Excerpt: bought this flash because I own a Minolta film camera and it has a hot shoe that the flash just slips onto and is no trouble to do so. Don't know about this person who owns Fuji camera, if it doesn't have a hot shoe for a flash he or she is out of luck. flash comes with a booklet or at least mine did that might be helpful. Have no problems using it. When all else fails read the instructions.
Excerpt: I wanted a compact, minimalist flash for use with my non-TTL Leica M6 and M2 (which only will flash sync at 1/50th or longer). The Metz appears to be widely used with these cameras. I have done very little with strobes and wanted something that would make me think about what I was doing. Seems reasonably well made for the price and is very small. Recycle time is maybe five seconds.
Excerpt: This is a great product if you want an easy to use on camera flash option. It gives you 3 settings. M = Full power f/5.6 = half power and f/2.8 low power. The bounce head is handy if you don't want to blast your subject with the flash. Needs to be used with full manual camera settings. It is small and only needs 2 AA batteries. Recycle time is only OK its not too fast but not incredibly slow. I would recommend this item for the price you pay.
Excerpt: The automatic settings work exceedingly well. As long as I'm working within the recommended distances, using this flash as per the instructions in Auto mode works just as well as my EX430II does in TTL mode. It works with my Mamiya 7, my Nikon FE, and both my Canon SLRs. It would only take more range/power to put this flash into a 5-star rating. At its price, though, it's amazingly good.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: Very compact flash with a nice tilting flash head for bounce shooting capabilities. Nice even consistent output. Very light and portable. Very inexpensive for a bounce flash. Perfect for the Canon G7. The only two cons are that it does take a bit of time for the flash to recycle after a full power flash and the construction is not tank-like. It's a bit flimsy. You get what you pay for. Besides those two things, it's great.
Summary: This little item adds another dimension to any good compact or rangefinder camera of almost any brand when noise becomes a problem at ISO 800 or above.Most built-in camera flashes have limited reach so this diminutive model gives double or more strength compared to the built-in. Its perceived weakness of limited functions is also one of its great strengths because you only have to think about a couple of controls and these will meet 90 percent of situations when you are...
Pros: Easy To Pack, Easy to Use, Lightweight, Reliable, Strong Construction
Summary: For its price, its built extremely well, and is powerful for its size. Though it lacks the Guide Number of most bigger flashes, Recycle time is fast. The tilt head functions well, and I find it great for off camera sport photography.
