580 ExII on Nikon D300 body ?

Hello everybody. I have a question. Until last week I had a canon 40D with a 580 EXII flash. I have make an upgrade to Nikon D300 body. Do you know if the 580 is compatible with the D300 ? I don`t know if I had to sell my 580 or to keep it. Thank you, and excuse me for my bad english.

No, sorry, the Canon Speedlites are not compatible with Nikon cameras except in full manual mode which is rather a waste. You'll need to buy a Nikon flash or a third-party make that is compatible.

And welcome to Pixalo!

Most flashguns should work with any camera, but you will loose all the auto things that camera and same make flashguns are good at, you will find that you get the full power of the flash going off so you need to control this by putting a white cloth over the flash head to control the power, but If I were you I would start saving for a Nikon flash gun it would be easier to control.
