Quote:Otherwise check with the manufacturer for a truly safe answer.

Have to reinforce this good advice 100%

Normally, a 'trigger voltage' of anything up to 6v is safe for use on a digital camera. Above that figure then I would suggest that it is vital that you contact the gun vendor to have then state (in writing Wink) what their products 'trigger voltage' is. There is a document 'out there in the cloud' which is very useful as a guide. That said, there remains the use of a Wein adaptor which will protect the camera.
