Excerpt: I was using this flash to photograph water droplet splashes. I used no other light sources besides the flashes and was aiming to freeze the motion of the splash through the flash. The flash was successful at that-- the flash duration is short enough that it freezes the motion without blur. Overall, the flash is easy to use and does its job well. It's great that it comes with a stand, super useful. Also the large range of rotation is nice.
Excerpt: I've been a novice 'photographer' for a while. I love that i've added this to my camera and can finally take some 'professional' pictures. What a difference this flash has made! We also bought one for my dad, who is a photographer and has had his 1970 flash (which he still uses). He is so happy with his new speed light flash. He swore he only needed his old one. Now with the new one, he is a very happy man!!
