    Default Is it safe for my cam?

    Hello guys,

    I have a NIKON SB-16 ,it's a old flash gun but it's still working with my canon 500D ,
    I'm just wondering if it is safe to use it ? heard that it may spoil the Camera. i'm not very sure about it.

    Any Ideals?

    Thanks

    I have a old nikon sb-50 that I use on my canon dslr. So far no problems for me. Just that the flash doesn't lock on the hotshoe so sometimes it doesn't flash because the contact points are loose
