Great Speedlite flash for Nikon Cameras – 560-II 2.0" LCD Flash Speedlite Speedlight (4 x AA) Reviews

Pros:
This is a great option when choosing a speedlite-type flash for your camera. Although non-TTL type, it's easy of use is really impressive. The Guide number of 58 (Zoom 105/ISO 100) is a little overestimated, I think, but this is not a problem, the flash is still powerful enough. The zoom motor is very silent, the commands are very easy to find and the amber-illuminated LCD contains all the informations needed. Works well in all modes (Master, Slave 1 & 2 and multi (strobe) flash (although I don't see a real use for the last one).
Cons:
NO cons whatsoever
Other:
Either an amateur or a professional photographer can get the most of their pictures with this fine speedlight flash unit. Very useful, well-constructed and, till this date, very reliable.
Bottomline:
I will strongly recommend it for anyone who wants a non-TTL flash for Nikon cameras.
