Adorama AC Slave Flash

Although we are just starting out we have had noting but great success with this product. Bought 2 just to experiment and find they are a great accessory light for fill, hair, or background in portrait work. Never misfired, not even once, and have been dropped more than a hot rock. Great product and if you ever decide to stop making them please let us know because we'll stock up on them for sure.

Unexpected problem

When used with on-camera ETTL the pre-flash triggers the slave and totaly confuses the camera flash. I found it mandatory to switch the (Canon 580) flash to manual mode and then it worked fine.

VERY useful, but fails quickly


from Las Vegas, NV  -  Pro Photographer

Sadly this failed extremely quickly (50 actuations), but the usefulness of this product is off the chart. Going to give it another chance though, as I love it otherwise!


absolutely worth it

Great for extra lighting


from Edison, NJ  -  Semi-pro Photographer

These strobes are great to fill in lighting situations. Although not adjustable, for the price thet are very handy to have on hand at a shoot.

from U.S.A.  -  Photo Enthusiast

I'm a very experienced amateur photographer. I bought one of these, but it was dead on arrival. [...]For me, this was a "you get what you pay for" experience. Definitely a waste of my time and $$.

from IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

You can't change the output however you should be able add some sort of translucent material in front of it to defuse the light.

Excellent VAlue


from Lynchburg, VA  -  Photo Enthusiast

I ordered the AC socket (LTSKE) the Background Lite Stand (LTSB) and the Filter Set (LTACF) with the AC Slave (LTACS) and am very pleased with the set-up. I use the light for fill lighting or add filters to change background colors.

Big Flsah for Very littlt Cash.


from Alhambra, Ca (Just East of Losangeles)  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is one of my better additions to my bag of photography tools. The Flash unit adds to more options and lighting effects and creativity during shoots. Its small size allows placement in verious location that only add to to creative photography. It ma already be, but if there were a battery powered connection/power source, it would only increase its worth and allow unemcumbered (no wires)effects and lighting.


Questions & Answers Powered by TurnTo®

Questions about this item:

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
MIKE K  great light to put in a lamp to make it show up in a shot lit by strobes so it looks like it is on. i put a yellow filter accessory on it and some translucient yellow tape to make it look like an old lamp. worked great and fired in sync with the rest.
Ari F  What is the difference between these and monolights? Ari
PETER C  these are powered by a normal light socket and have no adjustable power. most monolights have adjustable power and have a separate ac power cord
Shopper  What do you need to use this (I am new to the whole thing): would it work using any lamp and screwing it in or do you need a dedicated tripod/setup? Thanks!
SAM A  It will work with any lamp but you must have a swivel socket to aim it at the subject.
