Thread: Vivitar 285HV still in Singapore?

    Default Vivitar 285HV still in Singapore?

    I've been going around the shops and it seems like the 285HV isn't available anymore.. is it? Would like to get a 3rd set. My first 2 were bought around 5 years ago but the shop is not restocking.

    Chances are most of the old stocks are depleted.

    Stocks can't really be replaced because Vivitar decided to revive the 285HV and jazz it up, and it now costs close to US$300 per unit (according to a remark in strobist).

    can get a 2nd hand nikon flash like SB28. SB80DX instead. as accurate in auto modes (if not more accurate than the 285 HV), more powerful, comes with LCD, recycle faster but smaller.

    Jazz it up? What's there to jazz up? This was a great flash for the price.

    Yeah... very basic flash and simple thyristor auto. I love it though, really value for money with the range.

    Hey I'm interested in this Vivitar 285HV to be used for Lomography, I would love to buy a new one here in SG. Back home it just sells for less than SGD200.00

    I just did not prioritize it back then when I left to get a job here in SG.
