    Sunpak PZ40X II reviews

    PZ40X II Flash for Sony/Minolta Cameras (Silver) is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from For A33 and A55 owners! I bought this flash as a result of two things:A had bought a bower flash, which claimed Sony Alpha compatibility, only (after much research) did I find out the the SLT models (A33 and A55 respectively) use different metering and the majaority of 'Sony Alpha flashes' do not work at all, they will not trigger.Second was the price. Having had a chance to use this flash, I am extremely happy with it.The power is decent, no wow factor, but it gets the job done.The size and built are quite good, mountains away from anything else sub-$.Features are great; Manual power and zoom are included on-flash, effective distance is shown on the LCD (yes, it has one, it's backlit).Most of All other reasons to like this flash however, is it's A33/55 compatibility. Note that only P/A/S/M Auto/+ are officially supported, however, most scenes - for the 10-20 people out there who use those anyways - seem to work fine; I don't use scenes so I haven't tested those much.One thing that bothered me was the Hotshoe fit, which wasn't all that tight. It has a lock-ring, so it's easy to ignore, but I would have liked it tighter.One thing that stood out was it's ability (with ADI) to get just the right amount of light, looking as natural as a shoe-flash can.If you own an A33/55 and need a great flash to start out, or a lightweight backup for the bag ask yourself whether you need huge power, or high speed sync. If you don't, save some cash and get this one. at $$, I sure feel like I've stolen something!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Alternative to Sony/Minolta Flash This unit seems to provide the same variable flash features for Sony and Minolta digital SLR cameras for less than half the price of Sony/Minolta flash units. It also uses only two AA batteries instead of four. It works fine on my Sony a550 camera and I would recommend it to others with Sony alpha bodies or Minolta 5D/7D SLRs.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not satisfied at all I used it so far 3/4 times since I bought it. It does not fire when flash head is more than 30 degree up, so bounce flash is not possible. Very disappointed with the quality of this flash.
