Excerpt: I use it attached to a Panasonic ZS7/TZ10. I thought I needed something like this slave flash and after trying it I was sure I needed it. It requires practice and patience to use it properly and not blow out the pictures. It also requires knowledge on how to set up the camera's exposition and aperture settings. I'm happy with the results. Common alkaline batteries last long and recycle time is fast.
Pros: Easy to configure, Powerful
Cons: Comes without a diffuser, Firing to others flash
Excerpt: My Mecablitz 28 CS-2 functions superbly with both my Canon T2i-DSLR and my Canon S90-Point-and-shoot cameras. I usually hand hold or mount on a light stand to get nice lighting. This is an excellent slave. I asked B&H Customer Service about getting extra parts for this flash and they sent them to me free of charge. I am very pleased with the BH Customer Service Department and sincerely appreciative for all of their assistance.
Excerpt: Can use on my Lumix point&shoot or Pentax K20DSLR Easy set-up and no pre-flash issues. Compact & easily attached to tripod mount - I leave it attached to my compact camera and it still fits in original camera bag. Have used it for passport photos, Zoo shots of animals in dark cages, fill flash for people in shaded areas, and my own pets indoors. Researched many slaves and made the best selection for my needs. Wish I hadn't waited so long to purchase.
Excerpt: This is a fantastic solution if your point and shoot does not have a hot shoe. It is a learning flash in that it starts generic in the package and you set it up for your camera. The built in flash will trigger this flash. Having the bracket as part of this flash is very convenient.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: My Fuji F100's built in flash was not powerful enough for some situations. Tried using a slave with my old Metz flash to supplement the F100's flash, but with the F100's preflash, the old Metz and F100 flashes were out-of-sync. Searched for a solution. Eventually found and purchased the Metz 28 CS-2.
Excerpt: A lot of flash for it's size, weight, and price. I've used it for 6 months now. It is a great product for the price. The main problem I have with it is when the pocket camera's flash is strong enough I have to remember to manually shut off the CS-2. If I don't the result is a way over exposed shot and likely a missed opportunity if I had to work fast.
Pros: Affordable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
Cons: Adds a yellow color cast, Doesn't tilt or rotate, Feels cheap
Excerpt: Using this with the Panasonic ZS-7 Travel Zoom and it eliminates the cameras only weak point - wimpy built-in flash. Superb indoor picture results in the Auto mode with camera in aperture preferred setup.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
