Quick question.

A friend is getting rid of a Canon Speedlite 430ex. Would this work with my D5000 or would it break something (like, voltage wise)?

Thanks!

I think it would work but I don't know that I would suggest it. The contacts on the shoe are different for each manufacturer.... so you would run the risk of those different contacts potentially causing problems for the flash and/or the camera. Not to mention you wouldn't be able to use ETTL.

used a 580EX Speedlight with a D70 years back (only thing I had that day, made do). As best as I can remember, It WILL trigger the flash (manual flash power), but it threw the camera into frequent error modes requiring a power cycle or possibly even a battery pull. So in other words, EXTREMELY DISCOURAGED!

The only way i could see it working safely is using a hotshoe to PC adapter then syncing the flash and camera vial PC cord.

This sit is usually very helpful.

A photographer friend of mine sent me this for old times sake. Looking at this I suddenly remember why my back hurts these days.

Got the nifty fifty 50mm f1.8 in the mail yesterday (Abes of Maine or actually NJ ) and it's clearly better than the kit lens. Worth the 100 bucks. Great for portraits as you can get tight depth of field.

And I thought I was bad carrying all my gear on my person at a wedding, but you got me topped by a mile! (I didn't exactly have a 400mm 2.8 slung over my shoulder!)

Ill pay for them but you bring them to Florida. I hear there is some good stuff in the north west.

The 28-75 is made by Tamron. Would you suggest otherwise for a $400 lens? with the same range ish?

Tamron or Sigma.... I think its pretty much personal preference between the two. Both are 2.8 I think, so are fast enough. However, not sure how sharp they are @ 2.8
