Good for the price

MAK, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: This flash is good for the price. The first one we received was broken and obviously used. They wouldn't send a new one until we sent the broken one back so that made our shipping time longer. The quality of material is low. I am skeptical of how long it will last.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Recycling

  • Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Min feature instruction

Good Flash, Design needs help

  • Excerpt: I brought this flash for my wife, and while it works fine the on/off switch is constantly being hit while in her photo bag. It's too easily switched on and in a location that makes it easy to do so.

OK flash for the money

Mr Ed 5, B&H Photo
7 November 2011
  • Excerpt: I do a lot of real estate photography indoors, This flash works good if you bounce off a wall or ceiling, or use the difusser otherwise it's very harsh and direct. I also own a Canon ex 480, I use this as a second camera setup and it works but not as nice as the canon but for 1/3 the price it's not bad.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Versatile
  • Cons: Harsh if used directly

It doesn't look pretty but it works

  • Excerpt: Right out of the box, and i noticed the infrared covering was cracked. Reload between bursts could be faster, and it seems to affect the autofocus. If you're shooting in manual mode, she's a great flash.

Terrible

Autumn, B&H Photo
14 September 2011
  • Excerpt: If you want a flash that works... do not buy this flash. I bought it to shoot a wedding and it worked for about 15 shots and that was about the life of the flash. Do yourself a favor, spend the extra money and buy a flash that works.

I would keep looking

Randall, B&H Photo
11 July 2011
  • Excerpt: I was a bit upset after this flash decided to call it quits after day 3 uses. Though when it did work, it did a good job.. the fact that the flash ready will not come on anymore, makes using it impossible. I ordered the recommended batteries, I was nothing but careful, and it still quit working on me. I would also like to add that it is a bit large compared to similar flashes.
  • Pros: Fast Recycling, Lightweight
  • Cons: Not Interchangeable
