  • Excerpt: I use this flash when I am going somewhere indoors where I cannot bring my lighting equipment (obviously) and it doesn't seem to take much battery for each flash. The flash is so precise that it doesn't seem to jarring to people being photographed, like some flashes do.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Powerful Output

  • Excerpt: I am a beginner to ttl flash and had a chance to use this flash over the past weekend. I love it! It's easy to understand. It's not complicated! I'm still learning how to get the right exposure for the different situations and it's really a good flash!

  • Excerpt: I just got into the habit of carrying it with me and actually using it. I've only ever changed the batteries once before. This is literally the second time I've had to change the batteries and now the flash won't fire.

  • Excerpt: The good. Good price point for a powerful and flexible flash. Used as fill flash and in low light situations. If this unit lasts half as long as my 35+ year old Sunpack 411 I will be a happy camper. The bad.

Works fine, after a firmware upgrade

Brycee's Dad, Adorama

  • Excerpt: I wanted a flash with manual settings, and many I looked at were $300+. My goal was "shooting" hummingbirds and "freezing" the rapidly beating wings. It wasn't so much for illumination (although that helped with some twilight shots), but for the (use of) the flash to effectuate a higher shutter...
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Value, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
