Does anybody know if Canon EX Speedlites are compatible with other camera brands whether it's other SLR cameras (Nikon/Minolta?) or prosumer cameras (e.g. Sony F717/F828).

Obviously it's unlikely to have full functionality but would it work simply as an external flash at 50mm?

if i'm not wrong

they will fire no matter what shoe you put it on

just that it'll only function manually

and you can't do e-ttl and all that other crap

but at the end of the day
if you just want it to fire
it will
but set everything manually

you have to set it to expose to your liking at 50mm.

Thanks sequitur. Is there anyone who has actually tried using a Speedlite on a non-Canon camera?
