Saw this thread on DPreview. http://forums.dpreview.com/forums/read.asp?forum=1031&message=13042207 Chuck Westfall, Director/Media & Customer Relationship, Canon USA, advises as follows regarding the flash sync circuit of the EOS Digital Rebel XT (EOS 350D): ***** The EOS Digital Rebel XT uses a modified version of the EOS 20D's shutter unit. Consequently, acceptable trigger circuit voltage for both cameras is the same, i.e., 250 volts. Except for the original Digital Rebel, all current EOS digital SLRs (i.e., EOS-1Ds Mark II, EOS-1D Mark II, EOS 20D and EOS Digital Rebel XT) generate their X- sync signals electronically rather than mechanically. This is why they have higher acceptable trigger circuit voltage ratings than earlier models like the D30, D60, 10D and original Digital Rebel. These older models cannot be modified to achieve a higher trigger circuit voltage rating, since such a modification would require a different shutter mechanism as well as a complete redesign of the supporting circuitry. I didn't see this as a public statement by Chuck, the poster said it was a email reply to him from Chuck. Your review says the XT accepts only 6 volts. There seems to be a lot of confusion on this subject. People on the CDPF(Canon Digital Photography Forum) site are taking the 250 volts as fact too. Could there of been changes post review?
