    Bower SFD680 reviews

    SFD680 Power Zoom Digital TTL Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 41.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Fried in a day! I bought for use at weddings. Its was nice, affordable, and cool features. I tested it indoors and worked well, but on its first day I out, I took about 150 shots. There was a drizzle for which I shielded the camera and wasn't even taking shots, but a few moments later it fried. You may think I let it drench, but no way I'd let my camera near water. So unless its overly sensitive to mositure, I don't understand why it fried. Its baby brother (SFD35C) worked better and longer and is still going. Maybe I should downgrade its replacement.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money This is my first shoe mount flash since I've gone digital. It has been great getting used to using one again. It is a fast flash, and though the description (and even the box) doesn't say so, it comes with a diffuser! I have enjoyed it so far and look forward to all it will allow me to do that I've been missing the last few years. Hope this is helpful.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it Not only is this the easiest and most cost efficient flash I have ever owned (i shoot weddings), but the customer service at Bower is fantastic. I had an issue with mine not syncing after a little incident that I had and they sent me a brand new one in one week and all I had to do is pay for shipping. You cannot go wrong with this flash for the price. 5 stars all the way.. Finally a company that understands the market!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from First Rate First Flash I am a professional photographer branching into portraiture for the first time, and after much research on the best, most affordable flash for my very small budget, I settled on this flash for my Canon 40D. Having not tried other shoe-mounted flashes, and having only used it a few times now, I thought this flash was reasonably sturdy, and performed well for my first portrait session. However, while simple to use, I found a little bit of wiggle room while mounted on the shoe, which to my novice mind may or may not be a problem. Recycle time is acceptable, and the flash is accompanied by a diffuser in the box. The full swivel head makes creative portable lighting possible, and for shutterbugs on a budget, this flash would be a good purchase.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Product I have had this product for a week now and have taken over five hundred plus pictures with it. So far I love the flash, I especially love the feature where you can choose the level of exposure you would like. I also like the diffuser that came with it. I do not have any complaints about the product so far and would recommend it to anyone.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flash I used this for a couple of fast paced concerts this past weekend and was impressed by its recycle mode. At one point I had my Canon 30D on sports mode and it snapped off three maybe four shots within a split second. I love that it keeps up with my lense as I zoom in it increases the projection of the flash and vice versa.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from very cheap flash I have had this flash for a few months the swivel on it is already broken and jammed up. The connection the the camera is very inconsistent. the camera usually does not pick up that the flash is attached. I have treated this flash with great care and it has broken regardless. It is not very sturdy however it is inexpensive which is what attracted me to it.
