Yeah same here. I was looking at the really old nikon flashes. Everyone says if you want a good old nikon flash get the sb24. Wow I might, they sell for like $40 on craigslist. Only problem. Is the voltage too much for my d50? How can I use this old flash wirelessly?

but if you can find a cheap sb-26, it has one built in.

the sensor fires the flash that it is connected to whenever it senses a flash go off.

Cool the only problem is the voltage. I don't know if it is too high for my d50.
