    Ive just got in a load of free photo equipment. Everything is in perfect condition and with all the original packaging and materials. (Will be posted for sale on the buy-sell forum).

    The question is, I just got in a flash, a Vivitar auto 2600. I dont know if this will work with my D90, and I dont want to risk blowing the shoe mount trying to get it to. Ive done some research and found nothing. Does anyone know if this, in theory, will work on my D90 or not?

    Thanks in advance.

    I use the Vivitar 2600-D for my Canon 5D. I originally used it with my old Minolta X-570 film SLR. I also used it with my Canon 300D.

    If it's the same flash, you should be fine. I believe the voltage is about 6v.

    As far as I know, they are not the same flashes. The D has to mean something, and there is an extra word on the front which I cant read from the google thumbnails. What is the voltage limit on the D90? I cant seem to find it on Nikons website..

    All I know is the flash that I have was used on Minolta/Olympic/Pentax and my Canon has a 250V trigger voltage. The trigger voltage should be listed in your manual.

    T Vivitar 2600 has a trigger voltage of 148v (Link). Now I just have to figure out what the D90 is able of taking..but I really doubt its that high. I cant find it in the manual.

    From what I saw online, your D90 is about 250v.

    As soon as I decide if Im selling the flash or not. Do you have any links to attest to that? I cant seem to find anything.

    Nevermind, a quick change of wording and I found the voltage deal.
