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

    I was on a time and budget crunch but needed a flash for an upcoming event I was shooting. I didn't have very high expectations for this product going in and I figured that if it survived through the weekend that that would be good enough. My low expectations were blown away. Upon receiving it I tried it out and it illuminated my entire good-sized living room. It lasted through the weekend (where it consistently delivered) and beyond. Once the ready light comes on (which for me was 5-30 seconds after turning it on) the recycling rate is very good.

    Now for the downsides: 1)the batteries are difficult to replace on the fly, mostly because the door is difficult to open. 2) It wobbles a tad on the hotshoe even when fully secured. 3) the plastic it's made of feels rather cheap and brittle. 4) the case it comes with looks and feels very low quality (this is the easiest downside to fix!).

    Overall, a decent flash for the money.
