[SOLD] Vivitar 3500 Flash Marketplace Listing

Item for Sale
Vivitar 3500 Flash

Asking Price
US$ 25

Item Description
I've been using this with my K10D, but now use a Vivitar 283 instead. The trigger voltage is 9.4V, same as the Vivitar 283.

The dedicated module is actually for Minolta. The marking "DM/M" is underneath the label "lock >>" that I added. I removed the dedicated pin from the foot. The operation is reversible and take about 10 minutes. I can show you how.

I don't have the manual. But it's easy to figure out. The flash has 3 auto levels (red, blue, orange), full-power (M), and 4 frame reduced-power fast recycle (triangle). The head can bounce and has 3 zoom levels: W (35mm I think), N (50mm) and T (70 mm), plus the "wide panel" (included) for 28mm coverage.

Are you the original owner of the item being sold?
