Excerpt: I'm still in the beginning stages of learning how to use this speedlite. I have used it mostly to provide the fill light needed in some outdoor portrait photography. I have found as with any flash light that the light is harsh even on a low setting, so I prefer to bounce light and use reflectors. I would recommend purchasing a light stand to use with this as well.
Excerpt: The flash, coupled with a dome diffuser and small softbox, produces wonderful soft/directional lighting. The only issue I have had with the flash is that it does not always fire. I have it tethered to the camera hotshoe via brandnew cable but sometimes it does not fire even when settings are not changed.
