Great flash for Panama

Excerpt: I used this flash along with the better beamer to photograph birds in the tropical areas of Panama. I have never taken photos of birds in low light before so I know nothing about flash photography. I was very successful so I am very happy. What don't I like? Well, I hate having a big flash attachment but there is no other way to do it.
Excerpt: I decided to buy this speedlite because of the winter months that we have here, we experience looooong cold winters, and it's just too frigidly cold to go out in the snow and wind to go shoot, so I bought this flash to do indoor photography...and I love it! Works well on camera and off camera as a slave. I have a T5i, and when I use this flash as a slave, the onboard flash goes off, but it does not affect the exposure..
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile
Excerpt: First test shots before I read the manual was way better than the onboard flash on my Canon t3I. Looking forward to using in different situations, fill -light, off camera, bounce at different angle, etc.
Excerpt: Speedlite is right. After struggling through three other cheaper flash units, I bit the bullet and spend the money to get a Speedlite. These are fast. Recharges in seconds. Easy to adjust flash up or down for F/stop compensation. Glad I spent the extra money.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
