Additionally, this output can be adjusted from 1/1 to 1/128 power in 1/3 and 1/2 EV steps.

Full bounce and swivel lighting is possible due to -7 to 90° tilt and 270° of rotation with the locking flash head. The flash can also be triggered optically with either instant sync or skip pre-flash options for simpler off-camera firing. A built-in PC sync port further enhances the flash's connectivity and a Multi mode allows for stroboscopic lighting effects. The flash runs on 4 AA batteries and has a recycle time of about 3 seconds. It comes with a protective case and a stand.

Does this flash work well with a Canon SL1?

This flash works well with the Canon Rebel SL1 camera, but keep in mind this is a manual exposure flash, and does not support any TTL communication.

question

Is this flash compatible with pocket wizards?
Asked by: Anonymous
Yongnuo's radio system will not work with PocketWizard radio system, but if the flash has a built-in PC or sync terminal, you can connect PocketWizard remotes to the flash. If not, then they would need B&H # WIHSFM3 or B&H # IMMHSF1PW to connect the PocketWizard radio remote to the flash. Then it would work like normal.

question

I see in the overview that there is a socket for the SF-18C or SF-17C external power packs. These have gone out of production and I can't find them anywhere. Is there any other external power pack that is compatible with these flashes?
Asked by: D F.
Being that this flash has a high voltage connection similar to those found on Canon speedlites, you could use the Bolt Cyclone PP-310 Compact Power Pack and BO-CZ Canon Flash Cable Kit B&H # BOPP310Q, as an alternative to the discontinued SF-18C and SF-17C battery packs. You would still need AA batteries in the flash to operate functions such as the LCD display. Please see the link below for reference.

question

Can this flash be triggered by the Fuji X100S or T in commander mode?
Asked by: Anonymous
This flash can be triggered using the optical slave mode, or by separate radio transmitters. Both methods will utilize manual power control, as opposed to TTL auto, which will not work. The optical slave mode, once turned on, will react to the on-board flash of the X100s.
