Did I get A Dud?

Noonum, Adorama
2 weeks ago
  • 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.
  • Pros: Lightweight

Limited compatibility with EOS-M

winklebleck, B&H Photo

  • 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

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

works well with Canon G15

TommyDee, B&H Photo
3 February 2014
  • 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

Compact external flash does what it's designed for

Pincher, Bestbuy
31 January 2014
  • Summary: This unit does what it's designed for - a short range flash that offers more flexibility than a built-in flash. And it travels well.
  • Pros: Compact and flexible
  • Cons: Limited power for long distances

Great performance in a tiny package

EHess Camera Guy, B&H Photo
2 January 2014
  • 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.

Unacceptable Customer Service

NiceShotSteve, B&H Photo
29 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Did not work on my Canon 6D. Sent to manufacturer for repairs. That was in March 2013, and haven't seen the unit since. Sunpak just says "We're working on it." Buy something else.
