Hi all

It must be my lucky day. While searching for a flash for my camera
i came apon our local Kodak store having a 90% off(?!?!) going under sale.:shock::shock::shock:
At this sale i picked up a Vivitar DF200.
I have no experence using slave flashes and was wondering is there any trick to setting it up and using it, as up to this point i cant get it to work??

Wombat,

How much did you pay for it? I got mine on ebay for 47 + 10 USD shipping (new with warranty).

Wow, is that just local to your place? That's an awesome deal. I am actually in the market to buy that flash for my fz1v2.

The sale was in Perth, but its over now, it was one of those blink and you'll miss it sale, the 90% off sale lasted one day.It wasnt advertised, i just stumbled upon it while shopping for a Birthday present.
Im still kicking myself for not getting a spare couple of flashes:evil:

WOMBAT.

Well, you were very lucky. Does anybody know where to get this one cheaper, so far I have only found it for 68.90 from Adorama through Amazon.com

Amazing... you really are lucky! Excellent flash, imo. $8.00 US??? You should have bought a bunch and sold on eBay.

Yeah, that's what I was telling him Nick. I searched for your post in this forum and I was planning on buying a FZ10/20, but I just love the IR cappabilities and size of the FZ1, besides I don't print bigger than 8X10. So, I'm improving the capabilities of my trusty FZ1v2 that I have to admit falls short indors. I am lookinf for this flas and maybe a diffuser, but compare the 68 dollars to the $8!!! wow what a deal...
