  • Summary: I have one of these extraordinary flashes and truth is unsurpassed. Recently acquired a bridge type camera (Fujifilm HS10) and is doing very well. The only thing critical is the size and weight, but that does not diminish its versatility and power.
  • Pros: Their autonomy in a strenuous work session is hyper-excellent. Even when placed as replacing a light flash, and offers great results.
  • Cons: I believe that only their bulky size and weight is their weak point

  • Summary: I used this for may manual medium format cameras and Nikon digital cameras. Powerful flash unit, and supports older manual focus cameras. Metz verified that the voltage is safe to use with Digital cameras, I've used it with my nikon d1X.
  • Pros: powerful, basic, supports older manual focus cameras, white light.
  • Cons: big size, and cumbersome to set up.

  • Summary: This is my favourite flash unit, I use it with my new EOS Rebel-D. Light is very nice and warm. This one is safe for digital cameras - sync voltage below 7 V (beware ct-1). Swivel and Title head. I'm just lovin to use it - I can live with out E-TTL.
  • Pros: Power ! Manual and program operation, low sync voltage, beauty light, build quality, low price
  • Cons: no partial manual light output

  • Summary: Great flash, especially for wedding photographer or portrait. Requires sacrifices for field work. Eats batteries.
  • Pros: Very bright light (GN 147) and very very white. Much better than cheaper flashes.
  • Cons: Big and heavy. Handle mount design (maybe a plus, may be a minus. Depends on your preference).
