Great in the right circumstances

  • Excerpt: Great for i-TTL flash control with multiple off-camera flashes. Manual mode is a little more difficult as there is only full stop exposure steps. 1/2 steps should really be the minimum, 1/3 steps would be an even better option. IR control is a bit of a pain when moving the flash from side to side - you need to rotate the flash so the IR receiver is still in a position to receive. Rather tough when it is mounted inside a modifier box.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Manual Mode Only Allows F

Does what it should

  • Excerpt: Functions very well as on camera trigger for off camera flash in those camera bodies not equipped with on camera pop-up flash that can be used as a commander. Haven't tried in bright sun as of yet so can't comment on it's utility there.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Versatile

  • Excerpt: This was my 1st time order from B&H even though I heard of them long time ago. Their prices are very competitive & in fact cheaper than most stores I know of in California. The goods arrived well on time as declared at the time of check out. Condition of goods was great on arrival and the packaging was just superb. I've already decided to use B&H for my future needs.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Works as expected.

  • Excerpt: The main reason I got this product was that the signal flashes from the D600's built-in flash was showing up in my photos (particularly in the eyes or eyeglasses) and it didn't look right. With this product, the issue was solved. It's also a lot easier to program the manual power settings than via the camera body's Commander menus. The reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is that at over $[$], it's not cheap.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: not cheap

  • Excerpt: The SU-800 is light and very easy to use. The only drawbacks so far: 1) uses unusual size batteries (123a); and 2) it doesn´t allow 1/3 steps EV increments, only full steps! So be aware of this before you buy.
  • Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
  • Cons: Full Ev Increments Only, Unusual Battery Size, Unusual Size Battery
