    Looking for a Vivitar VP1 Varipower module for my Vivitar 283. Price negotiable.

    I have a fairly new one which I used a few times before my 283 died. I'm located in EU so I guess you can find one nearer to you.

    I've got one in Richmond, VA. Just give me some time to verify it is working properly. I've also got sensor adapter extension cord that lets you mount it or the auto sensor on the hot shoe and bounce the flash freely.

    Checked mine out with a Luna-Pro F. Sadly, while full and half power seem to be just fine, I'm getting full readings all the other settings. But, I also checked with the standard module and am getting similar results with the various auto setting, so it's likely an issue with my 283's circuitry. The upshot is that I can't say for certain whether or not the VP-1 is working. Sorry
