    Does anyone know what is the permissible Flash-trigger-voltage on a D70.
    I use a Bowens slide copier with trigger voltage about 35 volts, wouls
    that be safe? I have been unable to get any usefull answers from Nikon.

    250v and it's on their web site and in the user manuals.

  3. On page 186 of the U.S. Nikon D70 manual, it states:
    Negative voltages or voltages over 250V applied to the accessory shoe
    could not only prevent normal operation, but damage the sync circuitry
    of the camera or flash.

    If I have the slightest doubt about the trigger voltage for a
    particular piece of gear, I use a Wein safe-sync.

    Thank you very much for the information. The Norwegian manual just says:
    Don't use anything but listed Nikon flashes. I will also check out the
    US Nikon homepage.
