If you haven’t already, read the manual ( it’s amongst this list https://www.butkus.org/chinon/vivitar_flashes/vivitar_flash_units.htm ). In particular read about the various automatic modes ( yellow, red, blue and purple ).

I am using these, to get my readings

Put it in red mode, at f/8 that gives you a range of 1.2m to 9m with 400AsA film.

Whereabouts do you see between 1.2 m and nine? All I can see is F8 and 9 m

page 24 of https://www.cameramanuals.org/flashes_meters/vivitar_283_larger.pdf

Oh Thankyou. I didn’t even know that existed. I wonder with that kind of range, what the chances are that you’ll get the right exposure. Have you worked with this?
