Excerpt: The Flash is easy for me to use being new to using a external flash. I used it one night shooing fire ground photography and it got the shot I wanted because the back of the property was dark and there was no lighting. It is easy to apply to the camera and easy to take off and store.
Excerpt: The Vivitar DF-483-CAN was all it was advertised to be. It is solid, does the job it was made for, and was a great value for the cost. I liked the add-on features of a diffuser lens and a light deflector panel, both of which pull out easily from the top. I am a happy customer.
Excerpt: The DF-483 flash was sent to me by Vivitar because I've been having some compatibility issues using the 583 on my Nikon. The brightness would have to be jacked up to 3.0 each time the 583 was turned on to get results worth keeping.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile
Excerpt: Flash is perfect for my needs, I bought it for a family event that everyone wanted me to take pix for. Has plenty of power/range, tilts so you can bounce the light, the built-in diffuser is a little flimsy in that it doesn't stay really flat against the unit, but seemed to work ok.
Excerpt: I'm a novice and had never used a wireless flash before and this flash was very easy to use. It has multiple settings which also makes it easy to get just the right amount of light on your subject. So glad I made this purchase for my first flash.
Excerpt: Im a freelance photographer and got this unit for a slave strobe. It works well as a manual strobe as well as its ttl shooting. The only downside to me is its interface...it is a litte complex to choose your desired settings but once u do it works great!
Excerpt: This flash misfired too often and the E-TTL did not work properly with my T3i. E-TTL would not set past 1/60 sec and I ended up with many overexposed photos. I am exchanging this for a Canon 430 EX II, thanks to B&H excellent customer service.
