    i got this model for not having wireless and slaving master and a whole bunch of other features that i will never use .. since i am just a hobbby shooter .. just need a flash ,,, compared to my pentax flash ,, using the same batteries ,, this recharges the cap way faster that i don't have to wait to keep shooting .. nice ..

    Build quality is good, I was a little bit skeptical, but initial indoor tests are simply amazing. I’m sure a professional photographer can achieve same results w/o the contribution of the AI component, but the simplicity and the outcomes are truly remarkable.

    I bought this for my wife and she absolutely loves it. The ability to bounce the light exactly where it needs to be in a split second makes this unit well worth it. And let’s not forget happy wife equals happy life!

    Great AI based bounce calculations, Great for someone just getting into flash bounce . Also great for experienced people as it gives you the peace of mind and helps focus on the concepts rather than bounce angles

    I am really enjoying this flash. If figures out the angles for me. It helps increase the look of my indoor shots. I recommend this to any beginner or somebody that wants to take Beautiful shots indoors without all the guesswork.

    I just bought the flash and it is extremely impressive!! It is almost like I am cheating at flash photography!! Only thing in testing with aperture priority is you may have to do post processing but most of the shadows are eliminated.

    If you are interested in the auto bounce feature, check the list of compatible cameras first. I up graded my camera to be able to use this feature and it was well worth it.

    My wife and I is this on our Canon cameras to bounce light and it creates a great effect when we want to light our subjects with light behind them.

    I love this flash if it’s the only flash I’m using however it does not sync with the 430ex RT-III or 600 RT so it doesn’t help when it comes to off camera flash

    Takes a little to get used to, but made well and takes great photos on a 7d mII. Price is rather high for a flash, hopefully it holds up over the long-term.

    This is a fantastic flash. Easy to use, light weight. And the slide lock is so much easier then the screw on ones.
