    I couldn't find that model here so I can't tell if the trigger voltage is compatible with that camera. That would be my only concern.

    If it's safe, then you should be able to use that flash, but probably not with any of the camera's fancy TTL flash metering.

    The flash has a TTL setting...

    Well, it just might work with your camera's TTL then. Is it Nikon dedicated?

    I don't know much at all about Nikon (I'm a Canon guy) so I don't know the different versions of TTL and what is compatible. Sorry.
