I use my PZ42X for general indoor photography. I like its compact size, ease of use, and versatility. However, I am a little disappointed in its recycling time, as it is much slower than I expected from a Sunpak, even with fresh batteries.

Well built, and has all the features I wanted. Nothing seems to be missing.

I use this flash when I am going somewhere indoors where I cannot bring my lighting equipment (obviously) and it doesn't seem to take much battery for each flash. The flash is so precise that it doesn't seem to jarring to people being photographed, like some flashes do. So far haven't had any complaints about it.

Good light, but slow recharge

It has a good light and speed, but the recharge time is slow when you have to take lot of photos and need to change the batteries again and again.

question

Will this flash work fully automatic with Canon sx50hs
Asked by: Anonymous
The particular version on the link you selected is for Nikon brand cameras, and is not compatible with your Canon SX50 HS camera. Sunpak does offer the same model in a Canon version which is compatible with your camera. See the link below for details:http://bhpho.to/1bS01ya

question

I have a Canon 80D. The PZ42X flash will not flash. I am getting a the following message Menu not availble. FLash is off or unsupported, or an accessory is attached . A Cano logo flash works without issue. Does anyone with a Canon 80D have this flash, and if so, does it work?
Asked by: Anthony C.
Fortunately, we have both items on display in the store. Unfortunately, after testing, the flash will not work with the 80D. Tested the flash with 7D mk 1 and 2 and it worked fine. Can't say what the problem in communication is.
