    eeehh well will it work? yeah most likely.

    however chances are it won't take any TTL (i-TTL or some **** they have now) readings so you'll probably have to use it mostly manually.

    however don't hold me to that. i'm not 100% sure

    edit:i didn't realize you edited the first post, no a film flash will not work on a digital camera, it will fry your camera the voltage is so high.

    well if you looking for a general all-around flash check out the Vivitar 285HV, it's highly raved about
