    My wife has an old AE-1 and an automatic flash that she bought for it a
    long time ago. Can I use it on my D70 in either automatic or manual
    mode? I was planning to just try it out but was told that the camera
    might be damaged.

    The damage would be from excessive trigger voltage. There is a website
    that may help you... http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html

    Find the flash... check the voltage compared to the D70.

    If there is no problem, the flash will work in manual mode, if nothing
    else. Probably nothing else, depending on the flash... (G)
