    Vivitar VIVDF3000N reviews

    DF-3000 Dedicated TTL Flash for Nikon Cameras is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from O.K. for the low price Inexpensive products that meet a modest expectation are always hard to review. The flash is pretty much what I expected - seems fairly insubstantial, but functions mostly as expected. The manual Zoom feature is supposed to boost the effective guide number for long lenses. But I found that it had a pretty modest effect. I find that I have to add about a third of a stop to make flash pix with this flash look adequately exposed. One nice touch, it has a switch to make the flash act as a slave - a handy feature. I would recommend it to a friend who wanted a basic TTL flash for a low price

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash for the price ! The built in flash on my D5200 nikon just wasn't enough for portraits and darker rooms. The Df-3000 lights things up very nicely. There is a lot of features for the money, and with B&H I ordered it and had it the very next day. Great service.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Inexpensive and simple alternative to Nikon The TTL works fine and it is very easy to use. I plan to use it as a backup to my Nikon and as a slave but it will work fine for anyone who needs a simple to use flash. The head moves so you can bounce it off the ceiling or a wall. I gave it 5 stars because it is a good value for the money. If you want to use Nikon's CLS, you will have to invest in a Nikon flash.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from I wouldn't buy it again. Flash is not as powerful as advertised and I was led to believe that it zoomed. But it's worth the low price.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs to be more rugged. - good flash for the money This flash has worked well for me so far. I have used it exclusively as a camera mounted flash on my Nikon D5200. At this point I have used it for approximately 4000 photos both indoors and out and it's vastly superior in strength to the built in flash. I loaned it to my 18 year old daughter who is also an avid photographer and she managed to break the battery door changing batteries. She's careful with her gear, but the plastic tabs that latch the door are fragile. I'm using rubber bands to hold the batteries in now. Even before this incident the flash would randomly over expose about one out of every 200 exposures. It may be my camera sending poor exposure information but I've never had this trouble with the built in speed light. The subject always notices. Wow, what happened with the flash? I was very impressed when I took a group photo of about 30 folks indoors in a poorly lit room. They were oriented in two rows and I was about 20 feet back from the center of the group. Every face was nicely exposed. This flash loves NiMH batteries and I would recommend using them over alkaline. It charges very quickly.
