cool pix but filters got stuck...

Comments about Lomographic Lomography Colorsplash Hot Shoe Flash with 12 Filters.:

The filter is pretty cool for an amateur, but after we took our first two rolls, one of the filters got stuck in the flash. I contacted the store to see what we could do about getting it replaced or repaired. I was told to return it, but in the meantime we tried to get the filter out and only managed to get another one stuck in there too. Once they're stuck you can't get them out, so buyer beware! Maybe we just got a lemon, but I didn't want to take any more chances with this one. I'd say go with the Lomo ring flash... a tiny bit more expensive but WAY cooler!

Comments about Lomographic Lomography Colorsplash Hot Shoe Flash with 12 Filters.:

You can't chose how much power to use, doesn't have a reference of wich aperture/speed is the best, so it's not really good for analog where you can't preview your photos. You don't want to use this flash in digital cameras. With it's +50V sync voltage it will fry the electric circuit on your cameras hot shoe.
you can only change 2 of the filters. the blue and the yellow one are fixed to the flash...
It's better to buy a real flash for real cameras, that support color filtering and power metering...
