You can try ebay fromtime to time, or a local camera store which may also sell used equip..Or if you want to buy online,, sells both new+used (used items depends on whats on hand at the time)and is a good place to deal with.

I cannot decide between SunPak or the Vivitar DF 200. I'd appreciate opinions from anyone with experience with either.

TD, I have that same bracket for my sunpak. So far I'm happy with it.

Tsims, i've got the Sunpak 380 super and I'm real happy with it. it will light up to 60 feet. I haven't tried it that far yet. the head swivels 90 degrees up and down and turns almost a full 360 degrees, so you can bounce the flash right over your shoulder.

Tsims, I've got a little behind on my use of the new Vivitar DF200 flash. The times I've used it, it performed great. The beauty of it is that it doesn't require a sync cord to operate. When you shoot the flash that came with your camera it senses the flash and sets off its flash a micro second behind. It has 4 settings that will allow it to get all the way out to 102 feet or 31 meters. The bracket it came with is alright but I kinda like TD's bracket better as it would elevate it and even further reduce any chance for red eye. Also like the idea of folding it for storage. Great item TD!! But what is the brand and where can I get one. Terry if money is tight I'd get the sunpak, The DF200 costs around $62.00 from B&H. For some that is a little pricey for a flash. For my use I think I like the ability to set up the flash anywhere in the room and not be tied down to the sync cord. I've owned vivitar flashes before and have always gotten good service from them. I'll post some nighttime shots for everyone soon so they can judge for themselves if it works..

Sorry don`t know Dawg, I just did a search on ebay,I was bidding on 2 brackets at the same time,I think I won the better of the two.The woman I bought it off says it was from Japan

I just did a search on ebay UK, the seller will post worldwide
