              I contacted DotLine about trigger voltage. They lowered it to less than 6v some time ago. I am using this flash on my Sony A850 with sync cord, and cold shoe adapter to keep low profile. Allows me to carry portable fill flash w/minimal weight in gadget bag.

              I bought this flash with the utmost intention of using it for my polaroid land 100. To my extreme satisfaction it worked very well. The sync cord is very useful too and did connect with the land 100

                At the price point, this is an excellent flash. It's nothing fancy and the PC cable is a bit cheap, but I've had no problems with it's function. Despite it's relatively short range, it takes great shots.

                    Comments about RPS Lighting F-18 Shoe Mount Electronic Flash:

                    I bought this to use with a used Lubitel 166 universal (medium format) camera which I bought cheap. What drew me to this flash was the fact that it includes the sync cord. I priced a similar flash plus a sync cord but it would have cost me more to buy them separately, so it was a good deal. I mounted the flash onto an L-bracket rather than on the side shoe of the camera. On the plus side, a few diffusers I have for my Canon 430 and 580 EX flashes fit this one too. So that's cool. Of course, the flash doesn't have a rotating head, but that doesn't matter to me for this camera, which is just for fun. It seems to be working fine so far. It doesn't look very sturdy, so I doubt it will last too long if you're rough with your equipment, but for the price, you can't beat it.
