Nice, inexpensive flash, but....

B&B-Rich, Adorama

  • Excerpt: ...but you get what you pay for.As a straight on-camera flash, this unit does a very good job. The problem I am having is as soon as I swivel or tilt the head into bounce mode, the D3100 no longer meters properly and I am forced to go into manual and bracket into the proper exposure. Inconvenience for staged shots, not useful for active shots.I have replaced it with an SB800, which properly meters bounce conditions, and will be using the EF-610 only as an off-camera fill...
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output
  • Cons: Bounce Compromise

Good Light, Just Not Right

NoFadesPhotoGal, Adorama

  • Excerpt: This ETTL flash works alright for semi-pro stuff, and portraits. However, the recycling time and bright red light for focusing really isn't great at weddings. No one has said anything to me during a wedding, thank God, but I've noticed the red stripes from the focus laser and the LOUD, slow recycling.I bought this because honestly, I'm a new business owner trying to keep costs down and couldn't afford the Canon brand name 580 II flash.
  • Pros: Durable, Powerful Output, Versatile
  • Cons: Bulky, Heavy, Slow Focus, Slow Recycling

Leider zu unstetig

Meyer, Amazon
29 March 2014
  • Summary: Hallo liebe Interessenten! Update: Der sehr nette Verkäufer (Hobby FOTO, Ludwigsburg) hatte mir freundlicher Weise einen Austauschblitz gesendet, da ich hoffte, einen "Montagsblitz" erhalten zu haben. Leider kam es auch bei dem zweiten Blitz zu diesen Symptomen. Wir haben dann schweren Herzens beide Blitze zu unseren Kosten zurück gesendet. Den Verkäufer kann ich sehr empfehlen, den Blitz leider nur bedingt!

  • Excerpt: К продавцам претензий нет-что заказал, то и продали. Использовал пыхом в потолок с лопушком и без оного-непонятный пересвет . Способ корректировки через фотоаппарат как то не устраивает, потому как исчерпывает корректировку полностью. Встроенного лопуха как правило достаточно. Использовал лопухи разной конструкции, вывод один-чем проще тем лучше-иногда простого листочка бумаги размером в ладонь достаточно.
  • Pros: Достоинства: Цена; наличие встроенного лопушка и рассеивателя; мощность
  • Cons: При вспышке в потолок и при использовании лопуха на Д3100 пересвечивает в 4-5 раз, что непонятно. Может не определять объективы и ф.р. на них. Потом опять начать нормально работать. Весьма непредсказуемый аппарат. Отсутствие регулировки в режиме ТТL. Инструкция весьма невнятная
