For those who have or have used the Vivitar 285HV as an off-camera flash (or on camera for that matter), I have a question for you.
If you set the little dial in the front to "M" (manual) mode, does the dial on the side have any effect? You know how you can choose ISO and it will give you aperture based on the power (i.e. FULL, 1/2, 1/4, 1/16) on the dial on the side?
Basically, what I am looking for is an answer to this:
With my 430 off-camera (w/ a PW), I put it in manual mode, choose a zoom (I know how to do this on the Vivvy) and then choose a power from 1/1 to 1/64. Is it this simple as well on the Vivvy?
I don't have my camera here and I just got the Vivvy in, this is why I'm asking. otherwise, I'd just go out and test myself
Any input is appreciated!
