Excerpt: I have been very pleased with this flash since I bought it, it works well on TTL, auto and manual modes. In addition it works well in multi-mode. My only complaints are that you cannot use multi mode with both (or all) flashes off camera. One must be connected to the camera for this function to work. My only other complaint is that in mid-day bright sunlight it has a hard time matching the sun, not quite enough power. Other than that, it seems to be working great!
Excerpt: They got it right. A superb flash. Very reliable and consistent. In my humble opinion, this flash is superior to the top brand flash at a fraction of the cost. I have used this flash in a variety of fast pace situation and to date never had a problem. This is one of the best purchases I'v ever made.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast Recycling, Versatile
Excerpt: There is a manual for this thing, but it doesn't come with the unit. You have to hunt it up from Nissin on line. <br />When I first got the flash, it didn't seem like it was working with my Canon camera at all. Subsequently I've reread the flash manual, reread the camera manual, watched some you tube instruction, and I'm finally beginning to understand the complex dance between camera and flash. When I use this unit correctly, it does beautiful work.
Excerpt: First, I would like to say that for the price, this is a fantastic strobe. I use it mainly for portraits and wedding photography. The top reasons to purchase this flesh are (1) The Price (compared to the cost of the Nikon model, (2) The flash power. This little unit puts out a lot of power, and has no problem lighting distant subjects even if you bounce or diffuse the light source and (3) The menus are simple and easy to navigate.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Powerful Output, Versatile
Excerpt: We got couple of these flashes for my wife who is a professional photographer. She tossed one in a bag for couple of shootings and the shoe mount broke after a month on the first flash. MINOX USA was able to swap out the shoes for cheap. (I think the total bill came out under [$]) and the second time she detached the flash and place it in a well padded bag and the flash she mount start to play afterward.
