[SOLD] Two Nikon SB-24 flashes and a Vivitar 283

2 Nikon SB-24 flashes: Great for off-camera lighting or can be used on a Pentax body in manual mode. These have bounce, swivel and zoom functions. Guide number of 138. they also have PC sync port or easy triggering. Both of these flashes have Velcro on the heads for “Strobist” work. I used these both on and off camera (Pentax K10d).

One is on good condition with no issues: $65 SOLD!

The second has corrosion on one of the battery door contacts (pictured). Before I use it, I scrape the contact to the bare metal and it runs without issue for the duration of the shoot. $40 SOLD!

Vivitar 283: (Guide number 120) Very good condition with the manual and Vivitar PC cord. Has the original “thyrister” for automatic shooting AND the VP-1 “varipower” module for full manual control from full power down to 1/32. The VP-1 alone cost me $20. *NOTE* This is considered to be a high voltage flash, therefore I would not recommend connecting it directly to a digital camera. $35 SOLD!

Terms: Paypal only (I pay the fees), standard or insured shipping available in the US at the buyers expense/risk. All international shipping will be insured and therefore not cheap. I do my best to keep PM's and such in order. If you go over 24 hours from your PM with interest without making a commitment (not necessarily a payment), I will move down the list of interested parties.

PM sent.....for the Vivitar. Will take at asking, if shipping to Canada is reasonable.

Wish I hadn't missed the SB-24 boat though.
