I was shooting an event at the Mall of America and instead of using my manual external flash I popped into Best Buy and saw that they basically had one alternative to the Sony branded (expensive) options for my Sony A6000. I was skeptical as it was an Insignia brand which can vary pretty widely on quality and figured if it wasn't good I would just bring it back. My first surprise was that it only took 2 batteries. I'm used to the four battery set up or even external power set ups. I thought, great, this thing is a toy at best but again, might as well give it a shot.
The build quality is actually really nice, up there with any branded equipment I've had and it comes with the standard packaging stuff. I turned it on, fired off a few full power shots to form the capacitor (old habit) and decided to see what it would do. I was in the middle of the seating 30-50 feet away from the action depending on who was speaking and how far they wandered on the stage. It did exactly what it was supposed to. The recycling times were no bad and I used it sparingly as I don't generally use flash during speaking gigs because it distracts everyone but I have to say, for what I wanted it to do, it did it easily and well. No complaints. It's light, compact, isn't bigger than the A6000 I was using it on and I would recommend it to anyone that needs a casual punch of light. It may not be up to a hard usage task like a fashion show or something but then again, neither are most units.
