Great flash for the price

  • 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!
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Versatile

  • 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.

OK product, but no CANON replacement

  • Excerpt: If you can afford it buy a Canon. This was an OK flash for a casual shooter, but I didn't like it as a wedding reception flash.

Great Flash For The Price

  • 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

You do have to baby these flashes

  • 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.

Very Pleased

  • 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.
