    Bower SFD52 reviews

    SFD52C Dual Intelligent Speedlight for Canon Cameras is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 19.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not bad The ring flash is cool and all but it's filter mount is small at 52mm. My main lens is 67mm so it shows too much to even use with the step rings. However it still works great on other lenses. The normal flash is just a standard manual ETTL compatible but overall I am satisfied for the price.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from well...half thumbs up So I purchased this flash for a fairly good price. The problem I ran into is that the main flash is just way too dim. Once you use it and you view the picture there is a distinct line between where the flash went and darkness..and where there is light it is just not cutting it. Although...the positive point is that I adore the ring flash, gives a beautiful light. So but I am going to end up buying another flash just because this one altogether is just not bright enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from best for your money I got this light not too long ago and as soon as I i received it in the mail I fell in love with this product I use it for lots of close up shots as well as just a regular external flash. Its a blast too use. The draw back is the the ring light threds are a little iffy when you put it on your lens. But over all great product

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice for the price I was looking for a macro ring flash for a while, I saw this combination, for the price it is great. What I do not like is not being able to control the flash output.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great performance for the price Bought this for a Canon XSi. My goal was to take macro picture for dental applications. The ring fixture works great, specially if you can adjust the flash intensity in your camera. Overall it works great. Just think that the unit is a bit too bulky and heavy, but since I'm using a tripod that's no problem.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from bang for your buck The ring flash worked fantastically for portraits and close up photos. The regular flash is powerful, and tends to lighten faces too much. For indoors I found myself using it strictly as bounce flash. Overall, this was a fantastic buy at the price!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Works nice for the price The flash works exactly as advertised. I have a 7d and has not given me any problems. The only down side is that the construction is pretty flimsy. One hard hit and something is going to crack.
