The flash is great and works very well but I had to refer to the web for a few instructions and tips because the product I purchased did not include instructions with the shipment. I am pretty well versed with these types of camera accessories so it was no big deal. However, if I were a beginner, I would have had a lot of trouble using this item.

An instruction manual is always nice to have.

The cover of the batteries does not make good contact with the batteries so you have to press the cover to make contact. After pressing the cover to make contact several times to be able to use the flash the cover broke... so I was able to use it about 4 times before it broke. Reading other reviews all over the Internet I found out this is a problems this flash has. So unless you want to hold the battery cover of the flash while taking pictures I do not recommend you buy this product. Sadly I will be out of the country too long to return the product.

this product is not even worth its cheap price. there are issues with the flash not going off when the shutter button is released. do not bother purchasing or even consider this product. horrible piece of machinery.

For the price, this is a great little flash. I have had a lot of fun with it, and will likely get a higher quality nikon flash eventually, but at
less than 30 bucks, its a deal. Slave mode works without fail, at least over past week of testing, also has a test button for "light painting" during
long exposure. A little plastic and won;t last forever, but for the price who cares

Garbage. I have used and trusted Vivitar products for over 40 years... I can't believe they put their name on this. Out of the box it does not work... flash charges, but can't get it to flash on my Nikon DSLR. Flimsy mount, battery cover loose, and poor fitting.. bounce flash mechanism does not hold in-place, it keeps folding down... like I said, garbage.

I would not buy or recommend this flash to anyone, even on an extreme budget.. ever.

This product is junk. Extremely poor quality and doesn't work. I got one of these and all at a sudden it stopped working for no reason. I contacted the seller and they sent me another unit. I took about 30 pictures while calibrating the unit with the camera settings and then it stopped working. Replaced the batteries with brand new ones, and... nothing! It doesn't even fire anymore. No matter what I try, it just won't fire. DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT if you plan on using it for more than 30 shots.

I bought it as a cheap way to add one more flash for a back light. The first time it worked pretty well and only misfired once or twice. The setting controls are really not user friendly as there is an ISO, F/stop setting and a feet/meter setting, but there is no indicator line to even let you know which one you are using --it seems frivolous anyway to have these settings on such a cheap flash as a simple output power switch would suffice.
After the first use I went to use it again: I turned it on, heard the power up sound and got the green ready light, but it has not fired since. The slave mode doesn't fire it, the test button doesn't fire it and even putting it on the camera hot shoe doesn't fire it. And the power up sound has totally stopped as well, but the green ready indicator still shines bright.
I knew it would be a cheap flash, but I thought that I would at least get a few uses from it, but one use and dead is pathetic. I've hear of disposable cameras but disposable flash heads?!?!?!?

Well let me first apologise to the company for not removing some negative remarks i left a while ago concerning late arrival of this product. It did eventually arrive and I guess it was the fdault of the Postal Service and not their's.

For the amateur photographer like me who really does not want to invest too big at this time the product is ok. Initially it didnt work at all and the people at the company called me twice long distance to sort that out. They offered a new one right away. Luckily I doodled with it a bit and found the problem. Which brings me to the main fault. It holds 4 AA size batteries but the cover for the compartment is very flimsey. In order to get it to work you have to squeeze the cover inwards so that the poles on the batteries make proper contact with the metal parts on the inside of the cover.

I eventually decided not to send it back an jus use it as is for the few times i may need it. I kinda think it borders on useless but for the price what do you really expect? GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE THOUGH
