  • Excerpt: This flash was exactly what I was looking for, to use as fill flash on my full frame camera that doesn't have a pop up.unfortunately it was a dud so I returned it.I may try it again as it has been highly rated by many people and Sunpak is usually very good.

Just what my 6D needed!

  • Excerpt: I missed the built-in flash my T4i had. I have the 403EX ii but wanted something small enough to fit in my pocket. This fit the bill nicely.

Did I get A Dud?

Noonum, Adorama
2 September 2014
  • Excerpt: I have always been happy with Sunpak products and this little flash seemed to fill the bill as the built -in flash that my full frame Canon 6D doesn't have. However, when I put it on my camera it flashed once and never again, after that I could notchange the settings or turn it off, I had to remove it from the camera and take out the batteries. Such a shame as it was quite a powerful little guy.

Limited compatibility with EOS-M

  • Excerpt: Solid little flash, worked on most of my cameras with the exception of the one I wanted to use it for, the EOS-M. If all you want is full auto on P mode with auto ISO, the RD2000c works with the EOS-M. Any straying from auto everything initiates a full powered flash and a washed out image. I contacted Sunpak and was told the EOS-M is not support, and there are no plans to add it.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile

Nice flash for the money

  • Excerpt: Using this flash on A Nikon D3200. I've had it about a week. Could have spent more. But this flash seems to do the job well for everyday flash situations. And, I would recommend this unit to others.

Really weak flash

MinAZ, B&H Photo
7 May 2014
  • Excerpt: This flash has a few really desirable features such as ETTL metering, tilting head for bounce flash, and a small portable size. The unfortunate downside is that the flash is extremely weak. If the camera has a built in flash, then its a good bet that the built in unit has almost if not equal power to this unit. Therefore, I cannot recommend it unless there is no flash on board and portability is paramount.
  • Pros: Lightweight
  • Cons: Weak Output

NIce Flash for the price

rainrunner, B&H Photo
26 April 2014
  • Excerpt: I was searching for an inexpensive flash which had good reviews, and I think I found it. Using this flash with my lumaquest pocket bouncer and a Vello off camera cord which I also purchased, I am able to take flower pictures with a dark sky background, using this flash off camera. It has a slow recycle time, but I feel it is worth what I paid for it. This will be my hiking/backpacking flash since it is small and lightweight.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight, Versatile
  • Cons: Slow Recycling
