    Just save up for an SB600. Putting a poor-quality device in your hotshoe could cause a short and damage the camera itself.

    I might stay away from no-name brands like that...but you could certainly get a usable flash that is not a dedicated Nikon flash.

    Save up for a SB-600 or 800. If anything by a "grey" market (direct import) one from B&H and save a few bucks.

    i can 100% garauntee that if you put that on your camera, it would burn up and start smoking right away. i bought three of those for my D50, each one did the same thing. DO NOT BUY THOSE.
