    Hi

    I have recently dug out a couple of old flashguns which I used to use with my old Yashica FXD, I read somewhere that some old flashguns can damage new Digital cameras, My new camera is a Fuji 9500, both cameras have a hot shoe, but I would say they are "non-dedicated" as they only have the 2 contacts. Does anybody know whether it would be OK to use these flashguns on my new camera, I don't want to damage it.

    Regards
    TonyLD

    It all depends on the trigger voltage of the flash.
    Have a look at the link I've posted for previous posts on the subject.

    Thanks Doug
    Using your link I have found out how to measure the trigger voltage, and a search on Fujifilm.co.uk has revealed that I need a trigger voltage of 400 or less. I am off now to dig out my old Multimeter.
