:-)Doyou think this one would work with FZ 10?? :-)

I fond it couple days ago with my opld rangefinder camera, couldn't post camera pictures because my brother lend it to somebody. Bu tthis flash looks powerful and it is, this old thig really works. You have to plug it to the outlet to charge it first and then it's ready to use.

I wouldn't be using it on my fz20 as it'd probably fry it...
You know the voltage of that thing?
it's usually the older the flash is, the higher the voltage is.
your pana can take up to V24 , but it's recommended to stay under V6 ,for the safety of your camera.
Older flashes can go as high as V200 and sometimes even higher.

I meant to say it with irony. I know it would fry my FZ10, but can you imagine the looks of this attached to modern camera LOL.

I use my 283 and accessories with my FZ1s. It works well with the Vivitar slave.

Bobby...where's the FZ1:G I'm surprised the plastic adapter will hold the weight of that lens.

Nooner, I've made some changes since this photo. I went with the metal tube from the gentleman in Japan and replaced the Tcon 17 with the Canon TL-55. The old 283 mounts on a handheld flash holder that mounts to the tripod. I have the different lenses for the flash from wide angle to extreme zoom and all the filters as well. Never throw old camera gear away!-Bobby

If you have a really old 283, make sure that you check the trigger voltage. My 1976 version has a trigger of over 250 volts, which will fry your camera in short order. I know that the newer ones have voltage below the safe limit of 24v.
