  • Excerpt: Got a second one, since a cheapo sold by b&H conked out as a backup. The auto zoom flash angle drives me nuts, but I use diffuser(s) for most of my shots. Love the manual vari-power settings, since the auto settings are fickle on all flash units. B& H did not carry a simple diffuser for it. Shame shame. Still got my old one though. Make your own or buy one of their fancier ones.My old one recycles quickly and has been very reliable.
  • Pros: Durable, Fast Recycling, Good value, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Fickle Zoom Head

Good in some aspects...not so in others.

  • Excerpt: This flash advertises that it is compatible with D-TTL and I-TTL cameras and I confirm this by going to Sunpak's website and looking at their compatibility list of cameras. Well, with the Nikon D5100, the flash is flawless, but with the D100, it is a hit and miss. The exposure is very inconsistent with the D100. It exposes perfect one time, then under/over exposes the next time.
  • Pros: Great With I-ttl
  • Cons: Not Consistent With D-ttl

So far so good on my Nikon D5300

  • Excerpt: I am using this with my Nikon D5300. I had to play with it a little bit to get it to work TTL with the camera but it seems to be working well. The light seems even and well measured. I took some test shots with it at different metering modes (matrix, center, and spot) and it seemed to adjust the light output appropriately.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output

Using Sunpak for 30 + years

  • Excerpt: Thirty some years ago, Sunpak had a great little feature, the "Thyrister" which would automatically switch off when the subject had received enough light for the picture. Today with not only the thyrister, but coupled with the TTL feature, it's simply fantastic. i can't say enough GOOD about it. I really don't see the need to buy a Nikon Flash for your Nikon camera when the Sunpak will do the same thing, and for hundreds less. I love Sunpak... D. Swenson Ft.

On 7d vs 430EX

29 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I have used this Sunpak for 2 years with my Canon 7d and have been very pleased with it. I do mostly event photography and some photo-journalism. I have seen the reviews that say it is superior to Canon of similar price. It is and itn't compared to the Canon 430EX I just purchased. It may be: -Similar guide number. -It has good durablity -Good on camera and off camera with compatable ETTL cord or PocketWizzard. -Buttons are larger and easier to use.
  • Pros: Consistent Output, Durable
  • Cons: 7d Menu Does Not See It, No high speed sync, No slave

Sunpak PZ42X TTL Shoe Mount Flash

Marty, B&H Photo
31 January 2014
  • Excerpt: I am photo enthusiast. I use a Canon 60D. Most of my photos are of landscapes, with very little requirement for flash. I do occasionally take family photos. Since I am not a heavy user of flash, I felt that I did not need to incur the extra expense for a the purchase of a Canon flash. I have been more than pleased with the quality, features, and ease of operation of the Sunpak PZ42X TTL Shoe Mount Flash. The recycle time for me is more than adequate.
