Nice, compact flash

  • Excerpt: Good size and power for a compact camera, I'm using it on an EPL-2 and it's fine so far. It's annoying to have to remove the EVF, tho. I agree with the complaints and warnings about the battery cover. And what's up with that locking thingie on the hot shoe?
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Battery cover, Hot shoe lock

Good, But Not Ideal

Steve, B&H Photo
5 January 2012
  • Excerpt: Used with Panasonic FZ-150. Metz website listed this unit as compatible. The good news is that exposures are top rate and flash is easy to use. Also I purchased it on sale for a very reasonable price. Infrared focusing assist on the flash unit does not work. Fortunately the assist built into the camera does. The battery cover is flimsy and difficult to open. I anticipate it will break before too long. (In fact the 1st unit I received had a defective battery cover.
  • Pros: Basic operation is great
  • Cons: Battery Cover, Focus assist

First impressions - entry level flashgun

Dave, WEX

  • Summary: I have used this product only a few times, linked to my Canon 500D. I use 4 x 2700mAh AA batteries and have found it fires once or twice only on a full charge.Also, the camera menu ('external flash setting') doesn't seem to recognise this flash?I'm reserving judgement because I haven't used it enough yet, and battery output improves, apparently, with subsequent charges.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Simple Controls
  • Cons: Fiddly battery cage, Low battery life

Rien de Bruijn, cameranu.nl

  • Excerpt: Vergeleken met de grotere types Metz flitsers afwijkend. Zoombeweging met de hand, niet zo handig. Duidelijk belichtingsverschil bij uittrekken flitskop. Al met al handig flitsertje om er bij te hebben, bijvoorbeeld op vakantie enz.
  • Pros: Klein, Lichtgewicht
  • Cons: Uittrekken flitskop bij zoomen

Blitzt halt.

Fischkopf, Amazon
7 April 2014
  • Summary: Habe mir diesen Blitz nach langem Abwägen zwischen teuer und Sonyprodukt oder anderen Günstigeren Produkten für diesen Blitz entschieden. Nach erstem Benutzen, war ich total begeistert. Die einzige Komplikation bestand daran die Batterien in das recht eigenartig konzipierte Batteriefach einzulegen. Dann die ersten Fotos: Bei frischen Batterien lädt der Blitz schnell genug um häufig Fotos zu machen. Serienaufnahmen gelingen mit diesem Blitz nicht.

Blitzy Blitzy

  • Summary: Also da ich noch keine große ahnung von Blitzen habe, habe ich diesen Blitz zum spielen gekauft. Er tut sein übriges.... aber nach meinem Gefühl her ist der Blitz etwas zu heavy. Kaum bis nicht einstellbar.... Zwar macht er weiter entfernungen mit. Aber leider einfach oft nur fade und große Lichtbrocken.... Kann aber auch an mir liegen :) An sich tut er es aber gut..... mich stört nur der Batterie betrieb.... Was ich aber beim Kauf überlesen habe. Daher meine schuld....
