    It seems that ALL Canon DSLRs are safe up to 250 volts, EXCEPT the D30, D60, 10D and 300D, which are only safe up to 6 volts. The film EOSs are safe up to 6 volts, EXCEPT the 1, 1N, 1V and 3, which are all safe up to 250 volts.

    Good stuff Nick! I also found voltage tests for various flashguns on another site and the flash I have, a Cobra 440AF, has a voltage of 3.6V. But altho its safe on the 10D I've been informed on here that it doesnt work on that camera, and I've not tried.

    Hi all . I wanted to use a very old Prinz flasgun on my 5D . Being worried about the voltage I bought a cheap trigger unit . Cost me about £20,is well made and works fine and also gives me the opertunity to place the flash off camera . Rex . P.S. It's branded 'ishoot'

    Be careful. There is a difference between the PC socket and the hotshoe. Read the manual.
