I just spent a lot of money on the FL-50 flash for my C-750 and I just ordered my D-70. I was wondering if the FL-50 could be used on the D-70? I am selling my C-750 set up so I can buy lenses for my D-70 but if I can keep my flash I would like to do that. I really love that flash.

Yes and no. Yes, you can use the flash in manual and semi automatic modes (you set up the aperture value manually)(it would also be wise to block the pins on the foot of the FL-50, except for the central one, so you don't get any short circuit) . But it will not function in TTL mode, where the camera communicates with the flash regarding exposure data and flash strength.

Thanks for the reply and the info. But I will sell my FL-50 and get a flash that is compatable with the D-70. I dont want a 400.00 dollar flash ruining a 1000.00 dollar camera. Plus all the TTL and advanced features on the FL-50 is what I enjoy so much. So if they wont work on the D-70 it reasonably useless.

Thanks again.
