Hi Every one,
I am a new to this forum. Please can some one advise me, I have been given a Canon Speed lite 299T by a member of my family, will it do any harm to my Canon 400D camera if I use it. The flash dose work with the camera but I do not want to use it if it is going to do any damage.

With Kind Regards

Hi Rover 45,

A very warm welcome to the CameraLabs forums.

I did this Google search on your behalf to see what I could find out.

One post raised a question about different voltage levels but I get a sense that this is not likely to break anything. You might want to raise that question with Canon support to make sure.

One thing that does seem likely is that the 299T does not support TTL flash metering from the 400D so your exposures may be inconsistent. Sorry. :(
