Very nice flash – YN-468II 1.6" LCD Flash Speedlite for Canon 30D/40D/50D + More (4*AA) Reviews

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

Pros:
This is the best "extra" camera equipment I've got. It has saved my pictures on a rainy day - either inside, in dull lightened areas or ourside in bright sunny days - with the sun behind my objects. Excellent value for money! TTL works flawlessly, though my sample had a little mismatch on its "helplight" when focusing in dark rooms inside. Overall - extremely much value for money! And as stated before, 1/3 (if not even cheaper) than any original comparison.
Cons:
Everything was fine, until some 3-400 pictures taken. Then my item was starting to fail. Flashed a few ms before, and after the shutter went down. Resulting in black pictures. I reconed it was battery failure, so replaced them. Same result. Bought new battires, with same result. After another few pictures (black ones...) the flash went dead - that is, the electronics workes - even the zoom - but the "bulb" was dead. Reading the other reviews here, it seems like my flash suffored from a bad days manufacturing.
Other:
Would buy it again with a new camera!
Bottomline:
Fantastisc product vs price!
