Has anyone actually used a Nikon SB28 (or similar Nikon flash) or Canon 580EXII flash on an RX100II, without damaging the camera?

I realise the flashes wont talk to the camera but I'm only after manual flash control anyway, old skool stuff.

The SB28 and 580EXII have a locking pin which is lowered as the flash is tightened and I wonder if this will cause a short on the cameras electrical contacts?

The 580EXII also has a metal foot so I also wonder if this has potential to cause shorts?

Thanks in advance

JJ

Clicked into this thread only because I have those two flashes, but not that camera. Out of curiosity I googled the camera and found this thread.

Sounds like a bad idea. That hotshoe is way different than anything from Nikon or Canon.

Thanks. I searched dpreview before posting my question, but obviously not very well.

I'm not sure that the RX100II hot shoe is dramatically different and there's also nothing conclusive in the thread you linked to but I'm not going to jump to any conclusions either. I'll certainly proceed cautiously.

Again, thanks
