    Bolt VM-260 reviews

    VM-260 Flexible Macro Flash is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Flexible Flash with 14 Bendable Stalks Review of Bolt VM-260 Flexible Macro Flash. I specialize in macro, extreme macro, macro photo stacking, and various other subjects requiring clean, balanced, consistency and very flexible ranges of volume of light. My work as a matter of fact required specific lighting and the Bolt VM-260 does it all. I have many light sources that are artificial and this flash VM-260 by Bolt is close to the best most consistent light source I have found to date. The powerful twin tube flashes do not overpower but blend into what I do and the 14 flexible arms allow me to put my light exactly where I want it. The additional light allows me a deeper DOF and bright work. The brightness levels have 8 settings and this flash is a master or slave with the push of a button. The unit stays very active battery wise and has a power saving function that is easy to release with a push of the Test button. Great unit for beginner to advance and I highly recommend it to all who need proper light fill. Steve Baslow - DSLR Photography

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Been waiting 45 years I've been hanging out for such a flash for ever. It works really well for macro. It is encreadably adaptable being able to move the flashes around. I have around 6 macro lighting setups including a ring flash but this is far more dependable. It's small and light and easy to pack away. Build quality is what you might expect from a McDonald's happy meal. Had to press the on Botton for 5 seconds to get it to go on.. Buy the unit with the understanding it's Expendable. You can buy 4 of these for an auto ring flash. I'll buy a new one when I destroy this flash. I've used it in the field with a macro lens and on a photo rail with a super macro. Lighting is great. It's my new best friend and it's going to have lots of adventures.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from does not work After using this less than a dozen times it quit. Purchased it as a Christmas gift before Thanksgiving so that helped make it ineligible to return to B&H. Will pursue sending to the manufacturer under their warranty. Would not purchase this item again.
