          Comments about Impact SF-DSXN40 Mini Slave Flash With Hot Shoe:

          I use these and ac slave flashes for what I call poor mans lighting. I get great results using these as fill lights, hair lights, and main lights. Not every one can afford costly strobes, if you can get them, if not then using items like this are great. You have more adjusting to do since light does not adjust, but works with great results, use multiple ones to act as strobes, if you need to shoot rapid shots them these will not recharge fast enough for you, but for a shot ever 8 to 10 secs then they work great.

            I use 2 SF-DSXN40 units to fire from speedlight. they work perfectly, mount to standard 3/16" tripod thread and are easy to gel.

              Comments about Impact SF-DSXN40 Mini Slave Flash With Hot Shoe:

              I first saw this mentioned in a David Ziser's wedding photography video. It is perfect for adding a bit of light to your shoot without adding a lot of gear or weight. The built-in stand is great for positioning on the floor, table, book shelf, or darned near anywhere. Just make sure the sensor has line of sight to your off camera flash and you can't miss. It's small enough to fit anywhere in your bag and for the price, why would you not have one?
