4 Star Review   By TRDRollaGTS on Adorama - Apr 17, 2012   

I purchased this as a way to learn how to utilize hotshoe flash. I've been pleased with the results. I've since purchased a Nikon flash but still apprciate the ability to use the Vivitar flash in conjuction with the Nikon.

5 Star Review   By Art Jr on Adorama - Sep 26, 2011   

So far I am very happy with this flash. It performs as required and takes the bumbs and rough handling I give it. Plenty of light for small studio and macro work. Fires consistently with my Nikon.

A reasonable addition as a slave off camera or as a stand alone on camera flash.

3 Star Review   By ArtyG on Adorama - Mar 28, 2010   

I have been using Vivitar 283 & 285's since about 1974 or so. I have mounted them on light stands, fired them with slaves, radio syncs and even a neat little Vivitar combo slave/hot shoe you could mount anywhere. They were tough, well designed, durable, v

Works like a charm.
4 Star Review   By TravelTom on Adorama - Feb 7, 2010   

When I found that Vivitar made a flash that worked on my digital Nikon I knew it was the one for me. I have been using Vivitar flashes for over 30 years both professionally and personally. My 1st was an original 283. This new Vivitar is so easy to use com

Great Flash
5 Star Review   By roytmat on Adorama - Jan 11, 2010   

This unit was purchased as an "add on" to two Nikon SB-800s. It's a terrific slave when using CLS system at a very reasonable price.

Decent flash for the price
3 Star Review   By Big Jake on Adorama - Aug 20, 2009   

Makes a good backup flash or a second fill flash for those who can't afford two SB-900's. Recycle rate is not too bad for a flash in this price range. Also, be aware that this is quite a large flash unit that is almost as big as the Nikon SB-900.
