If those are the actual triggering figures you're getting from your unit, youl'd be fine.

I've been triggering with up to 10-14V on my 10D for over a year with no problems.


Editing welcome :D

If you're below 6 volts you should be on the safe side.

If this is a valid test reading from YOUR flash using a voltage meter, you're good to go. If you're just going off a list like botzilla, you may or may not be ok. Best to test it yourself first.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)

I've got a 283 also but there ain't no way I'm gonna hook it to the 20D. I use it off camera with a ebay trigger.
