    Should work with any camera with sync socket/cord

    Yes, Alien Bees will work. The sync voltage of the bees is designed for digital SLRs, so it has a low voltage of 6v. It's totally safe for use with film cameras. I use mine with a Mamiya M645.

    Again, yes. Do go and find an explanation of guide numbers and how to use them though! One of the hardest things to remember and understand, for some people, is that the f stop you want to use on the camera is decided by the power and distance of your lights to your subject and the distance of the camera to the subject has little or nothing to do with it.
