Yes. The trigger voltage of the Vivitar 728AF is low enough to be safe. However, you won't get all the capabilities you would with an i-TTL-compatible flash.

How to get vivitar pro 548 series 1 to work on nikon d90


The TTL contacts on the Nikon are different to the Vivitar.
You can put a remote flash trigger in the Vivitar and use the Nikon's built-in flash to trigger the Vivitar flash using the remote flash trigger.

Can I use a Vivitar 2000 with Nikon D90.


NO! The trigger voltage on the 2000 is much too high. It will fry the circuity on the D90.

If you really want to use it, you'll have to use something like a Wein Safe-Sync to isolate the two.

Hi there, i have a Nikon D90, i have just come accross my old Vivitar 4600 flash unit and wondered if i could use it with my D90. Thanks for any help you can give, kind regards Cheryl.


It's your call. The 4600's trigger voltage is right at the upper limit of tolerance for the D90. It's probably safe, but I personally wouldn't risk a $1000 camera to save a $100 on a flash.

You can see the flash trigger voltages list at

Will the Vivitar SI 70-210 mount on my Nikon D90. Will the AF work properly? Thanks


Vivitar makes lenses for a variety of cameras, so a lens for a Canon, for example, will not fit onto a Nikon. Assuming the Vivitar lens has a Nikon mount, then yes, it will mount on the D90 and yes, it will autofocus properly on the D90.

Can you use a vivitar 285 flash with a nikon D90 , if so do they still sell the cord that connects to the camera for off camera flash??


You can use the 285 with the D90, just don't do it without something isolating the two to prevent the trigger voltage from frying the D90. You can use something like the Wein Safe Sync
( http://www.weinproducts.com/safesyncs.htm ) for this.

As for an off-camera cord, you can use something like the Nikon
SC-29 ( http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikonusa/en_US/pd/productID.213505500 )

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 telephoto lense 500mm


Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.

Lense will not work with SLR Nikon D90


This lens is too old for the D90, it has not got the electronics for metering and autofocus.
You can use it manually in M mode but you will have to set the aperture and shutter yourself.
The D90 manual has a section on compatible lenses, page 228 in my version.
This recommends CPU lenses for the D90, type G and D.

Compare the Nikon d80 to the new d90. Can I use all my manual focus lenses from my Nikon film cameras? Also, all my filters and flashes.


All old lenses will work on the D90 the same way they work on the D80. Filters depend on the lens -- they either fit or they don't -- the camera has nothing to do with that. I wouldn't use old flashes on new DSLRs.

There really is no difference between the D80 and the D90 as far as lenses and flashes are concerned.
