            Comments about Bower Illuminator Dedicated Flash for Canon Cameras:

            I have only been using my Bower flash for only a week and oh boy, am loving it. I used it to photographed a couple last sunday in seattle.
            I love how it very small and yet could produce such amazing light.
            My only problem was, I couldn't turn away the flash off my clients face and that was a little disappointing.

                    This flash didn't work(PERIOD),pulled it out the box, loaded the batteries, pushed the lit test botton, and NOTHING! Changed batteries, and still NOTHING! Put it on the camera,(hoping it was just a faulty test button), fired off a few shots, still NOTHING! DON'T BUY THIS PRODUCT, IT'S JUNK! Sending it's going back soon as I get my RMA#

                          The product did not work properly. It would only fire in the straight up position. I am waiting for a replacement.
