Old Flash for 7D
Dec 5, 2007

All -

I do very little flash work ... maybe 1-2 photo efforts per year. Since I acquired my 7D, I've used the pop-up on the few times I have needed a flash. Now I may have to do a more extensive evening shoot. I have an old Maxxum 2800AF flash from my film days ... I have seen one website that says it is not compatible with the 7D (not suprising given that the flash is from the mid-80s). The 7D manual does not list this flash as compatible, but does not say it won't work either.

So ... how did K-M define incompatible? Is it attach the flash and blow both items up? Or is ther some functionality, but with limits?
