Hi,

I wanna use this flash as a remote flash with 5D or 1D mark II. I did read in some palces where there is a compatibility issue and damage to the Cameras. Anyone here using 285HV with 5D or Mark II cameras. Would be really helpful.

Thanks

I use both 283 and 285 (not an HV model though) with my 350D without any problems, but they both have a trigger voltage below 7V. You should check the triggering voltage of your flash before you use it on your camera. Have a look here:

and here how to measure it:
