Post by: watebo on June 29, 2017, 01:14:09 AM
Does anyone know if there is an adapter that will a!low the use of a made in Japan Vivitar 283 flash with my Sony a330? Thanks.

I think you need something like this

I have a couple that convert a standard ISO mount to a "Minolta Mount".

I would most certainly check first of all if your Vivitar is safe voltage wise on your Sony with adaptor.Many older flashes have higher voltage  than found on modern cameras.You wouldn`t want to fry the sony electronics.
You could always use it off camera with a slave attached triggered by the Minolta flash.
