Excerpt: I have not or will not use this item extensively but the testing out of this item seems to prove its worth. I have no issues with this purchase, which I will have on hand should the need arise.
Excerpt: I started using this compared to my panasonic FL400 becasue it recycles faster and is powerful enough for my sue already. However, there are times when the flash does not adjust the output and it becomes too white. Having said that, I will continue using this becasue it is lighter and aonly uses 2AA batteries.
Excerpt: This is a good quality basic flash and it is certainly a big improvement over the built in unit. For simple flash photography it will do the job just fine. However considering the sophistication of the LX 3 it is a real step down. No bounce or controls and it's expensive for the limited control. But you are locked into the system.
Excerpt: I ordered this flash unit to augment the built-in flash on my new Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF2 digitial camera. The built-in flash is fine for close-ups, but I needed wider coverage to illuminate larger groups or spaces. This little flash unit works great, and it compliments and enhances the features on my Lumix GF2. The quality of construction is also exceptional.
Excerpt: This flash makes a great addition to the LX5 or probably any other Lumix camera in the compact size lineup. It's a good value for what B&H sell it for but I wouldn't say that if paying what most other on-line sites are charging. Having said that, it's very simple and easy to use and the size makes it not much of a bother to bring along just about anywhere.
Excerpt: A small compact flash unit - does the job but has a fixed position (does not tilt) and there are no diffusers that fit on the unit. I made a little flash cozy" out of cheese cloth - not very high tech but it worked great.
