  • 1Description

The Sunpak 120J II Flash Kit offers a bare bulb-style on-camera flash for Canon cameras with E-TTL / E-TTL II functionality. The bare bulb lighting style provides a more natural, rounded lighting pattern compared to the rectangle shape common with modern Speedlites. It also features a guide number of 177' at ISO 100 and 105mm which contributes to the effective range of 4.3 to 190.3'. The 120J II also includes an external power pack and cable for a fast recycle time of 1 second.

The 120J II has a bounce and swivel head that allows you to change the position of your light to get the best lighting for your situation. The settings can be changed on the LCD control panel on the rear of the device to add more control to your shooting. Additionally, it features wireless TTL capabilities for using off camera.

This flash can also operate on 4 AA batteries and has a recycle time of about 3 seconds. It also includes a case, stand, bag, strap, and reflector.

    Sunpak 120J II Reviews

    120J II Flash Kit for Canon Cameras is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Powerful flash for shooting on location So far so good. It's pretty much what I expected. It's a powerful flash unit with an external battery pack. There are lots of different options for diffusion because of the removable diffuser and reflector. It's excellent value for the money, I think. A few small things I'd change... the manual is terrible. I haven't seen a manual translated into English this badly since the 1980s. It's practically gibberish. I guess this adds to the retro appeal of the unit. Also, the coiled cord is very tight and short. It would be nicer if it was longer or stretched more easily. Also, I'm told that standard Elinchrom accessories will not fit onto this unit because they changed the dimensions slightly from the original 120J. That seems like an unnecessary limitation.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Normal Lens Flash Nice build, Great that it uses AA batteries or power pack. The down fall is flash angle coverage.. 50mm on a full frame is about as wide as you get even with the diffuser.

    question

    how many flashes can fire the bulb in its life?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    I have a couple of its predecessor, the J120, where the flash bulb is still going strong after many years of use. Bare bulbs usually last a really long time and are easily replaceable. I did end up sending the new 120 j II flash back because the exposures on auto were not very consistent. On manual exposure mode the flash is pretty good especially if you consider the value of getting a small battery with it.
