Help a flash noob with a few questions!
8 months ago

Just some basic questions for anybody who can help. I get TTL and why it's nice, but can I take a Canon flash and use it manually on any other brand like Pentax, or MFT? Since many flashes are manual when triggered wireless, this wouldn't be an issue.

also, will any wireless radio trigger/receiver work on any flash? Again I'm not concerned with TTL, only with forcing the flash to fire manually. Basically, will a camera such as a GX7's hotshoe work with any hot shoe radio trigger, firing any brand flash in manual mode?
