Most Liked Positive Review

 

Very nice little flash for my G7

Very compact flash with a nice tilting flash head for bounce shooting capabilities. Nice even consistent output. Very light and portable. Very inexpensive for a bounce flash. Perfect for the Canon G7. The only two cons are that it does take a bit of time for the flash to recycle after a full power flash and the construction is not tank-like. It's a bit flimsy. You get what you pay for. Besides those two things, it's great.

Great Basic Flash

This is a great product if you want an easy to use on camera flash option. It gives you 3 settings. M = Full power f/5.6 = half power and f/2.8 low power. The bounce head is handy if you don't want to blast your subject with the flash. Needs to be used with full manual camera settings. It is small and only needs 2 AA batteries. Recycle time is only OK its not too fast but not incredibly slow. I would recommend this item for the price you pay.

reaspn for purchase of flash

By

from Jackson, Tennessee  -  Photo Enthusiast

bought this flash because I own a Minolta film camera and it has a hot shoe that the flash just slips onto and is no trouble to do so. Don't know about this person who owns Fuji camera, if it doesn't have a hot shoe for a flash he or she is out of luck. flash comes with a booklet or at least mine did that might be helpful. Have no problems using it. When all else fails read the instructions.

Minimalist and compact

By

from Boulder, Co  -  Photo Enthusiast

I wanted a compact, minimalist flash for use with my non-TTL Leica M6 and M2 (which only will flash sync at 1/50th or longer). The Metz appears to be widely used with these cameras. I have done very little with strobes and wanted something that would make me think about what I was doing. Seems reasonably well made for the price and is very small. Recycle time is maybe five seconds. It presupposes ISO 100 film, so you have to do the arithmetic for different speeds. Seems to eat batteries if left on. The price is right. The manual is only OK.

Outstanding for the price!

By

from Houston, TX  -  Photo Enthusiast

The automatic settings work exceedingly well. As long as I'm working within the recommended distances, using this flash as per the instructions in Auto mode works just as well as my EX430II does in TTL mode. It works with my Mamiya 7, my Nikon FE, and both my Canon SLRs. It would only take more range/power to put this flash into a 5-star rating. At its price, though, it's amazingly good.

Shopper  how do you attach it on your fuji camera?
NATHANIEL S  I dondt used only with nikon fe & fm2
Ron M  will this work with my Nikon film camera in manual? Ron
Andrew R  This unit is not dedicated and should work with most cameras that are equipped with a standard hotshoe.
MARTIN F  Various specifications indicate the the 2.8 and 5.6 aperture settings are for ISO100. But couldn't one use use ISO400 by the stopping down two stops - say from 2.8 to 11.2?
ARLYN D  yes but two stops is 5.6, not 11.2
