    Sorry, I feel really bad posting this as it is probably a stupid question. I tried searching but didn't find anything specifically....

    Question: I highly doubt I can use my Nikon SB-400 flash on my new Panasonic G3, am I wrong?

    it won't work because SB400 is using Nikon's proprietary i-ttl. no manual mode.

    I think the SB-400 only does iTTL. The other flashes such as the SB-80DX, SB-800 and SB-900 can do A mode which allows TTL metering if you dial in the (35mm equivalent) focal length and aperture.
