    Vivitar DF-252 reviews

    DF-252 TTL Flash for Nikon Cameras is rated 2.6 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from LOOK ELSEWHERE IF YOU WANT RELIABILITY ! I bought this as a gift for a friend. It seemed to work okay at first when I tested it on her camera, but every time she went to use it she had problems. She's a real novice, so I tended to blame it on her inexperience since I could get it to work if I played with it. And the few times it did work, it ate batteries like crazy. Finally it quit working altogether. It is a couple of years old, but I know for a fact it hasn't been used ten times. Back in the day, I was a Vivitar dealer for over 20 years, and believe me they're not what they used to be.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love it I bought two of these, one for myself and one for my son in law for Christmas. I haven't given it to him yet but I use mine all the time and I love it. It is a bit hard on batteries but no problem, I bought a battery charger and extra batteries so I'm always well stocked. I would recommend this flash to anyone who is looking for added light for their pictures. Thanks for a great find!
