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 not<br />change 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.
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.
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.
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.
Excerpt: I use this both on and off camera (with a Vello TTL cord) with my Canon Powershot G15 and it works perfectly, within its power limits. The built-in diffuser works very well, and the TTL functionality works pretty well with my G15. I do occasionally need to adjust the flash output, but the G15 menus allow you to easily vary the output up to plus or minus 3 stops in 1/3 stop increments when in the aperture or shutter priority or program modes.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Versatile
Excerpt: I recently received my Nikon Df and wanted a very small flash in keeping with the low profile of the new Nikon. I have been very pleased with this flash unit. It is excellent in small spaces and for fill flash. As long as you don't expect it to perform like an SB-900/800, you will be pleased too. Best of all, it is so small you can take it anywhere.
