    tried liao. the flash fired away.. but dun know if the "TTL" thing working or not. seems like all setting is the same with or without the flash mounted.

    nope, the TTL won't work. you can only use it on manual mode AFAIK.

    thanks all for ur advise. did some seaching on the net.
    concluded that if the flash is not made for the particular camera brand "DO NOT USE" ,cos diferent camera brand use different voltage to trigger flash. if over voltage will burn ur flash shoe. hehe luckily i did not burn mine
    as i tried the flash made for nikon on 300D. blah learned 1 more thing> dun try if u dun know, or u got tons of $$ to spare.
