As a manual flash, yes. Just cover the other proprietary pins and leave the centre trigger pin.

As a TTL flash, no. Canon and Nikon uses different hotshoe and flash metering.

For non-digital TTL, I would think Vivitar 6000AF is good?

A more appropriate similar product for DSLR is Suntax DRF14

How do I set up Vivitar remote for Nikon D5300


Set the camera to one of the two remote modes. The quick-response remote mode fires the camera when you press the button. The delayed remote mode gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back before firing.

See "Remote Control Photography" beginning on page 70 of the manual: http://download3.nikonimglib.com/archive1/nDjd000XOIQF00mktpj7624w9V96/D5300RM_(En)01.pdf . Just pretend you have the Nikon ML-L3.

What adapter do i need to make a vivitar 52MM wide angle lens work with a Nikon D-3000 with a 18-135MM lens?


If you can fit a filter to the front of your lens, you could buy a wide angle adapter like a 0.5, with the screw size that fits your filter screw.
But the wide angle front lenses, were designed for compact camera's and video camera's And although the 18 mm could become like 12 mm, but you will introduce colour fringing, distortion and more , that can't be corrected in normal programs like Lightroom.
I used a wide angle 0,5x (52mm) Hama and a tele 1,5x from cannon, on my video and later on my canon powershot G9, to find I was looking for a DSLR. I never was quiet pleased with the results.

And yes, sometimes you can't go farther back, but then I shoot 2 or 3 pictures.
Now I use a 12 - 24 on my Nikon DSLR. Now I get the pictures I want in a quality that fits.
My 0,5 and 1,5 are somewhere in a box. I payed the same (new) for both as for my Sigma 12-24. With the sigma I do have fun.

I have some old vivtar bayonet style lenses that have been in storage for the last 26 years are they compatible with any of the modern digital cameras


Vivitar makes lenses with a variety of camera mounts, most of which are bayonet style. What modern cameras they may work with depends on the lens mount. If the lenses have a Nikon mount, for example, they'll work with any Nikon DSLR. If they have a Minolta mount, they'll probably work with any Sony DSLR (Sony bought the photography business when Minolta went bankrupt). If the lenses have some other mount then they'll probably work with cameras using the same mount.

Is Vivitar 1900 electronic flash compatible with canon eos 550d


You have to measure the trigger voltage on the pins of the flash with a voltmeter to make sure it is at 8 volts. If it is higher, you will fry the Nikon. Use the center pin and the one at the edge of the shoe to measure the voltage.

Vivitar RC6 - NIK


You need to set the camera's release mode to one of the available remote modes. As a minimum there should be a remote mode which fires the shutter when you push the button on the remote and a delayed remote mode which gives you two seconds to hide the remote behind your back. Since you neglected to specify the model of your Nikon dSLR I can't tell you exactly how to change the release mode. Refer to your camera's manual, or else reply to this post and specify the model.

I have been given a vivitar 70-210 series 1 lens 1:3.5 with a Canon AE1 would the lens work with a DSLR Nikon D3100 - would I need to buy an adaptor ?


No, and no.

The lens will not work on a Nikon camera.

Nikon cameras are deeper than Canon cameras. Even if a Canon lens fit onto a Nikon body, it would not focus at infinity. In order to enable a Canon lens to focus at infinity on a Nikon body, a lens adapter would have to have a negative thickness.

Using vivitar 70-300 lens


Yes and yes. Bear in mind that not all features may work. You probably won't get autofocus or metering with the Nikon D90, for example.

Vivitar 3200 Flashgun and Canon EOS 400D


Using Vivitar 3200A flash gun on a DSLR is risky for the following reason. The trigger voltage of a DSLR at flash hot shoe that takes it to its TTL (through the lens) circuit is less than 10 volts, it is about 6 to 8 volts in the recent DSLRs. The trigger voltage generated by Vivitar 3200A at full charge flashing is around 180 volts (max). That is a fatal dose for a sensitive DSLR TTL circuit. This high voltage flash gun will work endlessly, the only damage is to the TTL flash circuit. When you attach a TTL flash to the DSLR after using Vivitar 3200A for sometime, your TTL flash will not communicate with your camera. It will be just another ordinary flash without any auto functions. There is a Wein adapter that you can fix b/w your cameral hot shoe and the vivitar flash gun that is said to reduce the trigger voltage that passes into the camera. Try it if you get it. Without this gadget it is better not to use non recommended and non TTL flashes on latest DSLRs.
