Excerpt: I got this because I needed a flash I could use on and off camera. This one does that, with some minor restrictions. The TTL metering only works when the flash is in the 90 degree position. If you point it to bounce, it goes manual. The eye (red lens) has to be pointed at the camera in orer to use in as a "slave" unit. Supports trailing and leading curtain functions from my K5. The TTL works really well on camera. The battery door is flimsy, so be really careful.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Powerful Output
Excerpt: Excellent flash for indoor shots using fill flash. Much better than on camera flash. Pretty quick recharge rate, however, the more expensive flash units would be quicker. Battery life so far has been good. Controls seem decent, not great. Easy to use in ttl-auto mode. Not a professional flash but very good for most casual users.
Excerpt: So far I am impressed with how much you get for so little. But with that said you still get what you pay for. For instance after just three days the zoom head jammed and the flash no longer functioned. Although through frustration I found that if you smack the flash on the top or the back of the flash head it unjams. Other than this issue I have been very pleased with this flash.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Inexpensive
Excerpt: I have only had this flash for a few weeks but it seems to work well. It is a budget flash unit, but it is much better than a lot of the other ones out there. I have had no problems with it at all, and it works as advertised. Is cycles faster than my factory flash and gets more flashes per battery change too. Overall I am happy with it.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I bought this flash on a tight budget to get through a photo shoot.Overall the flash worked very well.The synch between flash and camera was very good even in very low light.Cycling time was about 6 sec. with fresh batteries,but dropped considerably as they became weaker.I thought the battery compatment door was very flemsy. I had to be careful for fear that it might break.
