    I have an old Starblitz 3600 DS flash from my SLR days and I am
    wondering if it can be used with my Nikon D50? What would be the
    limitations in functionality? And, where could I find a SD-System base
    unit that would work with my Nikon DSLR?

    Thanks for any information.

  2. Just a quick warning: Old flashes with a high trigger voltage (before
    mid-1980's or so) can "fry" the electronic circuits of newer cameras.

    Others can give you more details, but just don't try it until you are sure.

    I too have a great Starblitz 3600 which now is my fill flash w/umbrella and a slave! So, don't throw it away. It's a great flash.
    Because of the trigger voltage thing, I may have to try a wireless remote trigger from my hot shoe to my outboard flash grip.
