I have used a Cobra 700AF dedicated flashgun with a Canon EOS5, and also a Canon EOS1nHS. The Cobra model was on the scene before the arrival of the Canon EOS3, and the EOS 30.
Does anyone know if I can safely use the Cobra with the EOS3 and the EOS30 ?
I have already checked/searched EPZ before posting this, and there is only 1 reference to the Cobra 700, where a member asks for advice re using the same Cobra with a Canon digital SLR, so that does not help me.

Just tried to offer some advice but the site deemed it was possibly 'SPAM' (uhh!!!)
Google 'Wein' adaptor - and if in doubt, get one and use it.
John Smith who created and ran the Cobra brand in the 80s / 90s made sure all the flash guns (including the 700AF) where safe for use on cameras with low trigger voltage. So it should be fine
Having found that my 430EX will not work with my newly acquired 5D mk II, I thought of using the older Cobra flash from my EOS film days, and it seemed to work. Obviously there is no control of flash from the Camera, and you have to set it up manually.
Question: is a shutter speed of 1/60 appropriate, or should I be looking for something else?
