Great mini slave flash – Digital Pro Slave Flash - Black (2*AA) Reviews

posted by maxalvarez on 08/08/2012 Certified Owner

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

Pros:
- Reduced size - Cheap - Bracket, hotshoe adapter and screws included - Easy to operate - Works perfect with Ni-Mh batteries
Cons:
- Maybe too much power consumption compared with other similar powered flashes - Poor recycle time - Difficult to trigger them optically outdoors
Other:
I own two of these and I use them as remote fill flashes (Indoors) and even as a DIY anular flash with both units. Indoor performance is quite good, S1 to S4 modes works fine. Worst thing about them, is that recycle time is a little long and they drain the batteries real fast.
Bottomline:
Good illumination device, very limited working range but due to their small size, can hide them really close to the subject you want to light. The optical slave mode is quite useless at daytime outdoors.
