If the battery contacts are dirty (like from a leaking battery). I use a q-tip with water first (maybe a little vinigar). Then wipe with sink cleanser or toothpaste (for the abrasive value). Best of luck! ...if really corroded I use a knife.

Do I need to buy film to use this kind of camera?


Vivitar makes many cameras. Some use 35 mm film and some are electronic. I believe yours is an XM 1K type:
Product description Product Information The Vivitar XM1K is an APS point and shoot film camera, designed to capture photographs with dazzling colors and record the memorable moments of your life. You can click brilliant outdoor photos even in low-light condition aided by the f/4.5 aperture of this Vivitar film camera. Moreover, the Vivitar XM1K point and shoot film camera effectively removes the red pupils from the subject's eyes caused while using the flash, thanks to the red-eye reduction feature. Further more, this Vivitar film camera, supporting autofocus, lets you focus erratically moving objects with precision. What's more, with a four-mode electronic flash, this Vivitar camera lets you choose the flash mode to suit your requirement.

Where is the battery for vivitar v4000s?


The battery compartment is on the bottom of the camera. Put a coin into the slot of the circular cover and unscrew it to open. The camera uses two LR44 alkalines or SR44 silver batteries or equivalent.

No light meter on Vivitar V3800N


It may be that the batteries that came with the camera are dead. Double check the way you have them installed, both cells should have the positive side up as they sit in the cap. It is best to handle button cell batteries on the round edges rather than the flat sides. The battery cap for your camera should have open slots on the sides so you can place the batteries in using those openings

try Kodak ISO, ( ASA), 400 ( DIN 27 Degree ) 35 mm film to start. if you like the results, stick with it. remember the faster the film the higher the grain. the slower the film the finer the grain, sharper enlargments with finer grain.

How do you open te Vivtar V4000?


I have used left/right as if you are holding the camera ready to take pictures.
I have included the instructions to rewind the finished film.

!/ Press and hold the film rewind button button on the right side of the camera base.
2/ Fold out the rewind crank top left of camera and turn it in the direction of the arrow.
3/ Once the pressure eases, the film is completely wound into the cassette.
4/ Lift up the film rewind knob top left of camera and pull it out to open the back cover. Now the film cassette can be taken out.
5/ Do this in a place away from direct sunlight.

Vivitar 2000 with canon xs


Trigger voltage doesn't have anything to do with the power source. Even though you're only giving it 6V (4 1.5V batteries), it ramps it up internally for the photo tube.

Old cameras used a mechanical switch to fire the flash, so the voltage didn't matter.

New cameras, like your XT, have an electronic switch and eventually will burn out, like Anonymous said. They want 6V at the hotshoe. You're giving it 56V... I know it works now, but it'll fry it eventually. You can get a hotshoe adapter that will isolate the voltage from the camera.

Film = no light meter


jackson rook,

the speed of the film may be to high if your camera has dx coding contacts in the film chamber. otherwise---- film in camera or not it has no effect on meter operation. move the advance lever to the right slightly and push down on the shutter release button slightly to turn meter on.
