The lever on the left side of the M4 is the frame pre-selector switch, a device first adopted on the DS M3 and continued thereafter. The second flash-synch outlet is for M-type flashbulbs. The synch speed is 1/50" not 1/60". With Vivitar flashes, the PC cord is often a problem: go to your village camera store and invest $10 or so in a 'hot shoe adapter', a device to give your camera a hot shoe. The flash should work fine then. You can, of course, test the flash by using the test button. Marc email@example.com FAX: +540/343-7315 Cha robh bas fir gun ghras fir!
