Canon7D with f/2.8 300mm II + 2xTC, iso 400, 1/320 - 1/500 f/5.6
These are at the limits of resolution as the kingfisher was quite far away. I was hand holding the light combo with the 300mm + 2xTC. The kingfisher hovered with head dead still, dived and came up with his catch.
I really can't see them harming the camera. AFAIK, I don't think the hotshoe has changed much over the years. I've used my grandpa's old flashes, which I believe are also Sunpaks. Manual control on the flash

This picture was taken on Thursday using a borrowed 1DX and the Canon 24-70 F2.8L II.
If you have the chance (and get permission from the ones running the track, try to get a good spot on the track, in a curve where you both have them leaning over with the knee down, also where you can catch them speeding away.
