K10d+older flash+wireless?

is there a way to get an older TTL flash to fire wirelessly with a K10D? I have some cactus triggers on order, but was wondering aboujt it in the interim.

My Nissen flash has wireless capabilities (at least I think thats what the icon means...)

Thanks in advance, ad

which nissin do you have?

I don't think Nissin made any P-TTL flashes, I could be wrong though.

The TTL will be useless to you. You will either have to manually calculate aperture based on guide number and distance from flash to subject or use one of the "auto" modes if your flash has that.
