        Comments about Vivitar DF-186 DSLR Flash for Sony Cameras:

        At first use the flash would charge up, but not discharge either from the camera or the test button. It was returned as a defect. Rated 1 as 0 was not an option. I have the same unit in the Nikon flavor and it appears to work OK.

            I ordered this to use as a slave flash for portraits. The unit stopped working the first day that I got it.
