved my Nikon F3 with the Vivitar 283 flash. I would like to mount the 283 in the hot shoe of my D40 but it seems like I heard somewhere that to do so could damage the electronics of the camera . . . something about the voltage in the contact of the flash. I certainly don't want to to risk that unless someone has successful done that without any problems. I am planning on ordering up a Nikon SB 600, but wanted to use an accessory flash until the 600 came in. Any input would be appreciated. Thanks, Jack
