How do I use this flash as a slave?

You need to set the flash to slave and the same channel as the master. If the flash doesn't have this function it may be able to be fired optically. Set the master flash to low power and set the off camera flash to optical.

As far as I know, every Vivitar flash can be made to fire in manual full power mode. No exceptions. Even the modern full dedicated E-TTL units can fire manual full and fractional power levels.

What is the difference between the flash and continuous lighting, why not using continuous lighting for photography?

Two main reasons flash is used over continuous lighting.

Power. Lighting a scene for minutes uses much more power than lighting it for a fraction of a second. You may have noticed that most continuous lights need to be plugged in to a power supply, while most flash units work with small batteries. It may not make much difference if you're shooting indoors in a studio, but if you're out in the field and have to move around, it can get difficult lugging all that gear around.

Duration. A flash unit provides a very brief flash of light while a continuous unit is, well, continuous. A flash can freeze action much better than just using the camera's shutter. Try it yourself sometime: turn on the lights in the bathroom (and/or bring in your continuous light units) and take some pictures of a dripping faucet. Now turn off the lights and take some flash pictures of the same thing. See the difference?

I cannot seem to get the flash to fire consecutively ,I have changed the batteries for lithium, and yet still one shot to the next shot is at least 7- 10 seconds before the flash will fire again. what to...

Hi windnenergy, It is the recycle of the batteries and, power setting of the flash. Lower power settings will allow us to shoot faster. So, check the power settings, run tests to see how long the flash recycles at lower power settings. You may find you do not need a full flash power shot.

QFlash does not fire

You have a defective PC Cable.

Try this:

Turn on flash and wait until ready.
With PC cable connected to flash only.
Short out center pin to outside of PC Cable, this should fire the flash.
