5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Little Flash!

Pros: -Small Size
-Great dedicated flash
-Not cumbersome
-The ability to angle the flash to diffuse it is great
-The feel of the flash is not bulky so the camera still feels comfortable in your hands

Cons: it is a bit pricey but the quality you are buying if totally worth it!

Other Thoughts: When I first started shooting hated using my Canon XT's built in flash. It drained the battery, you could not do continuous shooting, and the flash washed everything out because it was flashing directly. But this little flash is a champ!
