The Sunpak PZ 4000 and 5000 were made for film cameras. I have one for my EOS film cameras. It works just fine. I know this series of flashes was not made for the digital cameras. It likely will not harm your camera if the flash is designed for your camera brand. But some functions will not work.
For example, do not use a flash for Minolta on a Nikon.
You risk damaging your cameras electronics or frying the flash.
Get their PZ 20, PZ 30, PZ40 or PZ 42X for your digital camera.

Can i use sunpak auto 30 DX thyristor to nikon d7000?


According to this list the 30DX's trigger voltage is borderline for use with digital cameras. You may be able to use it with no ill effects, or it may fry your camera. It depends on the particular unit.

I would like to use a sunpak 622 super with a sync connect to the hot shoe. Is the voltage too high for my nikon D 70 DSLR My e -mail is ml1089h@stx.rr.com


According to the list at http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html , it's your call. The flash's trigger voltage is right on the border. Depending on the individual camera and flash, it may or may not be safe. Personally, I wouldn't risk it without something like the Wein Safe-Sync in between to buffer the current.

Go to Tocad.com. They distribute the Sunpak units in the USA. I do not recall if you can download a manual there. I wrote them and they sent me a copy for my PZ4000 flash.

Using a vivitar 2800 flash on a nikon d60


The old series Vivitar 2800 flashgun has a very high trigger Voltage, that can damage your D60's circuitry. Even measuring the trigger voltage with a voltmeter is not a solution since you can't rely on the voltmeter to indicate the peak voltage.

Sunpak Auto zoom 3000 thyristor


You can use the Sunpak on a bracket with a "slave trigger" and fire the slave with the Nikon's pop-up flash. I do the same with a SunPak 3600 Auto Zoom. Just remember not to have the red-eye feature operating. Those little slave triggers are only a couple of dollars and I already had few brackets.
