Not compatible.
Get slave triggers and use them as remote flashes, or buy another film camera.
It seems Vivitar no longer is in the flash business. Get a Sigma or Sunpak digital flash for your SX10

First, if you can view the images, the lcd is not broken. Second, if you get an lcd screen, do you have the technical knowledge and tools to install it?

I have a Vivitar Camera that I bought from a Pawn Shop. The Flash worked fine for the first few months having it. I didn't use it for a while, and once I finally did, I heard 3 pops. After that my flash no...


The 8025 is a very cheap camera....I hope you didn't pay more than $15 at the pawn shop. Your camera has a blown flash tube. The camera could have been dropped in water by the previous owner. You could have bought one at Walmart that would have at least worked a little longer.

Flash not working


Hi,
Only you can make the executive decision if it would be worthwhile to fix the onboard flash.
You can send the camera into Canon and get an estimate on how much it would cost for the repair.
Hope this helps,
Andrew

Canon PowerShot A95 will no longer power up


Here are some simple things to try first for a camera that won't power on. They won't work for every case, but they're worth a try. Pay particular attention to the small contact switches on the battery and flash card doors. Also inspect the battery contact prongs to make sure they haven't been bent to the point that they're not springing the battery to make contact with the battery door.
