Good purchase

BN, Canon
9 February 2011
  • Conclusion: I needed a flash for an event. It was good for close shots and semi distances. Gave me the clear crisp sharp images that I was expecting. Recycle time is fast but not fast enough for the images that I was taking. The flexibility of the flash was okay but I should have saved some time and money by purchasing the 580EX II.
  • Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Fast recycling time

A Little Beast

Richard, Canon
21 December 2009
  • Conclusion: This flash is just perfect for what it is intended to do. I use it with both my G11 and 5D Mark II. It is great for close-up fill-in flash during the day and excellent for short-range flash. I use a Sto-Fen flash diffuser in all uses and it really reduces the harshness of the flash. The only negative is its start time (slow) and recycle time. But, it was know and expected. You can carry it everywhere, even in a shirt pocket.
  • Pros: quiet, Good Exposure performance, Superior build quality
  • Cons: Slow recycling time

good power in small size

JWPC, Canon
16 November 2009
  • Conclusion: I love using this flash with my 5Dmk2 for indoor parties, fill flash outside, etc. Using rechargeable AAs provide a fast recycle time for almost any shooting condition. I like the menu-driven controls (especially the second-curtain sync ability), the tilt-zoom head and its size. Now it's a no-brainer to carry a flash wherever I go-- small enough to put in a shirt or coat pocket and whip out when necessary.
  • Pros: Superior build quality, Good Exposure performance, small form factor
