Have not had time to use this yet.

  • 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.

Awesome flash...

  • 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.

Greatness

  • Excerpt: I'm a generalist shooter and use 2 of these (both purchased from Adorama) for everything from studio flash to fill flash at outdoor events to slow sync night shots. Hands down a fantastic flash. I use Cowboystudio RF flash triggers without a hitch. My only complaint is not being able to use manual flash mode with triggers (but that's probably a firmware issue with the Pentax camera(s)).

Great Flash / Problem with kit batteries

justhacket, Adorama
12 January 2011
  • Excerpt: This flash is great in every way, but don't buy the kit from Adorama that comes with rechargeable batteries. I spent more from Adorama than I could of on the flash somewhere else because this one also came with rechargeable batteries. However, those batteries are a bit bigger than others and DON'T FIT! Don't buy the kit unless this does not matter to you.
