Item details

Tested Vivitar 285 HV with 1 foot sync cord. The 285 HV is a newer version of the original 285. Lower trigger voltage makes it safe with electronically controlled film and digital cameras. The earlier ones can damage some cameras (particularly Canon EOS) due to trigger voltages higher than 6v.

Like the classic Vivitar 283, this is a powerful (Guide Number 120) flash that works with any standard flash shoe or PC cable connection. Four Auto ranges and (unlike the 283) four Manual settings from Full to 1/16 power. A lot of versatility in a one pound package.

Strobists favorite for high power, light weight, and low cost. I have a fitted case that holds three Vivitars, plus cords, optical triggers, and filters. Multiple off-camera flashes allow creative lighting.
