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).
if im not wrong, saw a couple of pieces at Mustafa (the one facing Serangoon Road)...
Sure? Must fast fsat go and grab! Too bad I have the flu now...sigh.
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.
they were around since the 80's, right? or earlier? used to own one of them.
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.
still have ah.. i remember a guy is selling brand new sets..
KM5D Legend soon will end, A700 will rawk my World soon!! :)
