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 ;p
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.
