Vello HSA-PVU Reviews
My old strobes haven't annihilated my new camera. So, I'm happy with it.
Stevo- Hot shoe and Vivitar 283 Flash
I bought a couple of these, because i have 2 Vivitar 283. I've used these flashes on my Canon F-1's, and my Hasselblad 500 CM without any problems. I've tested the flash and never had a discharge higher than 5.5 volts. I bought the flashes in the later half of the 80's and I hear that the later ones didn't have a discharge problem, only the year early models, but no one can give you a serial number when when the problem was solved. But I still won't use the 283's on my Canon 5d Mk2, have a canon 430EX2 for it. I bought one of the Vello Flash Triggers and will use it if I attach a 283 on it.
Hoping not to have to buy again.
This is great for the old on camera flash unit's. Haven't tried with studio lights.
I bought two and neither one works.
Works for me
Enables me to use my Vivitar Zoom Thyristor 3500 with my Canon EOS Rebel T6i. Good for the sale price.
Hot Shoe To PC Adapter.
Great service from B&H Photo as always, one of their techs that I chatted with recommend this because I was going to use an older Osram BCS44 studio flash on my Nikon D750. It works very well and I am really glad I got the old Osram flash doing it's job again. Great product and great service.
I have a real variety of older studio strobes with varying trigger voltages. Using this gives me some flexibility in grabbing whatever lights I need for a situation without worrying about frying some modern camera gear.
This unit now allows me to use my old Vivitar flash with my new triggers. They worked great!
