        Comments about Vivitar DF-293 Bounce Zoom Swivel Flash for Pentax:

        Purchased unit from B&H and it never seemed to work quite right. Thought it was me until it stopped working completely. [...] Sent unit to Vivitar warranty, which is a company called Sakar International in New Jersey. Although they were nice and made repeated promises about a replacement unit, after nearly 3 months of promises I am still without a flash. I will never buy a Vivitar unit again!
