Excerpt: Really good flash for what I do. Consistent output and flexible. The plastic foot is not super strong. I broke mine by dropping it while attached to one of my cameras, but liked it so much, I ordered another.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Powerful Output, Versatile
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.
Pros: Consistent Output, Easy To Use, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile

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.

Pros: Easy To Use, Excellent Value, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output
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.
Pros: Durable, Fast Recycling, Good value, Lightweight, Versatile
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.
