Great for carrying around – YY BY-18 Electronic Flash (5600K) Reviews

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

Pros:
Light and small, you can take in anywhere with you.
Cons:
No control over how much light gets out. Slower reload, which is expectable, but I would trade half the power for 2x speed any day.
Other:
I really wish I could set this flash to 50%, 25% and even 12.5%. That way I could shoot in dark conditions without blowing out the rest of the scene and the recycle period would be much slower.
Bottomline:
When packing light and expecting to need flash, this one works great. If you find yourself in need of setting the flash power, or expect more event style shooting, you need to bring your system, that has settings.
