Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Will this work with a Sony A-290 without adapter?
SUNIL K  If it is SLR body - it might work. I am not sure.
MICHAEL K  Has anyone been able to get this Flash to work on any Sony DSLR Camera ??
Shopper  Will this flash work on Sony NEX-7?
MICHAEL K  I purchased this flash for a Sony Alpha A77, it did not work. I sent the flash back for a replacement thinking the flash was defective. The new flash also did not work with the Sony Alpha A77, I then tested the flash on a Sony A100 and a Sony A900 and it didn’t work on either one of them. Vivitar is not clear about what DSLR Sony’s this flash will work with and Vivitar tech support was no help at all. From my experience I would steer clear of this flash if I were you. Best of luck
