Default Ultra 600 Whitelighting's

I have had these for about 10 or 12 years. Am I going to have a problem with my new 10d once it arrives? :!:

Potentially dangerous to your cameras health, the modern specs usually specify a trigger voltage of 6v or less.

Check Trigger Voltage of Paul C Buff The 600 checks in at 9.3v to 13.6v. So it may work or may toast your camera.

I'd get a Weyn SafeSync just to be safe.

I also have some white lightning 600's. I use them with my Fuji S2 all the time with no problems. The other day I used them with a friend's 10D with no problems. I know he also has some white lightnings - I cant remember if they are 600s but they've been around a while. In fact the only problems I've had is when they are plugged into the same circuit as my Photogenic Powerlight 1500's they sometimes trip the powerlights.

that is why I said potentally, the 600's are only slightly overvoltage, so YMMV. For myself being paranoid, I'd rather be safe and use a 20$ isolator than risk a 1000$ camera.

You could just trigger your white lightnings with a battery operated on camera flash unit. I use an SB800 set to 1/16 power in manual mode. If you don't plug a sync cord into the flash units, they will trigger from the builtin optical slave.

As for getting schematics, I would suggest contacting the manufacturer directly.

They have always been very helpful when I needed something.
