  • Compact and lightweight shadows killer

    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...5 seconds depending on batteries' voltage.

    Cons:

    Is not adjustable in neither way, so the best use for these flashes is equipping them with remote triggers (once again: look at SKU 8201) and putting them on a separate holders (like SKU 1309) for lighting away the shadows produced by your on-camera flash.

    Also, the fixing nut looks weak.

    OtherThoughts:

    I've bought 3 of them in a bulk and they do their job.

    Bottomline:

    If you need secondary flashes - these are a good choice.
