Does not work with Nikon D80


from OH  -  Photo Enthusiast

I had to return this item. Information stated it would work with Nikon cameras it did not work at all with my Nikon D80. The return was very easy, the customer service is one of the reasons I have purchased all my camera equipment from Adorama.


This is for SFD926O for Panasonic


from Dallas, TX  -  Semi-pro Photographer

Three months out of warranty the flash just died, except for the zoom, lights, everything else. It just won't flash. Ready light comes on, but won't test or fire with the camera. Emails and calls to company got handed off until I just didn't get a reply at all. When it did work, output was almost as weak as pop up flash and very inconsistent. I have a Lumix DMC-FZ150 I tried it with. Although it seems to have a good build it is just plain junk. You've been warned.

Not for the Panasonic FZ200


from Pittsford, NY  -  Semi-pro Photographer

I couldn't get this flashgun to fire at all with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200. (I replaced it with a Panasonic DMW-FL500.)


I recommend this product


from mount vernon, wa  -  Photo Enthusiast

The versatility of this product is what makes it especially useful. It swivels from left to right as well as up and down, and therefore can be used in a variety of situations.


Nice Features


from Kirksville, Missouri  -  Semi-pro Photographer

The add said this flash would work as a slave unit. My pctures turned out dark when I used this as a slave unit. I don't know if it's my camera or the flash. It worked very nicely on camera, so I'm assuming its the way I was trying to use the flash. I was very dissappointed in the slow 10 to 12 second recycle time after a full blast.

Questions about this item:

Shopper  will the 926c work with canon t3i?
Andrew R  This flash should work with most Canon EOS system SLR/DSLR cameras.
Twin D  is there a fix for the hot foot on this unit?
DARRELL A  The foot is too long. I had to gently shorten mine to make it fit. On a flash bar, I use a rubber band to help keep it secure.
