Best Buy Customer Reviews

I Got a Defective Flash2 Posted by: from: New York, NY on I bought this after reading the good reviews. Unfortunately I didn't have a chance to test it and when I needed it for a friend's wedding, it didn't work. I thought the problem was with my batteries, I replaced them with a new set of batteries but it still didn't work. I had to return it. I guess if you're lucky & it's working, then it's fine and not expensive. But I think I will buy something else that's more expensive and reliable.

Great for the price5 Posted by: from: buffalo grove, illinois on I am far from a pro so I didn't want to spend too much on a flash. Not all flashes will fit the a6000 so this was my best choice. I am very happy with it. It fits my needs perfectly.

A low cost alternative to the brand name flash4 Posted by: from: San Fransisco Bay Area, CA on This flash works as well as the Sony brand-name flash, but costs a lot less. It does fill flash very well, and functions nearly the same as the Sony unit.
