Great flash

Box 211, B&H Photo
26 May 2015
  • Excerpt: This is very easy to use, completely automatic and provides great results. It's lightweight and recycles very quickly. The only thing I regret is that it has no terminal for using a cable, so you can only use it with a hot shoe.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight

  • Excerpt: This flash can perform very well with little concern about operation. Be aware though, there is no "off camera terminal", which means it must sit in the shoe and has no terminal to connect a flash cable to it.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Powerful Output

Good match for Leica V Lux

  • Excerpt: I chart with B&H and confirmed the item is made in Germany, (I had a really bad experience with a China made Metz) when the item arrived, there are no marking of where the product was made. But the product is working fine with my V-Lux, it is much stronger than the camera build in flash.

  • Excerpt: I have not had that much time to play with the unit at the moment, but the little I have had, it has proven to work very well, and for the price, I definitely cannot complain.

  • Pros: Attach Securely, Good Color Value, Powerful

Works fantastic so far

  • Excerpt: Works great with my Panasonic Lumix G2. Because it is my first flash and just recieved it, I cannot comment on this product much, but it seems to recharge fast (1-2 sec.). I agree with the negative comments about the battery compartment. Just be careful with it and secure it tightly.
  • Cons: Flimsy
