Sunpak 120J II overview

  • 1Description

Utilizing a bare-bulb design, the Sunpak 120J II Flash brings users power with a guide number of 177' at ISO 100 and a versatile 360° light similar to that of larger strobe and lighting fixtures. It also includes a reflector for more control over coverage and placement of your light. The flash is compatible with Canon E-TTL / E-TTL II and offers tilt and rotation for bounce functionality and more control over where light will fall. Also, it has wireless TTL functionality that enables triggering of the unit off-camera.

An LCD control panel is available on the back of the unit for making adjustments to settings and operation in manual mode. This provides power options from 1/1 to 1/128 as well as flash compensation from -2 to +2 EV. The 120J II also runs on 4 AA batteries or an optional external power pack which can reduce the recycle time from a standard 3 seconds to just 1 second. Additionally, it comes with a stand, strap, and case.

    Sunpak 120J II reviews

    120J II Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 1.8 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not reliable I've used this for several weeks now in all modes and do not find it to be reliable at all. You cannot get it to properly compensate exposure in ETTL. The manual mode will not change the output at all. It is not something I can trust for a pro job at all. The manual is mostly useless as so many are. Going to return for refund tomorrow.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from useless Used with Canon 5D2 in TTL mode, all images severely underexposed. Max flash compensation has zero effect. Guide nr 177 hard to believe as max intensity is quite weak.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Use it in manual This flash has a lot of versatility and power but you need to use it on manual mode. Most users today rely on TTL without really understanding that the implementation of TTL by various manufacturers is highly variable. Sunpak is not one that has done it well in this unit and it magnifies the inherent weakness of TTL. TTL is theoretically better than the earlier auto mode with a sensor on the flash itself. What is problematic for TTL is that this makes it much more sensitive to scene changes. E.G. a bride and groom portrait can already be a challenge for auto exposure with a brilliant white dress adjacent to a black tuxedo. With TTL any slight subject movement can result in a different exposure despite the fact that scene has not really changed. Auto flashes meter from a wider area and thus average the scene exposure to reduce variability from shot to shot. This flash is a great unit for OCF and users who take a bit of time to learn how to use manual flash exposure mode. The ability to use a variety of modifiers with greater efficiency than a speedlight is a huge win. As it uses AA batteries instead of Li_ion batteries for longer life, I mark it down.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nothing Like The Original SUNPAK 120J New version Sunpak 120J II is extremely inconsistent. If you can get your hands on the original 120J you'll be way better off! It is kind of hard to find in excellent condition BUT you can still find them!
