Plastic Foot Ruins This Flash

Jp Dowling, IngotImaging, B&H Photo
13 February 2013
  • Excerpt: I've used this flash for a couple of years, and today I ordered a Canon 580exII to replace it, for one reason: The plastic hotshoe foot. I've snapped two off of this flash by knocking short light stands over (Its companion 580exII has suffered the same fate multiple times without issue due to the metal foot.) Replacing the hotshoe assembly is $, and after a couple of times it becomes not worth it.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: plastic hot shoe

  • Excerpt: I've had this flash for about 2 years and in all other respects, apart from the flimsy battery door, it has served me well. I particularly like how easy it is to change settings & to use wireless mode, etc.
  • Pros: Easy access to settings, wireless mode, HSS etc
  • Cons: Cheap and nasty battery door cover

teurer Blitz mit deutlichen Schwächen

k.d. "k.d.", Amazon
16 April 2007
  • Summary: Kaufargument war für mich, ich wollte ein Blitzgerät haben das auf meine Pentax istDs abgestimmt ist, so daß ich keine besonderen Einstellungen vornehmen muß um gute Ergebnisse zu erhalten. Leider gibt es kein passendes Stabblitzgerät von Pentax und ein Fremdhersteller wollte ich aus oben genannten Grund nicht nehmen. Seit einem halben Jahr habe ich nun das Blitzgerät und bin leider enttäuscht worden.
