Great product for NEX 5R

Great Improvent

Adorama

  • Excerpt: This flash is a significant improvement over the original flash that comes with the NEX cameras. The range is better and plus the bounce feature makes it possible to create a much nicer effect. The only drawback is that you are not supposed to leave it on the camera when it is in the bag. It is dramatically bigger than the original flash but it is well worth it!
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
  • Cons: Not Interchangeable

Excellent bounce flash

GaryK, Crutchfield
1 July 2013
  • Summary: This flash made a huge improvement in my photos. It works best in 'bounce' mode, where the flash bounces off a ceiling, resulting in softly diffused light resulting in far better pictures of people compared to using direct flash. It's powerful enough for most indoor situations, and is far more compact than most DSLR flashes. I also like how it does not have internal batteries.
  • Pros: Great bounce flash photos No batteries (uses camera power) Compact in size
  • Cons: Does not fit both of my NEX bodies (fits on my NEX-5N, but not NEX-6) Flash power adjustments sometimes needed to avoid overexposed photos

Not for dramatic lighting

  • Excerpt: I bought this flash to bounce off walls and take pictures with dramatic lighting - i.e. all the light coming from one side. This flash does not perform like that.
