Holga 235B reviews

Holgon Manual Electronic Flash is rated 4.1 out of 5 by 15.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cheap Flash For a Cheap Camera Considering the price, it does what its supposed to do. While a pivot would be nice, for the price it is not expected. the flash puts out a lot more light than expected, probably too much, a diffuser is probably going to be necessary. A output adjuster would actually be more useful than a pivot. But again the the thing is so inexpensive, you cant ask too much from it. For the price if I use it gives you one good shot, its worth its price. You might as well pay the small amount for the extended warranty, considering the batteries you put in the flash will cost more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple strobe for a simple camera This flash does a wonderful job of not only evening out lighting using the Holga 120N, but it can be used to create some pretty neat effects. The exposure table on the back is helpful and it provides adequate output. The recharge time is 4sec. with charged batteries. Totally worth the price as an accessory for the Holga 120N. The only thing that prevents this from being an amazing little strobe is that the head does not pivot.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I LOVE this little flash! I needed a small flash that didn't require a whole lot of money to do some outside work. When I first got it, I assumed that I had to position it up close to my subject due to the price and the guide number. MAN, WAS I OFF ON THAT ONE!!!! That little flash blasted its way into instant respect, and from that moment on, I knew I had made a great purchase! I immediately ran to my car, grabbed my small umbrella, snapped again, and the results were astonishing! No, its not the big-dollar titan that pivots, adjusts, or senses, but if all you need is a good little powerful flash, then this little beauty is worth every penny. Just be careful not to handle it too roughly. It can't take any abuse. However, if you take care of it, it will certainly take care of you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It fit the need I had I bought two of them and rewired the short adapter cables to a relay to trigger as lightening. I was using them as a special effect in a show. It comes with a short adapter cable for remote operation. The hot shoe is generic and will work with older cameras. Requires 4 AA bateries.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Cheap but low quality. Flash had a short, possible in battery compartment. Batteries would get hot and would wear out quickly. Tried to move battery tabs in compartment to prevent shorting/cross contact only to have one snap off. Now it will no longer function.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Does the trick I bought this to use on my Holga so I could take lomography snaps indoors. It's no Canon Speedlite, but it does the trick. Plus it works with a bunch of my vintage cameras via PC sync. Too bad the head doesn't rotate for bounce.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome! I use this flash for super overcast days and at night. It's great to have a little additional light on the occasion I need it. It's easy to use and batteries seem to last really long.
