Nikon N90s flash trigger voltage

Discussion in 'Nikon' started by Gisle Hannemyr, Aug 21, 2004.

  1. What is the maximum safe flash trigger voltage for a Nikon N90s?
    (I've an vintage Vivitar 283 measured to 270V I would like to
    use on it.)

    What on earth does this have to do with digital photography?

    Don't do it! You'll fry the camera for sure! Wein make an opto-coupled
    hotshoe adapter that will make your 283 safe for any camera.

  4. Yes. I know - the Wein Safe-Sync. The problem is - I live in Europe,
    and haven't found it for sale on this side of the pond. B&H sells
    it - but want $26.25 to ship to Europe with USPS. I find that a
    bit excessive.

    I've read that all Nikon cameras are safe up to either 250v or 275v. I
    forgot which one.

    Depends how much you love your camera I guess.

  6. Perhaps he has a Kodak DCS410, 420, or 460, based on an n90 body...

    Anyway, I have unwittingly used a flash that measures at 70V with the
    420/N90 with no ill effects.
