  • It works, and it works well!

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

    Pros:

    I was a little skeptical, but I took a punt and it paid off!
    * E-TTL - Will talk to your Canon DSLR like a regular speedlite.
    * Can be used as a master or stand-alone slave. The second slave mode will even ignore some of the preflashes from the fill flash on the camera.
    * 360° rotatable head, 90° tilt.
    * Wide diffuser and bounce card.
    * Moderately quick recycle time
    * Comes with soft case and stand
    * Full auto or manual settings
    * LCD backlight

    Cons:

    * Part of the manual is in Engrish, part speaks about another flash (this one doesn't have a dial, it has buttons!)
    * Sometimes the buttons are unresponsive

    OtherThoughts:

    A decent flash. Good power output. Used it to take some portraits for friends and it worked very well.

    Bottomline:

    If you are thinking of buying a seperate flash for your DSLR and don't really feel like handing over all that money to Canon, give this one a try.
