Hi everyone

I have an F501 and have just purchased a used F80D for my son. I also have a digital OLY C-5060WZ together with its associated FL-50 flash. I had been using a Vivitar 728AF/Ni with my F501 but unfortunately the Vivitar has just died.

Has anyone here used the FL-50 (has a GN of 164ft/50m at ISO 100) with their Nikons, especially F501 or F80? Is there any danger of damaging the camera? My search on the web has not found anything useful.

I guess TTL will not work but if it is safe, I should want to use it on manual mode.

Any info or guidance will be much appreciated.
