        Comments about Impact SF-DTWX24 Mini Dome Wide Slave Flash:

        This was my second purchase of the Impact Slave Flash. I found great utility with the first flash that I purchased to light up corners or add highlights to my photos. I was so satisfied with the first one that I purchased a second to provide more lighting alternatives. For the modest price it's a fun addition to my lighting bag.

        I wish there were a version that focused the light more narrowly. I can use a light modifier to sculpt the light but it would be helpful to have a unit with a more focused beam for backlighting portraits or highlighting backgrounds.

          Comments about Impact SF-DTWX24 Mini Dome Wide Slave Flash:

          Simple, bright and surprisingly durable. After my return from a shoot out of town, this little number took a ride in the washing machine with my clothes. I had packed it in the pocket of some pants and wrapped them around it to protect in the suitcase. Then the whole thing went into the laundry.

          I pulled it after the cycle, let it dry and it worked like a champ. 'nuff said.

          My ONLY knock is that it would help to have a delay to ignore Nikon CLS pre-flashes. However, I knew that going in.

            Comments about Impact SF-DTWX24 Mini Dome Wide Slave Flash:

            I use this mostly for lighting portrait backdrops. It's very good for that purpose, but I have to be careful not to obscure the slave sensor. It's not as sensitive as some other slaves I've used. It only uses 2 AA batteries so it does not recycle as quickly as I would like.

                I bought 2 of these to use in addition to my Canon speed light. I'm impressed by how compact they are and the amount of light they provide. In all honesty, they do not look like they will last as long as my speed light, but at such a low cost it won't break the bank when replacement time rolls around.

                Comments about Impact SF-DTWX24 Mini Dome Wide Slave Flash:

                These strobes are useful as accent or perhaps fill in some more complex lighting scenarios. I use one in a floor lamp under the shade to simulate a light bulb. Its kind of weak but effective. It works. Construction won't win awards but then you I wouldn't ever really abuse this strobe in the field. It is sensitive and triggers easily. Don't expect any frills, its void of those. Basic on/off switch and test switch - thats it. Nice option for in use with a 1/4-20 socket and angled bottom so it can be tilted directionally if needed.

                  Bought 4 of them.
                  Especially like how sensative they are to light.

                      These mini slave flashes fit my need perfectly for use with a multi site ID photo process, at an economical price. This is my first online experience with B&H (I am in Melbourne/Australia) and will certainly deal with them again. Both their online & phone support was perfect, with an efficient payment & delivery process (6 days to AU). Great product with great service

                          I shoot interiors and wanted a flash that was small enough to easily place inside a lamp and with a wide enough spread to be able to mimic the light from lamp's standard bulb. These work perfectly. The only issue I have is that they are a bit TOO powerful to be used for this application at f8, ISO400, so I wrapped some ND gels around them. Voila--no more color correcting incandescent lamp light.
