Comments about Targus Targus DP-38 Pro Tilt & Swivel Zoom Auto TTL Flash for Nikon Digital TTL, I-TTL & Film Cameras, Guide Number (ISO 100) 45 m / 148 ft:

I bought this because I did not want to spend the money on the Nikon sb-700 or 900 and didn't think there would be that much difference. There is. It does not work very well with the flash functions on the Nikon D90 and the output was inconsistent at best. I ended up buying the sb700 and I love it. I will keep this flash to use as a slave and a back up

 
Works (not perfect everytime)

Comments about Targus Targus DP-38 Pro Tilt & Swivel Zoom Auto TTL Flash for Nikon Digital TTL, I-TTL & Film Cameras, Guide Number (ISO 100) 45 m / 148 ft:

My camera is a Nikon D50 and the DP38 appears to communicate with it fine. Toggling between spot and matrix will switch the flash from i-ttl or i-ttl bl.
Slave works nicely
Zoom zooms, ( noisy but works )
Recycle good
Battery life, good so far
Bounce and swivel nice solid clicks
I have a Promaster 7200, the DP 38 is a lot better, especially exposure.
I like it.
Had it for a short period of time, but impressed so far.
