I have a Nikon D50 and would like to use an external flash. I have my own flash now, but it is not a speedlight. The manual says other flashes than speedlights may damage the circuitry. Is that true? Can other flashes be used?

I can't say for certain. However, I have used a Nikon SB-800 for years on various Nikon cameras and not had a single problem at all.
