Hi, I heard that some old flash designed for SLR draw more current and not suitable for DSLR.
I got this flash with me, not sure if I can use it on my KX.

it's the trigger voltage, not current. anyway, you can try to find the info online, but it's not really definitive, so i suggest you measure it yourself or just not risk it. or get one of those wireless triggers since the flash is a manual flash anyway.

is not in the list here, Photo Strobe Trigger Voltages, but the same question been ask before. Flash voltage?

my advice, ditch the flash.
