    Flimsy: Hot shoe broke within the month

        Comments about Vivitar DF-183 AF Digital Flash For Nikon Cameras:

        Our first comment on receiving the flash was, "Seems flimsy." It is, especially the hot shoe. It cracked within the month and the springs came flying out through the side. Now it doesn't work.
        Called Vivitar. They wanted us to pay shipping to return it. Told them we were not paying shipping on a defective product. They finally agreed to just send a new one. Of course, I don't give the replacement much hope of lasting very long.
