Guys
If I want to use a non-swiveling flash (like: vivitar 283/283) on the camera, of course after all those safety precautions, like adding the Wein Safe Sync stuff, etc.
Is there a way to add something so it can swivel, maybe a hotshoe which can rotate left and right or something like that (if it's even exist) ?
Im so use to those recent flash which can rotate/swivel/up-down/etc (550ex/580ex), but want to try to use my older flash.

Thanks Guys

Unless you already have the safe sync, I gotta ask why? For the cost of a safe sync you get a new YN flash that is a safe voltage already.
