Topic: Vivitar 283 age?
Do any of you folks know how to determine the age of a Vivitar 283 flash given the serial number? I know it's relatively easy for Vivitar lenses. I just bought a used one, and the seller knew nothing about its age. Since they made this flash for 30 years, I'm curious. My 283 is made in China and has s/n 8042077. There's an old price tag on it (maybe original, maybe not) that reads $69. FWIW, I measured the trigger voltage at 9.4V.
