Deal Details

I was looking for a cheap flash since I'm new to photography. It has good reviews on Amazon. It's all manual and comparable to the yongnuo 560. It's about $7 off from normal price. Can order now but not available till the 23

Interesting ... been thinking of picking up a cheap flash to use on my GX1 & LX7. Looks like I could use this as a slave flash with my 420EX if I'm reading the description of the S2 Mode correctly. Or since I have a 60D, even use it a secondary slave, since the 420EX can be fired from the pop-up flash on the 60D.

Not even close to $40.

It just depends on what you want to do. I have two Yongnuo 560's and really enjoy them, use them mostly for some studio and object shooting. I also have a Canon 270EXII, 420EX, 550EX and a 580EXII. If you want to shoot random flash shots of family and such, it's probably easier if you have fully automatic flash metering. But these will work too, might help if you have a little knowledge of how flashes work to make this work for you.

Slave function works perfectly with a 420EX. Remember though that these don't work like a slave with a real master. As in, they won't measure and regulate their output instantly. You just set the power on it, and that's how it will fire. You will have to correct your exposure or the power on the flash to get things right.

Like the old saying goes...you never going to learn if you don't do it yourself. Nice to have ttl but I think I will learn more with the manuals

Thanks for verifying that. Pretty much exactly what I'd want for small studio stuff, as setting up the exposure manually is really the preferred way to go. Be a little rougher using it for on-the-go shots, but still, nice to have that option when shooting with the GX1 or LX7. The 420EX is just way too big on those (plus it looks ridiculous; not that this one wouldn't, too, though).

Was planning to get a couple of single-bulb fluorescent lights for continuous lighting when doing studio shots (mostly product shots for the business inside a 2' x 2' x 2' softbox cube), but I think this should work just as well for the most part.

Only problem with using both this and the 420EX as slaves is that I have to use the pop-up on the 60D for the master, and that probably isn't going to give the best results. Might be time to pick up one of those cheap remote trigger/receiver combos instead, too.

I have one and it's exceptional, especially for $40. With some practice you will instinctively know what power to set the flash for certain conditions and camera settings. Check youtube for great flash tutorials.

One annoyance is that the white pop-out bounce card will probably retract back into its sleeve and you won't be able to get it out. Happened to me the first day I owned it.

Just remember to always bounce the flash off of walls or ceiling (unless you're going for a look) and it will Improve your indoor shots tremendously.

It is extra useful for increasing shutter speed and bouncing off the ceiling to capture fast moving kids with no blur at low iso. Remeber to NEVER flash a baby or youngster directly in the eyes.

In for one!

I've been wanting a flash for years but have been too cheap to buy one. I really wanted one that supports TTL metering, but I can't resist trying this one since it's so cheap and has good reviews.

Looks good. But it only has 3 months warranty? The reviews on Amazon seems to favor this speedlite by a pretty wide margin. The performance seems to be great, but can anyone here also vouch for the build quality?
