Please check the trigger voltage.
What, how do I do that, you said!!!!!!!!!?

Here they are:

1. Four fully charged or new batteries into 283.
2. You needs a DVM (Digital Volt Multimeter).
3. Set DVM: DC scale, higher than 10 scale.
4. Black Lead to black DVM and Red Lead to red DVM.
5. Turn ON the Vivitar 283 and wait until light turns Green.
6. Place Black Lead to Outside Silver Contact of the flash.
7. Place Red Lead to Center Silver Contact of the flash.
8. What is the voltage reading? Read the max. V.
9. Anything under 8VDC will be fine.
10. Some versions will be high.

Hope they are helpful to all photographers.

Truly,
Alexander

Hello Nikhil!
It is clear your batteries are low. Recharge the batteries and try again.
If you find the batteries run out fast, that means you have used the batteries for a longer period and they cannot hold the charge much longer. Then it is time to replace the batteries.
In hot climates like in your country the batteries may run out slowly even when not in use.

I have fujifilm finepix s9600 and need the software to download photos. Can i download this from the net


when you connect your camera with the pc the camera will probably appear as a seperate drive on your computer. for example if you have a hard disk C: and a dvd driver named D: check to see if a new external disk appears as E: which will contain the folder of your pictures on your camera.

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.

No the 283 is not compatible with your camera. The 283 is manual only and not TTl. The canon flash is also not compatible with your Olympus. You need an olympus compatible flash.

Vivitar 283 with new Nikon Digital camera


the nikon D80 has a 250 volts safe range and i have the same issue but readin on the internet i learned that yo can now the voltage of your flash with a voltage metter ond the hot soe.

Vivitar 283 has diferent ranges of voltages depending on the year of fabrication so older ones can achieve 300 volts and earlier have 230 volts so the best is to get a vivitar 285hv for about 75dollars or a safe sync for about 55dollars, you can find all on ebay or other brouser the safe sync converts up to 400 volts to a safe 6 volts that are yust the normal voltage for digital flashes.

Buy distilled water.
