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.
