Bolt VX-710 Overview

The VX-710N TTL Flash for Nikon from Bolt is a dedicated flash for use with Nikon DSLR or point-and-shoot cameras. The VX-710N features a guide number of 164' at ISO 100 and an adjustable tilt head with six positions: -7 to 90°. The -7° downward tilt allows you to fully illuminate your subject when shooting close-up. You can also twist it to the left up to 90° and to the right up to 180°. It covers a 24-180mm range (in 35mm full frame format) and extends to 18-180mm with the diffuser panel in place. In auto mode the zoom range is stepless, it does not set at 24mm, 35mm, etc, but matches the exact focal length of the zoom lens for optimal lighting. The flash supports rear curtain synchronization for shooting at slower shutter speeds. The VX-710N is equipped with wireless (optical) manual slave function.

The VX-710N has an autofocus assist for low-light photography, and an automatic power-saving function that turns the flash off when it's inactive. It is powered by four AA batteries (not included), with a flash duration between 1/800 and 1/20,000 of a second. A convenient HV port allows you to connect the flash to an external power source, such as the Bolt Cyclone, for extended usage and faster recycling. The included stand allows you to set the flash up on a flat surface or to attach it to a tripod head, light stand, or clamp that has a standard 1/4"-20 mount.

 

Note:
The VX-710N flash is not compatible with Nikon Z series cameras in TTL mode.
This on-camera flash is fully compatible with Nikon i-TTL.
The guide number for this flash is 164' (50 m) at 50mm and ISO 100.
The adjustable six-position flash head can be tilted up -7-90°, left 0-90° and right 0-180°. It has an automatic and manual 24-180mm zoom head. The -7° downward tilt allows you to fully illuminate your subject when shooting close-up.
FV lock, red-eye reduction and flash exposure bracketing are supported if your specific Nikon camera has those functions.
The VX-710N is equipped with a wireless (optical) manual slave function, allowing you to fire the flash remotely. Using the optical slave feature, the VX-710N can be set to fire whenever it detects a signal from the master flash. This works optically - when one flash unit "sees" another flash firing, it will instantaneously fire along with it.
The 2.0" rear backlit LCD Display allows you to easily make adjustments in low light and clearly see what your flash is set to for accurate readings.
With eight different manual power levels you can easily change from full to 1/128 power and fine tune your levels in increments of 1/3.
With a built-in autofocus-assist beam you can shoot in low-light conditions, using the beam to aid your camera's AF modes.
A PC sync terminal and included 12" cable allows you to easily shoot with the VX-710N off of the camera for increased versatility.
An HV port on the side of the flash allows you to connect the VX-710N to an external power source, such as the Bolt Cyclone, for extended use and faster recycling time. The HV port utilizes a Canon CZ-type connection.
This flash supports rear-curtain sync.
A built-in reflector allows you to enhance the light coming from your flash and the diffuser panel, which extends the flash range to wide-angle 18mm, also softens the light for more flattering shadows and images.
Lock mode prevents inadvertent operation of the flash unit and overheating protection mode offers warnings when the flash is operating continuously with a chance of overheating and will temporarily disable the flash if temperatures are too high.
The automatic power-saving function turns the flash off to conserve power, allowing you to shoot longer.

Impressed by Bolt

This is my first advanced flash unit. I haven't tried all the features yet, and it has loads beyond what I am used to, but so far it has lived up to the advertising. Results are so much better than with just the built in flash on the camera. It does add noticeably more weight to the camera, if you will be carrying it around attached for any length of time.

Would buy again

Perfect perfect. It's not light by any means. But the power that comes from his speed light makes the weight minor.

I would buy another one

The flash has worked well in every situation I used it. Mounted on a Nikon D7100 the TTL worked flawlessly. Using Vello Captain flash triggers the flash worked great. It also worked flawlessly as an optical slave. I tried a cheaper import brand that did not work when mounted on my D7100. THe menus and instruction book are easy to read and understand. Like most I read a few pages of the manual and went about changing the settings on the flash easily. The only caveat with this flash is to obtain certain settings you must go to the nearest whole value then step up/down. E.G. to decrease exposure compensation by a third of a stop you have to decrease it by one whole stop then increase it by two thirds of a stop. A strange way to do things. that is really the only reason I have at this time for not giving it 5 stars. This flash seems well built - it is a large flash. The addition of a PC port and connection for a power supply are nice features for growth.

Inexpensive Flash for Nikon Cameras

I love it. Good quality materials, easy to use and well suited to Nikon cameras. I've been using it for 2 weeks now and had no problems with it whatsoever. I think it eats up less battery than the previous Nikkor Flash I had.

small and stunning

This flash is great for on-the-go projects. I've used it for portraits and architecture. It's powerful, easy to use, and perfect for adding a pop of light where you need it.

Stopped displaying ISO on multiple Canon DSLR

So far the flash works but the LCD display showed ISO values only for the first few minutes of operation and then never displayed again. Attached to multiple late model Canons (eos 80d etc), and the flash works but no ISO display. Makes me worry about reliability of the unit.

A Quality Product

I have owned this model for over 4 years and have used it in place of my Nikon Speedlites. I have used it at weddings where a fast recycle time is crucial. It is a very dependable product and has never failed to perform under heavy use.
