Sucks! The small flash on my camera is better!
10 February 2011
Summary: I had not needed to take any pictures with a flash because i use my camera mainly for birding. Well, now that it's over a month since I purchased this flash I used it and it totally sucks. The little flash that is on the camera works 100 times better than this thing. I will go to the store and try to get a refund even though it's been over 30 days. I should have tried it immediately!
Summary: The first couple hours of using this flash it worked nicely, but toward the end of the event I noticed a very long recharge time after the flash goes to sleep. I thought this might be a battery issue but even after changing batteries the problem continued. I miss opportunities for several pictures in the time it takes the flash to recharge. On the other hand when it does work, it really does a good job as a fill flash.
