    Be careful trying to use it on a new camera. Older flashes can send high voltage back through the trigger circuit and potentially damage cameras, and disable the hotshoe circuit. There are adapters which will prevent this, or you could use it with a wireless trigger, but an off-brand flash like that is probably not worth messing with.
    There's good info in general about this problem here: http://photo.stackexchange.com/questions/27283/how-to-use-old-flash-units-with-digital-slr

    Not much... maybe $5-10, at most.
