    what do you mean by analog flash?
    The fuji S7000 can use pretty much any non-dedicated shoe mount flash. it would probubly be better to use something newer then older, just because the trigger voltages used to be so much higher then they are now, but since there arnt any AF or other fancy contacts on the mount that might not even be an issue.

    Basically i have two flash guns used for old cameras which i presume are analogue. Just they don't seem to work with my S7000 which would be disappointing!

    You'll more than likely just not have any TTL metering. New cameras and old flashes still work together just fine with the flash output being a completely manual operation. Worse case is that you have to mount the flash off-camera with a hot shoe and cord.
