I am new to these forums and to the Canon EOS system, I have just purchased the EOS 1000D and I am very happy with it. My questions are: I have been told that I cannot use my old flash guns that I used on my Canon AE1 on digital cameras as it blows the electronics or something, is this true? I have several cameras from my film days including a Metz 45 CL.
Second, I have the Portaflash Studio Lighting System, again from my film days, would I saftely use these lights with the EOS 1000D.
I am sorry if these questions have been asked before, but like I say, I am new.
