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 flash will not work on camera.


To test everything except the camera, just short the contacts on the Wein protector. If the flash fires, the problem is in your camera, and maybe the protector did not do its job as good as expected.

Good luck

Vivitar 283 charges but fails to flash


I had the same problem with my early Vivitar 283 flash.  I discovered that the thyristor on the trigger board tested as an open circuit. 

Trying to find a replacement for a 30 year old thyristor semi-conductor proved to be fruitless. 

My solution was to purchase a broken, late model Japanese 283 flash off of ebay and transfer the trigger board to my early Japanese model. The late model thyristors could handle more heat.

Problem solved.
