Canon Eos 1d mark 2 Flash question

I have been given an old mobile studio system. The marker is portaflash (sp) which I think is sold by jessops.

Can I use this flash equipment with my Eos

Having done some searching around net land it seems as though they are indeed compatible. I would seek futher confirmation first though as I am not being held responsible for other peoples info if something goes wrong

Just as a side note the general opinion is that there is little adjustment in the flash and in general the light they produce is bright and harsh. It is highly recommended that you use diffusers to hold back and soften the light. I also have to add that I have also seen some good results from people with portaflash systems, so I guess learning the system is the key.

Hope that helps.
