  • Great little flash

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:

    This flash worked right out of the box after putting batteries in it. I tested it with a Lumix DMC FZ18 with preflash (slave mode on S1) and it worked without problems.. Will use it as a fill in flash and may buy a couple more.

    Batteries fitted well, not too tight. Tested it with NikkelAnhydride batteries and worked fine

    Cons:

    Not really, it does what it is supposed to do

    OtherThoughts:

    It may seem hard to figure out how to put in the batteries --> check the lid of the battery dock: It shows a + and a -

    The slavemodes are quite easy:

    S1: fire on first flash (skip nothing)

    S2: fire on second flash (for most preflash situations)

    S3: fire on third flash (so skip 2)

    S4: fire on fourth flash (so skip 3)

    As I knew my camera only has one preflash, I immediately selected S2 and that worked.

    Oddly: if I put my cam on red-eye reduction, as far as I know it fires 2 preflashes. Still the flash needed to be set to S2, well, maybe I am mistaken with the 2 preflashes.

    Nevertheless, there is a clearly visible delay between the red-eye flash and the main flash from the camera and this SlaveFlash had no trouble working with this

    Bottomline:

    Really worthwhile buying if you need a small flash to support yr main flash or if you need a fill in light
