    After a lot of back and forth with research, I had a really hard time choosing a "speedlight". I am on a budget, so until I can afford one–at which time I will probably go with the new 600EX-RT–I finally chose this flash. That said, I have taken at least 2000 shots with this flash and it is definitely a little gem. It works absolutely fantastic. It is worth every penny.

    The only real complaint I have is the lock mechanism, it isn't broken or anything but it isn't as secure as it could be. However, this does not stop it from being secure enough meaning, although I wish it were more of a snug fit, I have no problem shooting with it. Excellent results, if you're on a tight budget but need a flash, this is winner!

    *Purchased to help assist another photographer in a wedding shoot
    *Usually a natural light fan, so still learning about the flash
    *Thus far, I can tell it is great for a beginner. Seems rather durable for the price. Would recommend for a beginner.

          Comments about Bower SFD926C Digital Shoe Mount Flash for Canon SLR:

          This flash is a solid product and is a great value. The TTL mode works pretty well and everything else functions like it should. The head swivels and rotates smoothly and the slave mode works great. I didn't give it 5 stars however because it only has power settings down to 1/16 and it would be nice if it went lower. Additionally, the flash is quite noisy at times and sounds like a jet taking off while the capacitor is recharging. Not too bad though.

                              t's just the first time I use it, the light it emits is effective, I read about that some are worried about the "door" of the batteries, but to me it was fine. Something that I find a bit annoying is a high-pitched sound when loading the flash before firing it, not as high as it sounds, but enough to hear it. Finally for the price it's doing enough.

                                  Honestly. This is a good flash. After reading all the reviews. High and low. I decided what's [$] and just bought it. I'm using it on my canon 20d right now as my backup camera. Yes the locking mechanism is kinda weird. Yes it doesn't sit as flush as you would like. But it's solid. It has the whining sound. But guess what. It works and get the job done. Gets it done very wellIf your on the fence. Don't be. It's a geat flash

                                            Seemed to work fine on my 7d at a third the cost of a speed lite . Problem .. When I upgraded to a 5D mark III the TTL is in compatable, all the pictures are so over exsposed the practly pure white. Bower went ahead and sent me 2 new ones but they do the same thing, I have tried other third party flashes that worked fine . Another note If using this flash as a remote they often shut off and need to be restarted, and the batteries drain quickily. I never had the problem when it is mounted on the camera

                                              I have been wanting to buy a hot shoe mount flash for my Canon Rebel XS, but could not afford the Canon 580 EXII. So I purchased the Bower SFD926C for less than 1/4 the price and I am very happy with it. Easy to use, works great with my Rebel XS, no problems at all with the TTL functions and it even has the off camera slave function. If iut had a Master function it would be perfect.
                                              I found the mounting to be easy on/off and solid. I would purchase another one and recomend it to a friend.

                                                This flash fits my canon t2i very well. I have compared it to the canon flash and it works just as well. I suggest this to anyone looking for a great bargin.

                                                  I bought the flash for use on my Canon 10d. The flash seemed to perform well, but it does not seat very well on the camera. The mount does not securely attach the flash to the camera - instead it flops around a bit. The brochure said the flash attaches to the camera with a disk that you twist and tighten. It actually comes with a mount that you squeeze and it does not tighten completely. Not sure if this is a problem with other Canon DSLRs, but it is a problem with the 10d.

                                                    Works great out of box.

                                                    Haven't tried slave feature yet, but ppears to work fine.

                                                        Comments about Bower SFD926C Digital Shoe Mount Flash for Canon SLR:

                                                        After a lot of back and forth with research, I had a really hard time choosing a "speedlight". I am on a budget, so until I can afford one–at which time I will probably go with the new 600EX-RT–I finally chose this flash. That said, I have taken at least 2000 shots with this flash and it is definitely a little gem. It works absolutely fantastic. It is worth every penny.

                                                        The only real complaint I have is the lock mechanism, it isn't broken or anything but it isn't as secure as it could be. However, this does not stop it from being secure enough meaning, although I wish it were more of a snug fit, I have no problem shooting with it. Excellent results, if you're on a tight budget but need a flash, this is winner!
