Power and Flexible

  • Excerpt: My 40 year old Vivatar 285 may be on its last legs and I needed something new. This AF-540 FGZ P-TTL flash was part of a B&H package deal too good to pass up. The flash is powerful and flexible. I don't use flash very often, but when I need it, it needs to be reliable. I'm sure I will be satisfied.

a great flash

  • Excerpt: this is a decided improvement over the af360fgz ( which isn't to bad in its own right). I suppose if I had pick one example of its ability it would be lighting hummingbirds at dusk with a series of good exposures. I tried it out on a k2000, k01, k30, q and the k3. other than dwarfing the q this flash worked well on all of the devices.

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.

  • Excerpt: Wireless, easy to mount, learning curve for the newbie, she will use it mostly for portraits and family photos at events. She bought a cheap one a month ago and it has been sent back. This is the real deal.
