    Bolt VS-260 reviews

    VS-260N Compact On-Camera Flash for Nikon Cameras is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simple, well-made, functional Use this on my Nikon D3200, and it's everything I had hoped for and expected. Simple operation, well-made, great price. Gets the job done much better than the built-in flash. On my first shoot, I shot way over 100 flash shots, 15 seconds or so apart, and I never had to wait for a ready light, and the batteries never slowed me down. I wanted to quickly capture the content of a bunch of books, i used a Gorilla pod attached to a file cabinet as a copy stand, shooting down towards the floor, I flipped pages with one hand and fired off the shots with the other. Glad I made the choice to get this one, instead of a cheaper or more expensive flash.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from If you have a D-500 you need this. I purchased this flash to use with my, not so flashy Nikon D-500.(Why did Nikon do that?) It has more power than the on-camera flash on a D-750 and works with the rest of my Nikon flashes. It is wide enough to use with my Nikon 24-14mm lens with the only issue being a slight shadow of the lens shade at the bottom of the frame at 14mm.The flash is small enough to fit in your pocket and I gave it 5 stars because it fills the bill for my needs. (A nice fill-in flash to take advantage of the suns position outdoors and indoors when you don't want to hall a bag full of gear).

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Compact and efficient This little unit does everything expected of it and a little more. The adjustable head is great for bounced flash in a clinch. I have even used it for macro work.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bolt VS-260N This flash does not have enough power to provide proper exposure for F5.6 and narrower apertures. Totally useless for bounce back use. Built quality is like a toy. I lost return shipping. Neewer is about the same price and working like original flashlight. For this Bolt VS-260N, thumb down. Waste of my time and money.
