They are probably compatible in manual mode (if they have such), but based on the reading I've been doing lately, of newer flashes, only the SB-600 and SB-800 are fully compatible with film camera TTL metering.
Something from Metz or Sunpack might be a possibility too. I've been working a lot with my SB-16 lately, it works well, and it has a fill flash tube which is a nice feature, but it's similar in size to an SB-800.
