Very consistent and dependable.

Looking for a back up I bought this flash intent on returning it if...., with only an on-off switch I was amazed at how reliable it is within its range. I soften the light with the right amount of matte finish scotch tape at the front of the flash and use the camera (iso etc) to make any adjustments. The light is pleasing too. Keeper.

So far so good

By

from Ocala FL  -  Pro Photographer

I got this as a 2nd shoe mount flash to be used off-camera. It's a little less sturdy & lighter weight than my Canon flash, but it has served its purpose well thus far. I've only had it a couple of weeks. Other than a few test shots; I did a commercial shoot featuring jewelry. The flash performed as well as my Canon & since it's a secondary or backup flash, it's lighter weight is a plus. I would purchase this flash again.

Great Basic Speed Flash

By

from Boston Ma.  -  Semi-Professional

Just picked this up to shoot my first wedding for an aquaintance, and it proved to be a work-horse. The wedding was outdoors at sunset and I wanted to use the dramatic sunsets their location was known for as the back-drop but the on-camera flash would never have cut it. Not wanting to carry my strobes and gear around, I opted for this unit for my Nikon D5100. It produced plenty of light for the fieldwork before, during and after sunset. I good basic flash that makes a solid addition to anyones accessory pack.

Good value

By

from Vermont  -  Getting Started

I"m a beginner. This flash is simple and works well for ceiling bounce. So, I'm happy. Its a bit big, so I don't carry it around much. My wish list would include a smaller version of the same, maybe with wireless or a cable so I can create some sidelight.

Great basic flash

By

from Charlotte, NC  -  Semi-Professional

If you are looking for an affordable, simple, lightweight flash, this is a great product. I needed one in a hurry and didn't have a lot of money, and this fit the bill. If you are looking for something more on the professional level, this doesn't have the additional functions and features you will need, but for everyday use, its great.

Works great

I really like this flash for the price and the functionality. Only had it two months, but ordered another one already. Using it with Cactus' wireless tranceiver kit for remote triggering, and it's given me amaazing results.
