There is no customer service after the 1 year warranty.

The Speedlite still works after a couple of years and this Vivatar only worked for three months.

Save yourself the trouble, and go with a different flash.

Limited in what I could spend, I found many of the external flash units to be just waaaaaay overpriced for my wallet. I recently purchased the Canon PowerShot SX20IS camera with the 20x zoom. The flip-up flash is okay, but limited in what it can do without ruining portrait shots and indoor scenes. Canon's on-line store wanted upwards of $300 and up for Speedlights that don't have the features on this proven unit. I paid just under $100 and got free shipping. The head swivels from side to side, up and down and zooms out to accomodate a wide array of lighting situations. I added a $15 diffuser to soften the light and I was in business. I'm very pleased with the DF-283 (also available for other leading camera makes) and it does what I WANT. Are there better units? Of course! I'm not a professional photographer and see no logical reason to spend more on a flash that could easily exceed what I paid for the freakin' camera!

I am not a professional photographer, not even close, however I take many many photos of my little one indoors. I also got talked into shooting a friend's wedding, and I knew my camera (Canon SX10 IS) does not perform well in low light conditions, and I wasn't about to pay a ridiculous amount of money for a hot shoe flash. This flash saved my bacon, and at a price that was more than worth it. It did everything I needed it to...it swiveled, and I could bounce the flash. It produced a fairly natural light considering the conditions. I took off a star, really only half a star, because the thing looks ridiculously big on a camera, and is quite heavy. Still, I'm very happy with it and at the price it's a steal.

It was my first wedding photography job ever and I was excited! I carefully looked into different flashes and finally ordered this one. At first I was delighted with my purchase and used it with pride. But then disaster struck. Halfway through the wedding, as I was taking family portraits to be exact, the flash stopped working. It did not break nor did the batteries die, it just stopped working. Frustrated, I took the flash off my camera and hoped it would work later. I didn't. I had to do my best with just my camera and I wasn't happy with how the pictures turned out.

So I returned it promptly and recieved a new flash, this same one again, hoping the for better results.

I used it a few times, and I was satisfied that it worked. BUT then once again, I had a family photoshoot and right before I left I tested the flash out to get it ready and it didn't work. At all. AT ALL!

Infuriated, I took the flash off and vowed never to buy this product again. I'm going go with something that actually works next time.

Save yourself the trouble, and go with a different flash.

The End.

When I purchased this product, it was because of the price compared to the Canon speedlite. I have two Canon camera and thought a could save a few bucks. The Speedlite still works after a couple of years and this Vivatar only worked for three months. I would not recommend.

I bought this product in january and it came without the laser focusing thing. after 2 weeks the flash stoped working. The store said it's the manufacturer's waranty so I called and send it back to vivitar. it's been over 2 months since I'm waiting for the repaired or new flash to come. i'm calling them 2-3 times a week and I get the same response... in a couple of days.
the flash looks and feels cheep and the only advantage is that it swivels.
i wouldn't recomand this product to enyone.
