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. <br /><br />It didn't. Sometimes it just plain wouldn't fire. Couldn't figure out why. And in TTL mode I just wasn't getting good or consistent results. Otherwise seemed like a fine, well made unit. <br /><br />B&H's return policy saved the day.
Excerpt: I felt that the TTl on this flash was not giving me a consistantly good exposure. <br />As a test, I took a picture using f5.6 and kept on setting the f stops higher. The exposure was desent until the higher f stops. I thought perhpas this happend because the flash can't give out more light. <br />I then took the same shot with the manual setting on full blast, and the picture was overexposed.
Excerpt: Planned to use it off-camera but manual settings allow only full power or 1/16 power.<br /><br />Disappointed of not being able to have full manual control. Product description unclear. Even the vendor was unsure until we unpacked one.
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!
