Just need to know if the following flashes can be used with the nikon d 3100 digital slr. 1) vivitar 285 hv 2) Metz 45cl 1


Both flashes have trigger voltages at the high end of the safe range for digital SLRs, according to the list at http://botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html

I wouldn't use either on my Nikon DLSR without something like the Wein Safe Sync:

I dont have any problem with Vivitar Flash.. I am currently a Nikon D3000 user and I need an external flash for shooting in low lights and portraits in my garrage-made studio..I searched ebay and found...


The Vivitar 285 HV is specified to have a trigger voltage of 12V. The Nikon DSLRs are specified to be safe up to 12V. This puts the combination right at the fuzzy point. It should be safe, but if the flash goes a little high while the camera goes a little low, you might run into trouble.

The 285 (no HV) is definitely a no-go.

I am running my 285HV with external 6volt battery pack.sort of this type.

I added 2 standard diodes in series (IN4001 type) and placed inside the dummy battery pack which reduces some voltage and safeguards against wrong polarity.

Can the Vivitar 283 be used safely on Nikon Digital SLR Cameras?


I assume you're asking about the 283, not the DF-283 which is compatible with digital cameras.

As for the 283, yes, if you put an adapter such as the Wein Safe-Sync between the camera and the flash. Under no circumstances should the flash be mounted directly on the camera.
