    High quality, but very complicated

    I bought this for my sony A7RII and it is bright! So far it works great and has a lot of functionality to it. I was able to also use it as a remote flash controller to signal my other sony flash. The great thing about this is that it has both manual mode and also TTL (which means it works with the camera to determine proper exposure). Its definitely a good step in the right direction for more professional photographers who need that level of control and versatile functionality. BUT that also means the product is more complicated to use. You really need to read the manual and practice with it a lot to understand and utilize it to its fullest capability. Im no dummy but so far I have not learned how to use it well. Part of the learning curve is that the user interface is far from user friendly/intuitive. That's why I cant give it a full 5 stars.

    Bought this for my son and looked around for a long time before deciding on an OEM flash. Make no mistake, it is expensive - more than many other options, but what struck me was the video/modeling light, the native flash Sony proprietary shoe (multi interface) - and most of all, the unique "quick shift" rotating flash head. When you shoot portraits, you can rotate the entire flash head keeping the light in the horizontal position. Bought for use on a Sony A7ii.

    I wanted more flexibility when using my Sony A6000. Though the integrated flash onto the camera is fine for many instances, this flash is full featured for the medium to heavy user of shots requiring flash. A great flash for a novice to a heavy user. Have fun playing with the thing. The included case protects the flash. Make sure you look carefully for all the included accessories within the case. Requires four AA batteries, advanced lithium are best.

    Great multipurpose flash

    The flash works great as a stand alone or in combination with other light sources, as it is capable of triggering other wireless flash devices. The light is much stronger than it claims to be, which is great, but plan on bouncing the light off an umbrella or using a heavy matting filter.

    Awesome Powerful Flash

    This more powerful flash (greater than the HVLF32M) is great for larger areas, has easy-to-use functionality, and works great off-camera. I use this particular flash especially for all the real estate work I do. It is a pretty heavy flash since it uses 4 AA batteries, but I couldn't be happier.

    This is a great flat for the Sony A7 series of cameras. The size is perfect. I also like the flexibility of how this flash swivels. You can bounce it even when you rotate in to portrait mode. It also has an LED light if you need some extra light while recording video.

    New Twist on Bounce Flash

    I have paired the with my Sony A6000 and the TTL work without fail. Also easy to go into manual mode ad control the flash output. The most unique feature is the entire head swivels completely from right to left while the flash orientation remains the same.

    I've had good luck so far using this flash as both a receiver and transmitter. It syncs with any wireless Sony flash and has more than adequate adjustments to allow for anything from subtle to extreme light filling.
