Excerpt: I use it as a back-up flash for my main flash when working with my DSLR cameras (Pentax & Canon). It works very well for close-up shots of flowers in day light and in indoor shots of close objects. If used as indirect flsh it requires white ceiling no further than 6 feet while the object should be no more than 8 feet, if the camera works in a fixed aperture mode. A great deal for the weight to carry. The batteries last longer if there is more time between flashes.
Excerpt: My first impression of this flash was that it is good. I like the compact size and tried all the features before writing this review. I left it on and watched it power itself down. My Sony a230 recognized it and the low light red light worked. I still would not write a review until I used it and my daughter's Christmas program was this Friday. I liked being able to see the flash charge in my viewfinder.
Excerpt: I bought it to use for this fashion show at my school, the practice before the actual show I took it with me so I could know how to use it. It worked good but it is not made for high usage, it recycles fast but it does not fully charge back, pictures will come out pitch black if you use it too fast.
Excerpt: This flash works automatically, which is a nice feature to have when working at events. Although, I found that some shots were too bright. I can't depend on the auto flash because of that. It is still better than just using the standard flash that comes with the camera I have.
