Re: I missed that

I have the Alien Bees lights and they say they are safe with any camera as they only use 5 volts. So what is the truth? Why do cameras have a pc sync if you need to attach a hotshoe safe sync to it?

They also make sync voltage regulators that plug into your power pack/ light unit. I would double check what is safe volatge for the S2 but if it is 6V and your units only use 5v then no you wouldn't need the safe sync
