    Bolt VS-260SMI reviews

    VS-260SMI Compact On-Camera Flash for Sony Cameras is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 7.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great flash for the A7 cameras I have an A7R and found Sony/Nissan flashes to pricy for my pocketbook. I ran across the Bolt and, based on the comments of others, I decided to get one. Right out of the box it has worked great. I'm not sure I have all the settings on my camera correct, but it does indeed flash at different powers and has done so with every shutter click. And I'm really glad I got the off-camera cord (from Vello) which gives me total control over angle, power, and dispersion. Great product.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice little flash for the price! I'm using this with my Sony A6000 so I wanted something small. and since I won't be using it too much I didn't want to spend a lot. It was on sale also. Seems to have a decent range. No controls on the back but the camera controls worked fine. It says something about wireless but I could not make if flash except when in the hotshoe.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from The one I got doesn't work with the a6000 or a7rII I bought this to have a small flash fill for my Sony bodies, a6000 and a7rII. Both cameras told me that is is an incompatible device, no TTL or power output controls at all, useless!
    Date published: 2017-05-16
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from true deception doesn't really work with the a7s I or II, it flashes but it does not calculate well the lighting with this camera plus it is made of terrible plastic. Mine broke on the 3rd use, best to invest a bit more money on a better flash.
    Date published: 2018-02-27
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Small and handy flash I am using the Bolt on a Sony a6000. It works fine. I opted for this flash because of the tilt-head, which allows for bounce off of ceilings. The size is nice. Be mindful that it is not too powerful. Very simple operation.
    Date published: 2017-05-23
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not work with Sony A7R II My Sony A7R II detects the flash unit (flash icon displayed in viewfinder), the flash test and auto focus-assist light work, but camera will not trigger the flash. Contacting Sony and B&H.
