    Polaroid PL-126PZ reviews

    PL-126PZ Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 1.7 out of 5 by 3.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not waste your money. I am a semi-pro photographer. I dont do high end shoots, but I do get a paying gig taking headshots and events from time to time. So I need an external flash, but I dont make enough money to warrant getting one of those $400 Canon ones. So I wanted to spend in the $ range for a bounce flash.This seemed like a good buy, nice price, good power,and nice additions. I know that the life span could be an issue so I bought the two year protection plan, together both ran $. Perfect I thought.I got home, took three shots and then it stopped firing. Turned it off and on, changed the batteries. Nothing. So I take it back a few days later,...Second flash I get the day before I have to do a series of portrait shots. The day of the shoot I get about 20 shots on the second brand new flash then it stops working again. Good thing I was using a T2i and had the pop-up flash to finish next 100 shots with.Doing some research, and talking to the sales guy at B&H it seems spending $ and below you can pretty much expect them to die fairly easily. Anyway he suggested a SunPack flash for $. It's been a few days but it seems like it can last more than a few days like the Polaroid ones.It's worth the extra money to not have to return a flash after only a few shots each time. I gave it one star because you can't give a negative score.Avoid this flash at all cost.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great Value Mostly does what it claims and is remarkably similar to Canon flashes costing 2.5x more. However, does not recharge as fast as the Canon.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Works well...when it works. I am set to return this flash yet again. I bought it last week, came home and took three shots then it stopped firing.Took it back and ... exchanged the flash for a new one. ....I felt like I might have been one of those overly cautious people that I myself find annoying.Got home, took a few practice shots. Worked fine. Took the flash to a shoot and it worked great for about 30 shots or so then again stopped firing. When it works, it's a great flash especially for the price but then it's hard to say the price is reasonable since the thing seems to stop working after a small number of shots. ...this is now the second time I'll have to take time out of my day to exchange the flash. You can't put a price tag on reliability. I know it's not a Canon 580 or whatever but it's still not unreasonable to expect a $ flash to work for longer than an hour. I bought a two pack of flashes last yeat for 12 bucks on ...and they both work whenever I need them. Granted they're not great...but they fire. Doesn't matter if something is free, if it doesn't work you can't appreciate a low price.I've never written a review before but am so ticked off about this flash I decided to writ
