from various threads it seems that both olympus fl36/50 and sunpak 383 are both ok for fz50. does anyone use any other makes/models with this camera - particularly does anyone use a vivitar 283 ?

regards

mike

The Vivitar 283 will work, but you need to be careful....it was manufactured over many, many years and some of the older models may pack a bigger punch than the cameras' electronics can handle. I don't know the FZ50's voltage capacity, but I'd scan the net and find it andhave any older flash tested in a shopbefore using it.
