    PZ42X TTL Flash for Sony/Minolta DSLR Cameras is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 11.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Flash I use this flash with my Sony A700 and wow is it a great flash. I'm very pleased at how the flash works seamlessly with the camera. It is also very quite and it recycles very quickly. It gets a little heavy after awhile but what flash wouldn't. It is great for the price. ...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good product Over all, a good product. A little slow recovery time when shooting quick movement shots.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good purchase for beginners As an amateur SLR owner I can say PZ42X TTL Shoe Mount Flash worked as I was expecting. I didn't want to buy the Sony one which is significantly higher in price. It fit my Sony A 500 very well and it does what is meant to do, help on lighting specially in dark situation such as night and indoors. The flash swivels very well giving you the option to bounce light which is a plus. Here is how it can be improved: It's a little heavy, when mounted on the camera you hands will get tiered. Works wonders on a tripod though. Recovery is slow. If you are doing multiple shots at once, don't count on it. It will only flash for the 1st one. It overheats. The instructions clearly say not to leave it on for more than 10 minutes because it can over heat. I obey and shut it off, therefore can't really say it has overheated on me. Overall I will recommend this flash to a friend who is starting and want to improve its night/dark photography. Eventually I'll invest on a higher quality flash.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice alternative to the expensive SONY Works great. I looked at the SONY flash. Its was a little more then I wanted to spend. This Sunpak flash works great. Build quality very good. Shoe mount solid. Would give 5 stars if it had wireless.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! I purchased this unit for personal use and have found that it works great. I still need to spend time with the settings, but the pics so far have been good.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent for an amateur I ordered this to use with my new SONY A55 since the features fit my budget compared to the SONY flash units. The build seems decent for the price. The head swivels a little to easily and the battery door is somwhat flimsy. But than again I don't abuse my equipment! However I found that the flash does NOT work with the A55. It zooms in and out nicely and can make a correct exposure if you stay at an extended zoom. But when you try to go medium to wide it flashes at FULL power and overexposes the picture. I tried all settings on the camera and on the flash itself with the same results. I checked the SUNPAK website it shows it compatible with all the SONY dslrs however the new SLT A33 & A55 are not listed. I did test the unit out on a friends a700 and it worked like a charm. Guess I will have to splurge for the SONY or a METZ Mecablitz which is compatible but triple the price !!!!!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A good flash for the money I have been looking for a bounce flash for my a500 for shooting candids at events. This one does a great job.
