Great cheap flash – YY BY-18 Electronic Flash (5600K) Reviews

Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
The best "pro" for this flash is the price, you can't get a cheaper flash. It charges up pretty quickly, but you can't except that it will be the same as some expensive flashes. It comes with a nice diagram to check your settings on camera, yes the whole thing is manual.
Cons:
For me it has no cons, I hope the flash light will work for a long time. Maybe a build quality could be a little better.
Other:
I use it on a old film camera, so I don't know about high voltage problems.
Bottomline:
If you are in photography as a semi pro or a professional is logical to buy a better flash. But to use this flash on old film cameras, now this flash is a good buy.
