If the camera has a flash shoe, you can get adabtors that go from the shoe to a cord and or connector. Check at a professional photo supply shop for details.

If there is no flash shoe, you can try using a flash with an optical slave to work with the camera's built in flash. But, this process has limitations, is expensive to do at high quality and reliability, and is not always the best way to go. Optical flash shoes can miss at times, and are subjected to reflection problems.

I've used the Quantaray PZ-1 DSZ on my Nikon N80 film camera and had no problems. I would like to use it on my digital Nikon D60.


There is no problem with the trigger voltage, which I assume is your primary concern. You may not get all of the features you would with a Nikon flash, but you should be able to use it with the D60 just as you use it with the N80.

Is the Sigma ES 430 ST compatible with my Nikon D60 or D7000?


Do you mean the EF 430? If so, then yes, it is compatible with the D60 and D7000, at least as far as the flash trigger voltage is concerned. You may not get all the capabilities of more recent Nikon flashes, but it will work.

Will the nikon sb16 flash unit work with the Nikon D60


Yes. The trigger voltage of the SB-16 is well within the safety range of the D60 and other digital cameras. I use mine with my D90 without any problems. However, be aware that the SB-16 is a rather old flash, and will not work in the iTTL mode with the D60.

Metz 45 cl-1 speed light & nikon d60


If the shoe of the flash is compatible with the hot shoe of the camera then yes go for it. Should the flash shoe be different then the flash will still work but with a shoe adapter. Both are TTL so I see no reasons why they won't work. I do know of a friend who uses the Nikon with the same flash but it has the battery pack fitting and uses an adapter on the camera's hot shoe. He does weddings galore and never had a problem even though he carries a spare he has never used it.

Can i use this flash with a nikon d60?


No you must use Nikon compatible flashes with Nikon cameras. Pentax flashes only work on Pentax cameras. There is no adapter to make it work either.

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.
