Summary: I ordered this Monday, it arrived Friday. It works great with my Cannon Rebel xsi! It worked great! Bright flash too! When I use it, I disable my flash on my camera and use Zeikos slave flas instead! I love it!!!!! Thank you!!! :) Works great with my NEW Cannon Rebel XSi It takes 2 double AA batteries- It's the perfect size- It has a great flash- It has a red light that light up when it's ready- It comes with GREAT easy to read instructions- Its bracket works great!!
Summary: Bought 2 of these at once because they were so cheap, but we know cost is directionally proportional to performance. Both seemed to function ok as a slave on the 1st 5 or so fires from a master flash. Then the first one went dead for optical triggering, then the other ones press to test fire function went inoperative.
Summary: This flash appears to be nicely built and well finished. For its price, it doesn't appear to be cheap. It has two switches. One of the switch works as a power on/off switch as well as to select "Normal Mode" i.e., mounted on camera hot shoe triggered by the camera circuitry, or "Slave On Mode", where the flash can be used as an optical slave triggered by the camera's on-board flash.
