How to use vivitar zoom thyristor 285 with nikon D80 digital camera


DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE THIS FLASH ON THE CAMERA OR TEHTER BY WIRE. THe voltage will destroy at least the built-in flash function of your camera. either use a radio slave, an optical slave or you can use it on camera if you use a WEIN safe-synch (approx. $70 USD). If you do not have the users guide for the flash, it can be GOOGLED. Search for "VIVITAR 285 users guide"

285, red/green lights blink, whines on start up, but won't fire


Hi Dave,
Try shorting out Center Pin to Outside Metal Contact after the light turned green. This must fire the flash.
If not, could be the flashtube /or trigger are defective.
Do you have a DVM?

Older Vivitar Flash for new Canon SX10


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

Can i use vivitar 285 hv flash with my canon powershot sx10 ?


It is the HV version, yes you can just put it in a color mode so the sensor on the front guesses the out put- it isn't ttl so it won't know what the camera is thinking
