    Vivitar VIV-DF-372-NIK Reviews

    DF-372 Dedicated TTL Flash for Nikon Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works Well I was looking for a flash to use with my Nikon 7100 that would provide more light than the flash built into the camera; include the ability to bounce (with built in reflector card); zoom automatically to match the focal length of the lens in use; and allow me to reduce the power if and when necessary. I plan to use the flash only occasionally, and only for family pictures, so I could not justify the cost of the Nikon unit, which includes many sophisticated features I do not need. I had had satisfactory previous experience with Vivitar Series One equipment, so I chose the DF-372. Bottom line: I am very pleased. It works perfectly and does everything I want an external flash to do. The instruction manual is sparse but adequate.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does not have the features on the box Pros Solid build Nice battery door ETTL worked Great Cons Only swivels 270 degrees I was unable to find High Speed Synch. HSS was also not mentioned in manual. When I calle the help line, all they could do is read the manual to me that I al ready had. Summary: Good build and ETTL worked great. However I really had my heart set on 360 degree swivel and HSS. Thus I am returning it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Impressive Performance I purchased this flash based on previous experience with Vivitar products and the low recycle rate advertised for this unit. I use this flash on my Nikon D750 and it's performance is as advertised. At 1/3rd the cost of a bigger name flash I believe this unit is an excellent bargain. The recycle time is right on and I am especially impressed with the recovery time from a full power flash cycle.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ease of use. I have always used Vivitar Series 1 products. The Vivitar DF 372 flash is the perfect companion for my Nikon D5000. The controls are easy to use, and the functions of this flash unit encompass many shooting situations. It has a powerful guide number and has fast recycling time. I am very happy with this item.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would buy this product again GREAT product at a reasonable price. Works great on my Nikon D40 and D5300. It is a rather large unit compared to my old and now broken and expensive SB-600 Nikon Speedlight. It gets the job done!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great addition needed to upgrade the built-in flash on my Nikon D7100 for a wedding. The Vivitar DF-372 made a huge difference in my photos. The adjustable head worked great and battery life was superb. Thanks B & H for the fast shipping as always.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dont be afraid to make the move to the DF-372. Don't be afraid to make the move to the DF-372. Works better than my old Nikon flash. (4) batteries lasted much longer than expected * The regeneration time is very quick.

    Is this made in China?
    Asked by: Kohinoor
    If my information is correct, Vivitar went bankrupt a while back and the Vivitar brand is now made and sold by another Chinese company called SAKAR. I hope they maintain the reliability of the old Vivitar brand. I still have an old Nikon film camera and my choice of flash for that one was, of course, Vivitar. That, fully manual flash, still works fine, to this day! They don't seem to make them like that anymore. Currently, using a Nikon D90, and looking for a new flash for it, as the Sigma flash I had for it, fried itself.

    Sorry I do not know, I bought this as a Christmas present. You will have to research it on line or contact the Vivitar company if you do not get your answer here.
