I'm new to photography and to this site. A friend recommended this site, and it seems very cool! I'd appreciate it if anyone had any advice for the following question: I recently got an Olympus OM1 and a few good lenses. I bought a new Vivitar 283 flash for it, but it doesn't seem to be getting a signal from the camera. I tried it with the hot shoe (took the hot shoe off as well and couldn't see any visible problems) and the seperate shutter cord, and neither worked. According to the manuals for the camera and flash, I was using the correct settings for the flash. Any advice? I live in NYC, so if anybody had any recommendations for a place to get the camera serviced (if necessary), I would appreciate that too. Thanks!
