Budget Alternative

  • Excerpt: I rarely use a flash so I did not want to spend hundreds on something I would rarely carry or use. Nevertheless, this flash is simple to operate in TTL and manual mode, and it has a lot of power. Also, it is adjustable; view angle, pan direction, and elevation. Not so great is the construction. Cheap plastic, flimsy switch, and plastic mount. But hey, it's a budget flash under [$].
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Nikon compatible flash

  • Excerpt: I take pics for fun, but appreciate quality snaps. The SFD728 synchs with my Nikon digital SLR. The taller flash eliminates red eye and gives me the option to bounce the flash. Recycles quickly. However, it yield too dark an image on Auto. I need to open the aperture .7 to one full stop for proper exposure.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Somewhat Weak

  • Excerpt: This flash is perfect for the little bit of extra light you need. Super easy to use since it's automatic. If you want to have control, don't go with an automatic it doesn't have a screen and adjustments. But absolutely perfect for what I needed!

Great Basic Speed Flash

  • Excerpt: Just picked this up to shoot my first wedding for an aquaintance, and it proved to be a work-horse. The wedding was outdoors at sunset and I wanted to use the dramatic sunsets their location was known for as the back-drop but the on-camera flash would never have cut it. Not wanting to carry my strobes and gear around, I opted for this unit for my Nikon D5100. It produced plenty of light for the fieldwork before, during and after sunset.
  • Pros: Affordable, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Reliable

  • Excerpt: I"m a beginner. This flash is simple and works well for ceiling bounce. So, I'm happy. Its a bit big, so I don't carry it around much. My wish list would include a smaller version of the same, maybe with wireless or a cable so I can create some sidelight.
