    Pros:
    Great back up flash. Bigger ones require lots of battery power + weight. This one is just so convenient to carry around. Very compact and easy to use. Simple, cheap, and lightweight. Wireless use is great too. Light sensor is quite sensitive.
    Cons:
    None really. More features would be great, but for this price, not necessary.

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

    Pros:
    * Cheap! * Feels solid! * Flash-head can tilt upwards, so you can bounce flash off the ceiling. * Bright like the sun. I have to shoot party-photographs at F16 and s/320 with this thing
    Cons:
    * Bad connector. If you twist the "tightening wheel" to much on your hotshoe, the pin from the flash will refuse to s...

    A small and affordable flash

    posted by yewteeguy on 05/01/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    It fits well into SLR and long zoom cameras. Use 2x AA batteries. Easy to use. I used it on my Fuji Finepix camera. See attached photos. It can tilt 90 degrees (face up ceiling). Charges up quite fast. Works out of the box.
    Cons:
    The manual is in Chinese but not a big problem as I read Chinese. Does not include the AA batteries.

    Great Flash for any camera

    posted by cosminvarlan on 01/15/2013 Certified Owner

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

    Pros:
    There is only one flash cheaper then this one here on DX.com [http://dx.com/p/yy-by-18-electronic-flash-5600k-11402]. However, this one can also be used on Nikon cameras because the discharge is at low voltage. I used it with my Nikon D5100 without any prob...
    Cons:
    Actually nothing to write here - for only 15$ there is nothing I could ask more from this. Manuals in chinese - that is why I ...

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

    Pros:
    It's cheap. Very cheap. It's just cheapest flash. I bought it for Canon 5D because this camera doesn't have internal flash. Of course. I bought another flash with TTL support later. But for the first time this simple flash was enough to make some pictures a...
    Cons:
    No power controls. Don't have any controls at all.
