    DF-372 Dedicated TTL Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 9.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice flash unit. Easy to use and so far it has provided some great photos in difficult lighting situations. Wish there was a more detailed set of instructions for use. I'm just using it on the automatic setting for my Canon 70D.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TTL Flash Large and little heavy TTL Flash but it produces indoor pictures with a good quality if used in a vertical position, easy to use and great value.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from More than I expected for the price I don't use a flash a lot, but this one was is well built and very intuitive to use. I took a few very simple test shots with great result!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from One good and one bad I purchased two of these units. One unit would not power up right out of the box. The other works fine. B&H was great about replacing the defective unit quickly.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the price, it's perfect For an $85 flash, it works great. I'm just now getting into flash photography so this is the perfect entry level speedlite. The reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because of the POWER SAVE MODE - which stays on ALL THE TIME! So after a few minutes of letting the flash sit, it goes to sleep... and the only way to get it up and running again is to walk over and press the button on the flash. This is VERY frustrating when using the flash off-camera. However, you can disable power save in SLAVE MODE.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from NOT COMPATIBLE WITH MENU FUNCTIONS Purchased for Canon 1200D and the menu will not support the flash in anything other than E-TTL II metering. Contacted canon and was told only their brand of flashes are compatible with the custom functions menu and no 3rd party flashes are supported. They said to purchase their flash only and recommended one over four times the price.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the price Just getting back into photography. My first flash used with my Canon AE 1 SLR was a Vivitar 283 which served me well for many years. That's one reason I chose this one, another reason is all the features. I'm not dissatisfied in any way, it's a great flash, any way you look at it. I expect to have it many years to come

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works as advertised. Fine! I don't use a flash much but this one works just fine on my Canon 6D.
