    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week Pros:Light and small, you can take in anywhere with you. Cons:No control over how much light gets out. Slower reload, which is expectable, but I would trade half the power for 2x speed any day. OtherThoughts:I really wish I could set this flash to 50%, 25% and even 1... Read more

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:The best "pro" for this flash is the price, you can't get a cheaper flash. It charges up pretty quickly, but you can't except that it will be the same as some expensive flashes. It comes with a nice diagram to check your settings on camera, yes the whole thing... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:very light, uses just 2AA's and gives a pretty decent power. It has about 1/4 power of my SB700 and it costs under $10! Combined with 8201 it will work with any camera that can shoot manual flash, giving you a cheap, light, off camera flash for under $15. Cons... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Very cheap for a flash, even a non-adjustable one. Nice addition for "Lomo" cameras like the Holga/Diana/Blackbird Fly/Golden Half etc Very powerful (more than I wanted actually) Cons:For the price there are no real cons but if I had to list a few: N...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month Pros:Compact - most likely it will appear smaller than your camera and fit your pocket just fine. Lightweight - only 170 grams when loaded with 2*AA NiMH rechargeable batteries (32 grams each) and equipped by SKU 8201 remote trigger. Quick - recharge time is only 3... Read more

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month Pros:- small and very light weight - work with slave units perfectly (SKU 8201) - a set of four with slave triggers is enough to light up a fairly large room when using an on-camera master flash aimed into the ceiling - cheap (four flashes and four slave triggers t...

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day Pros:Cheap, small, lightweight flash. Cons:High sync voltage! (70 volts), this will fry many cameras if connected directly, search around online or check your cameras manual for the max voltage flash you can connect, or use some kind of remote trigger. My camera can... Read more
