    VS-210 Mini On-Camera Auto Flash is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 10.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bolt Flash Just what I needed for my Sony nex 6. Don't use a lot of flash but this fits the bill perfectly . It works on the camera& also off camera with the on camera flash. Great

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for film I'm using the flash on my Minolta srt-102. The original flash I'd purchased for the camera years ago did not allow for bounce falsh as does this unit. I tested settings using my digital camera and am eager to see how the developed film is. I have no doubt that it will be great. My $ ETTL Canon flash is much better at singling out the subject of the photo and making automatic adjustments... But for $ this unit is great! I'm very pleased.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great unit, love the bounce feature Quite a bargain for the price and the size! I enjoy using the bounce feature. I have placed a small white card behind the head to add a bit of sparkle forward. The auto modes are useful. only they need to be calibrated. I found that the 2 setting is more like f3.5 and the 4 setting is f5.6 (with ISO 100). Overall, I am very happy and this is the flash I take with me when I pack lightly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go small and be awesome This flash is as simple as it gets. I purchased this to use as off camera lighting for a point and shoot Lumix. It fires, it bounces and it can be gelled. I use it with two other small no-name flashes and a Radiopopper trigger which I also recently acquired from B&H. While not a professional level flash, you can still make great portraits in tight spaces.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A lot for its size I bought this to use while I waiting on a TTL flash to become available for my Fuji camera. It's an amazing product. Lots of output for its size. Recycle time is a bit slow (only 2 AA batteries power the flash), but output is consistent. There is enough power to use for bounce flash. Too bad the head doesn't swivel. But for $? Great unit!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from VS-210 Mini On-Camera Auto Flash The good stuff small, light, easy to have in the bag, inexpensive. The not-so-good worked fine during testing...then would occasionally fire on its own...twice while on the camera. Then it fired off the camera. Not good at all. It will be returned. Rating would go higher IF it worked properly. So maybe next time...

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not Bad!!! Works great. The front of the flash head is a little short by 1/2 for add-on modifiers. The sync socket is not a standard 3.5 mm, it's about half that size. Which means you'll have to buy a hot shoe with a 3.5mm jack to use it off camera, and a longer sync cord. The sync cord provided is only 12 1/2 long.
