            Comments about Polaroid PL-126PZ Shoe Mount Flash for Sony:

            Waited several months for this flash as it was back ordered, wish I had went with a different flash. It wil lso what it says, but it is just a simple flash. The setup for the bounce and difuser is a joke and just about worthless. It does have good light and recharges fairly quick, just remember, this is a no frills flash.

              I needed a bit better flash than the built in unit on the a200. This fille3d the bill nicely!

                  Great flash for half the price. I have a Minolta D flash that I use on my Sony and a Sony flash. This flash is better than either one.

                  The only thing wrong is the case that comes with the flash is a little too small.

                        I use this flash for groups of people where you can move back and zoom to get them all in and still have good coverage. This flash is more than strong enough for my purposes. It is also high enough to use with a Tamron 18mm to 200mm zoom lens without the lens blocking the foreground light. Although a little heavy, the fact that it is is powered by four AA cells, to me is a definate advantage. It is well worth the money. The bounce and zoom features are also a plus. The auto metering system works perfectly and I would definately recomend this flash to a friend
