Excerpt: The flash worked ok, very slow though when speed was required. then it exploded in a middle of a photoshoot. The Return time is over so I will have to go through the manufacturer process. Very annoyed. Can't recommend the product.
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile
Excerpt: Great flash for the price. I use it mostly in the manual mode and I'm quite pleased with the performance. I noticed that in TTL Images were underexposed by about 1.5 stops. However, I found this to be true with the Canon 580EXII and I made the adjustment to compensate, so not big issue for me. I prefer shooting manual...I know without a doubt what the results will be, but automatic and TTL are handy under certain situations.
Pros: Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Versatile
