  • Outstanding flash unit

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:

    - Powerful
    - Zoom motor smooth and quiet
    - Intuitive and comfortable controls
    - Very reliable
    - Great build quality, feels very solid
    - Awesome recycle speed
    - Multi mode from 1shot/1Hz to 100shots/100Hz
    - Optical slave works great
    - Built-in reflector card and diffuser

    Cons:

    - Maybe I could say that sound indicator is sometimes annoying, but it´s easily disabled just by pushing one button.

    OtherThoughts:

    I´m using three of these with SKU.65522 triggers, and they work great together.

    Perfect either inside or outside shooting, powerful enough for balancing sunlight use, shooting through softbox or umbrella, reflecting or any other lightning technique you can think of.

    Just one thing to say, don´t expect great results from the optical slave mode when you´re in sunlight, but it works flawlessly for interior use.

    Bottomline:

    I really love this flash unit. I think it´s the best item I´ve ever purchased on DX.

    100% Recommended.

    If you need a good and cheap manual flash, this is your best choice!
