Pros:
price and build qualities are perfect. I am not expert but bulb in the flash is new generation not old type. load speed is very fast <3sc. it is best for diy studio photographers. with a trigger and mini soft box (sku 37666) getting diffuse light is simple. may be you can modify the flash and inseret a dc cable for indoor use only.
Cons:
Actually it's a analog flash not suitable for DSLR type cameras. when you put it to hot shoe Camera will not see the flash. so when you select the camera's flash to on, it just pops up build in flash only.. syncro voltage not suitable especially for Nikon d90.
Other:
Bottomline:
I recommend this for especially indoor studio photographers. simply cheap and working as a studio flash.
