Default Sunpak flash on new Canon 300d?

I have a Sunpak 522D flash that I used on my film SLR (Pentax).

Just made the big jump to DSLR with a new Canon 300D. Is there an adapter
that will work with the Canon Digitals? I see a number of Canon adapters but
can't find any information on digital models.

Or am I forced into buying another flash?

Thanks

622 uses specific modules to adapt to each camera.
I use the nikon module with the S2 pro.

I would guess that there is a Canon module.

522:
A powerful, professional handle mount flash with TTL flash dedication
capability (requires EXT–11 Cord, and appropriate Sunpak dedicated
module). The Auto 555 features bounce and swivel control for cr...eative
lighting effects. A guide number of 150 with ISO 100 film assures ample
power. Auto range extends from 1.6 to 107 ft., over a 7 aperture range.
In addition to TTL and auto capability, the Auto 555 features manual
flash control from full to 1/64 power.



Or am I forced into buying another flash?

Thanks

The 522 according to Sunpak in a conversation I had with them last week
should not be used with the EOS series Canon Cameras. That includes the
300D and 10D. The reason given is that the 522 dumps 600V through the hot
shoe or PC cord to the camera to trigger the flash. The recommendation
given me was to move to the 555 and the EXT 11 cable and dedicated EOS unit.
They are working on a dedicated module for E-TTL flash that should be out
"real soon now"
