After reading the warnings in my D70's manual, enforcing the use of the SB800 or SB600 flash units and also some negative voltage or too high/low voltage issues I´m afraid to hook my PZ 4000AF (Nikon dedicated) flash to my D70 hotshoe. Has anyone done this previously with disastrous effects on the camera? Also in case it´s safe, would TTL metering still work?

Thanks for your input!:|

I haven't looked at Sunpak, but this same question cropped up a few months back in connection with Metz (Mecablitz) flashes, and there are certain that use a higher voltage and can burn out the electronics of the D70 - or any Nikon come to that. The Metz site gave the serial numbers that couldn't be used.

Having read the Sunpak site http://www.sunpak.com/flash/pz4000af.htmlthey don't mention this problem but I would suggest you contact them to make sure.
