The Bower SFD926P is a power zoom flash with LCD Display. Fully dedicated for Pentax and Samsung Digital Cameras. The flash has Zoom, Bounce and Swivel Head. It also has Auto Check indicator, red AF assistance beam and Auto Power Saving Function.
The flash features an autofocus, auto-zoom flash head, which auto-senses the focal length of the camera's lens and adjusts itself accordingly, within the range of 24mm to 85mm. It can also tilt and swivel for complete creative control. Additionally, there is a built-in slave mode, diffuser and reflector allowing further control and modification of the light output. It is an ideal economical all-around flash for any digital or 35mm autofocus SLR shooter.
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.
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.
I couldn't get this flashgun to fire at all with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ200. (I replaced it with a Panasonic DMW-FL500.)
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.
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.
