I have a Nikon P7100 Compact and 3 Canon Flashes (2x430ex and 1x580exII)
Could I fire the flashes in manual mode using wireless flash triggers (which I have) safely without frying the flashes or the hotshoe of the camera?
Im just looking for a little confirmation on this before I give it a go!! I appreciate Ettl wont work....I think!!

Yes, you can use wireless trigger. I use Nikon SB flash guns with my Olympus and Canon cameras in manual mode. You're right ETTL will not work.

One advantage with many of the Metz guns is that the shoe is interchangeable. So much easier to use with another camera system.
