Flexible - good output - fast recycle

  • Excerpt: Flash is very flexible - head rotates in 2 planes. Fast recyle on TTL and reasonable recycle on full flash with alkaline batteries. Have not used the LED light but tested and seems to work ok. Still trying to work out the range of shutter speeds and f-stop combinations allowed even in TTL.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Powerful Output, Versatile

  • Excerpt: This is the first flash I've ever used and I love the product! I can't really give an extensive review so I just started using the flash and I'm not too experienced in using a flash but I love it. It's not too big, but it's on the heavier side. Great buy for the A7r!
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Great Picture Quality
  • Cons: Bulky

Flexible, simple.

  • Excerpt: Although I primarily shoot in natural light and have very little experience with flash photography, I will say that I am very pleased with this purchase. It makes an a7 extremely top heavy, but that's to be expected with such a small camera.
  • Pros: Easy to Use, Functional
