Excerpt: It out of the light, well apply to three-dimensional portrait of artistic creation.If you want a stable light, beautiful light, Metz MZ58324N 58 AF-2 Digital Flash, is your best choice.Yes, it is a bit slow.
Excerpt: Love this flash as it betters the Vivitar 5600, Vivitar 383 and Sunpack 611 that I use to own. it powers down to 1/256th in 1/3 increments. I use a Godox Propac PB 820 to provide extended power.
Pros: Output can be electronically adjusted with compensation button
Excerpt: I bought this after my Pentax AF540FGZ malfunctioned for the second time.
Put it through its strides at a friends party and worked great. Worked perfectly with PTTL, with good exposure and color fidelity. Initial impressions is that it is significantly sturdier than the Pentax.
Excerpt: I needed an extra speedlight to complete a wireless 3 light system. I already own the 580EX II and the Metz 58 AF-1, so I am pretty familiar with the differences between both units. The 580EX is definately more rugged and of course it's a Canon !
Excerpt: Flash performed well, as all the reviews have stated. The only dislike was that the recycle time maybe could be better. I was using enelope batteries trying to "paint with light" and the recycle time was approx. 3-4 seconds, not good for painting with light.
