Not with a DP1M

  • Excerpt: I wanted a powerful, bounce-able flash for my DP1M. At the salesman's suggestion, I tried this as the only alternative that might - and he emphsized might- work. It didn't. Sometimes it just plain wouldn't fire. Couldn't figure out why.

  • 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.

  • Pros: Attach Securely, Powerful

Returned

  • Excerpt: Planned to use it off-camera but manual settings allow only full power or 1/16 power. Disappointed of not being able to have full manual control. Product description unclear. Even the vendor was unsure until we unpacked one.

  • 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.
