Excerpt: I am giving it a 5 star because I have used someone else's before. I can't wait until I can use mine. I just love the quickness of delivery. I ordered from the parent company and after 2 months they were still unable to send me anything because of backorder. They would send nothing until all products were ready for deliver. Should have gone with Adorama which was my first thought. Thank you adorama.
Excerpt: I bought the AF 540 for my K-200d. Stopped working twice in the first 6 months. Sent in for warranty repair both times. After sitting in a box for 2 years,(I use studio lights 90% of the time) I pulled it out to use in the field. Mounted on my second K-5 and it worked for 5 pictures then fails to charge up. Display works, focus works but no flash. Very dissappointed with this unit. Glad I don't shoot weddings.
Excerpt: Haven't had a great need for a flash unit, the on-camera flash has been sufficient. But I'm finding that the subjects I'm currently shooting require something more versatile with greater output. The AF-540 fills the requirements. Can be hot shoe mounted or positioned off-camera using it's included base or on a light stand. Wired or wireless, as needed.
Excerpt: I used this flash on camera and off, as the main flash and as the additional light source as well. I was so impressed I bought 2. The bounce and swivel head allow me to generate the light in the exact spot I need it. I bounced the flash off a white ceiling with repeated success.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Versatile
