    Hi folks

    I am currently using a Nikon D70, I also have a Hanimex TZ36 Flashgun that I used with a Pentax K1000 before I bought the Nikon. Is it possible to use this flashgun with the Nikon and if so how do I connect it to the Nikon.

    Any information on this would be greatly appreciated.

    Regards

    You need to be careful about using old flash guns on new digital cameras. I know nothing about the Hanimex flashgun. I assume it's the hot shoe type?

    The most important thing to be aware of is the flash trigger voltage. If it's too high for the Nikon then you can cause serious damage to the camera.

    If in doubt don't try it.

    Many thanks Ken, I should have mentioned that the Hamimex is a hammer type flashgun. I'll take your advice and not try it.

    Regards

    Hi,
    I've got the same model flash and was also unsure about using the flash with a new DSLR. My solution was to use a remote radio trigger with the gun. There's no direct connection with the camera so no chance of any shocks to the system. This also gives the added bonus of being able to place the flash wherever you want it. I think the trigger was about 16 from Amazon. I've also got an old slave trigger (with a little rubber suction cup) and I use this to fire another old Hanimex hammer flash so I'm able to use both of my old guns with my new camera ... result!!!
    I hope this helps.

    John

    If you're really up to it, you can make this to trigger your flash?

    I have 2 Metz 45 TC-4's running off this with my Nikon D200!!!!!!

    This is down to triumphV8 (Chris) for his knowledge and advice on this matter, any probs drop him a PM and he will gladly help out.
