      Such a small price for a big addition to my lighting scheme. I'm using it to produce a gentle fill light by aiming it into a gold reflector. As a simple shooter who has to move with my young clients, the combination of on camera flash (inside a tiny softbox) and this soft golden overall light, I'm getting great results. It fires every time and after I turn it on and aim it, I forget it. Love that I don't have to be a techie to operate it. So simple.

        Got 2 to supplement my SB900 for a shooting flowers and products indoors. I love them. keep in mind they are not power adjustable and do not recognize a pre-flash so TTL is out. But they are great for fill and so easy to place and the price is right.

        Comments about SP Studio Systems Midi Slave DC Flash:

        This affordable unit doesn't require a powered sync cable but does have to be in sight of your camera's hot shoe mounted or built-in flash. It synchronizes best for me when my camera's flash is set on half power.

          This thing is great. When I read the previous reviews I didn't really believe the versatility of this little flash. But it's the coolest little flash ever. compact, versatile, and inexpensive. Perfect for areas that need additional light, and you don't need a larger kit to get it. Great for back and fill.

            Love it! I use it with Gorilla pods to get low to the ground but just above grass etc, plus you can wrap them around limbs and things with this flash.

                This is a handy little additional light for on location shooting. It works as a slave but it is not necessary to put it on a hotshoe. It can sit on the ground or be attached to a light stand. It is little but plenty bright. You can even use it on your camera hotshoe as a flash although I wouldn't use it for that. It is a great addition to your bag of tricks.

                    I've been impressed with these little lights as kickers. Well-made, sturdy, very sensitive to light. Plus, they have a built in stand (nice!) and even a screw mount which was not expected!

                        This little flash is wonderful! I love that it's so small and portable - no worries or hassles to set it up. It's just a matter of popping it out of my bag and it's ready to go! The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is because sometimes it is a little annoying that it goes off with absolutely any flash. Since I'm a wedding photographer, there are tons of little point and shoot cameras at weddings - so it goes off a lot even when I'm not ready for it yet. But overall, it's great... I am learning to live with 'sharing' it with other cameras :-).

                          This little slave puts a nice, warm glow behind a subject (great for bridals/couples). I've even used it as a main light for head shots (just for fun) and it actually worked great (again, just for casual...not enough life to last for a full portrait session, plus you'd prolly feel a little funny using it, haha).

                            I use this flash as a kicker and rim light together with colored gels. This is a great little addition to my camera bag while on location. Very simple to use and yet powerful enough to get the job done! I would definately buy another 2! You just can't beat it for the price of this unit!

                            I have used it as a background flash to create a rim light at the head and shoulders of my subject. For the price it's a nice addition to my lighting arsenal.

                            3. No Setup!

                            The real guide # is only 45

                            The guide is only 45 according to what it says on the back of the unit. Save a few bucks and get the smith victor mini slave g# 40'/12m for 17.50. It is identical!! I can't even tell the diff. in light output.
