Great Speedlite for Nikon – Oloong SP-690II 2.0" LCD Flash Speedlite Speedlight for Nikon (4 x AA) Reviews

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:more than 1 month

Pros:
- 100% compatible with i-TTL Nikon; - Great build quality; - Many Flash modes, as i-TTL, Manual, Master and Slave (1 or 2); - Compatible with CLS system (Master and Slave); - Very Powerful, I doubt some take about guide number 50, but there is no doubt than it is a powerful speedlite; - LCD is very useful and friendly. - The Manual user guide is very easy to read and understand how to any thing with the SP-690II (or SP690II)
Cons:
- While set as Master, it cannot shot flash to upgrade the photo, it only manages the other slaves; - This is some take expensive, but now it`s cheaper than I bought, a little...
Other:
This speedlite is an answer for the SP690N (or SP-690N), because the previous version is not compatible with CLS Nikon system, while the 690II can works perfectly as Master or Slave.
Bottomline:
Great option to external studios when there is no chance to use professional Light Studio Flashes, because you can also use an external power (Model Canon CP-E4).
