Vivitar VIVHS1 reviews

Hot Shoe for 285HV Flash is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from works with older 285 flash Fixed my 1978 Vivitar 285 flash hot shoe that had a broken foot. This replacement is a stronger design than the original. Additional plastic supports front of connecting foot (see photo). Requires careful soldering of four small wires. I temporaily removed one solder contact to prevent melting of the surrounding plastic (see photo).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exact OEM replacement This is an OEM Vivitar replacement hot shoe for the 285 and 285HV (mine was the 285). It works perfectly, but does require some soldering skill to connect. Just be sure to pre-solder the wire ends and the contacts before soldering together (otherwise you will need 3 hands).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hot shoe So my son broke off my old hot shoe, and though some people recommend the metal replacement, it can't be used directly on the camera, so I decided to get this, which pretty much is identical to the original one that lasted 30 years, so what the heck. You will need a tiny phillips screw driver to remove the old one, and after you remove the wires (I recommend soldering them off so you retain the full length), you'll need a soldering iron and solder to attach the new shoe. Took a few minutes, but I finally got it. Works like a champ now.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from no I would not purchase another one. I was hoping that this being a replacement piece there would no soldering necessary. There is & unless you are good at soldering I would not recommend you purchase this. If your handy and can solder & need it it's a good piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wish I could get it back in The Day! I had the Vivitar 285 when I was a teen, just learning about photography. As a kid, this flash cost a fortune to me! When the hot shoe broke, I think I must have paid at least $30 to get it fixed. That's all you could do back then, when you didn't live near a major city. I just paid less than $7, and used my nominal soldering skills, to do a BETTER job fixing my latest Vivitar 285!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from SAVE MY FLASH Crash went the light stand & down went the flash... ugh broken.. Not so ugh though, because for next to nothing B&H and Vivitar had the replacement ready. A few tiny screws and a small solder or two & everything is good as new. FANTASTIC- had expected the flash to be a total loss- Works like a charm again. Great product, great solution!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works Perfectly I purchased this hot shoe because I had accidentally damaged the original by hitting it when I turned, several years ago. I had really given up on getting it replaced when I saw it on the B&H site. Unfortunately, the flash still does not work, for other reasons, even though I was able to successfully replace the hot shoe.
