Dual lighting very handy

Jimages, Inc., B&H Photo
18 February 2015
  • Excerpt: With the still/ movie DSLR capabilities,I'm surprised how few dual lighting units are out there. Canon makes some single LED lights, but this Polaroid unit has 3. The light is soft & even, daylight balanced and proved very handy during a documentary video project.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Slow Recycling

Junk

  • Excerpt: I can't get this thing - for the life of me - to play nice with my 7D. It eats through batteries, it's super noisy, and it take a super long time to charge up for the next flash.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Slow Recycling

Terrific, dual-purpose light for HD SLRs

Jimages, B&H Photo
8 March 2012
  • Excerpt: I had no idea Polaroid even made flashes! As a dedicated flash, this unit works perfectly with my Canon 7D. I love the swivel head for bounce flash plus the built-in mini-eye light and diffuser for the strobe. The real joy is the built-in 5 LED light.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

PL160 Flash for Nikon--Early Impressions

Nalin K, B&H Photo
2 December 2011
  • Excerpt: I notice that the results are really variable and the photos are often overexposed,especially when the subject is against a dark background. I have not yet tried the LED light for video. The contruction quality is fairly mediocre, so longevity might be an issue.

Sinnvolle Ergänzung, kann wirklich viel

Mike Radicke, Amazon
11 May 2013
  • Summary: Der Blitz hatte mich seit mehreren Tagen in den Bann gezogen, es hat wirklich Spass gemacht mit ihm zu Fotografieren, leider ging der Zoom des Blitzes nach 4 Tagen kaputt, vielleicht nur Pech gehabt, aber Amazon hat den Blitz anstandslos zurück genommen.

Buen flash por un buen precio

pedromo, amazon.es
21 June 2012
  • Summary: Buena potencia y muy buena idea el incluir la antorcha led, da buena luz. El precio es muy competitivo para tratarse de un e-TTl. Aunque en las especificaciones no lo pone, lo adquirí para la Panasonic DMC-FZ72 y funciona perfetamente

Baja calidad. No funciona como flash esclavo

andromeda, amazon.es
18 May 2012
  • Summary: Compré este flash para una Sony Nex-7. Funcionaba en la cámara, si bien la función esclava que dice tener no existía. El manual es un sencillo folio doblado. La sensación es de baja calidad. Por el mismo precio lo cambie por un metz sin led para video pero contentísimo con la calidad del nuevo.
