powerful but poor battery door design

By kai

This should be the most powerful Speedlight in the world. Let me know if there is another Speedlight output more power than this. and it is quite inexpensive. the drawback is the poor design of battery door. I have 3 of these light that the battery door can no longer closed. since the cost is low I just buy new ones.

Great Manual Flash

I purchased this flash because my expensive Canon flash died, and I didn't want to spend a huge amount on another name-brand flash.� I have used this flash once, outdoors in bright sun, and it worked perfectly.� It is well made, recharges quickly, and is easier to operate than the Canon flash was.� However, this is a manual flash, which means you have to set the power yourself.� It is not TTL, so it may not be suitable for everyone.

Flash is ok but is a mess

It doesn't work with 622 tx system, and doesn't work with 622 tx+622 ( canon ) on HSS. to be honest you have to buy a 560 tx that does not work with HSS and has 105 mm max zoom to work with. In the end you have features that you can't use ... but the power is good...

The flash performs as advertised, and so far I'm quite happy with it.

Exceptional value for the money

Quite a full-featured flash unit. Takes just a little getting used to the controls but once experienced its no problem. I like to use camera-flashes as off-camera accept lights. A benefit of this one is the built-in optical slave, and the fact that the unit notifies you (with red flashing lights on front) when its in the receptive mode. It could be used with a master TTL flash on camera by making it unresponsive to the pre-flash, then testing or measuring for the needed amount of power on the secondary. I do think the guide number is a bit over-rated (much more like a typical camera flash output than a superpower). My only reason for four stars instead of five? The manual is poorly translated and takes brainwork to puzzle out. Otherwise, for the cost, you really cant beat it.

Love This Flash!

By Lee
Rated 5 out of 5

Bought this flash for off camera location lighting. I find it to be well made, easy to use, and very reliable. I triggered mine with Pocket Wizards; one in a 24 inch portable soft box and one as a rim light. They worked flawlessly! I bought 3 of them and plan on adding more. I have not purchased the controller. I have several Pocket Wizards and like to use them because I can trigger strobes, flashes, and other brands of speed lights together. I did not purchase the ETTL version because I only use manual and this fit my needs very well. I am astonished at such a low price point for the quality of this item and I recommend these to anyone needing, or wanting to get into, the use of multiple off-camera speedights.

question

Does it rotate 360 or 270 ?
Asked by: Mafdy A.
I am confused by the two previous answers. The flash rotates 180 to the left and 180 to the right. I would have thought that means it rotates 360. Combined with the 0-90 tilt, there is no direction in the upper hemisphere that it cannot be pointed.
