Hi all

I am thinking of treating myself to a Canon DSLR. I have an old (non working) T90 Canon and a 300TL Speedlite which still works. I know the FD Lenses wont fit the EOS bodies but can I use the flash with them? If so, will it still be dedicated? I have the off camera sync lead too, wil this still work? Any advice gratefully received

Only on manual I'm afraid...

Set the flash on Hi or Lo and then you can always use the GN divide by distance to set the correponding aperture

-> The older flash can't pre-flash for the E-TTL modes on the newer EOS :idea:
