    I have a minolta XE-1. I would like to use a Vivitar 2800 flash with
    this but have been told that the high trigger voltages in the Vivitar
    may dammage the XE

    Has anyone used this combo. It does work but ny concern is long term
    gradual dammage to the XE trigger contacts or the camera electronics.

    Does anyone know (or know how to find out) the troigger contact
    voltage rating in the Minolta XE.

    That's okay. Go ahead.

    No, there is no problem. The Minolta XE, as any
    manual-focus Minolta camera, will withstand any
    flash strobe trigger voltage.
