A Flash is a Flash is... 03/27/2013
It does what it's supposed to do. I'm not bothered in the least by the manual settings. It gives me more control over the end result anyway. It takes some getting used to, but after several test shots I was easily able to use the metering, make the settings and shoot.
The unit doesn't seem cheaply made at all. We'll see how this thing works out with some use, but I expect with reasonable care this flash should last. The large LCD screen is a nice feature, especially for someone like me over 40 wearing glasses.
It costs far less than other name brand flashes. It works great with my Nikon D5000 and is much less expensive than a Nikon flash.
It doesn't have TTL, but then for the price one can't expect such luxuries. Again, I generally prefer manual settings. The owner's manual is scant, only giving what the features are without any explanation. It's Chinese, but I'm not entirely certain that's a "con".
Just a great, simple camera flash with some good features.
