p.1 #1 · p.1 #1 · Canon body/Nikon Flash


I've got a Canon 40D body and there's potential I'll be working with a Nikon shooter in the near future. Can I hook up my 40D body to an SB-28 and SB800 and fire them successfully in manual? I think the SB800 will work but not sure of the SB-28's trigger voltage (don't want to damage the body).

And I presume the same thing would work in reverse? D300 body can use the EX580II's in manual.

Thanks in advance.

The SB-28 should be OK. A handy reference: http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html found in 15 seconds by Googling "SB-28 trigger voltage"

With regard to using the 580exII on the Nikon body: On a Canon body the flash goes into stand-by "sleep" mode after 90 sec., reawakening when the shutter button half pressed or * / AF-On is pressed (if enabled). To prevent the flash from sleeping in the Nikon you'll need to override that. On the 580ex it is done by holding down the mode button for 2 sec. until the M indicator starts to blink. It may have changed on the 580exII so consult your manual in the section on using it in M mode.
