Question about Vivitar Cameras
Posted by Anonymous on
Yes. You can use the flash in auto or manual mode by setting the camera to manual shutter speed within the x-sync range and then selecting the aperture prescribed by the flash guide number or the displayed automatic f-stop on the flash. The flash can provide auto exposure with the camera in manual mode, but you need to be aware of the amount of ambient light which will not cause any exposure corrections by the camera in this mode. Another alternative is to select Aperture preferred automatic on the camera and the f-stop shown for the auto flash settings. This will allow the camera to vary the shutter speed but may cause long exposures if the camera is not sensitive to real-time flash readings.

That particular unit is probably not a good choice for the D80 because the trigger voltage (the electricity which flows from the flash through the camera circuits to fire the flash) is 19.5 volts, according to http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html - this could possibly damage your camera electronics.
You don't have to stick with Nikon brand Speedlights, but get a modern flash which says it is I-TTL compatible for Nikon.
