I purchased this because it seemed to be a very good flash for the price, I expected it to be built cheaply or something for the price but this is definitely a good strong flash to use especially for portraits. Some people said it was difficult to screw the flash onto the hotshoe securely but i dont have any problem with it it seems fine to me. recycle time can be slow unless batteries are new, HIGHLY recommend getting high power batteries such as NiMh's to cut down on the charge time between shots. other than that it provides an excellent fill light for portaits as well as product photo with the correct setup you can do a lot with this. if you had two of these you could use one as side lighting off camera and one on camera thought that was a cool feature, that of course works with any flash just put it on slave.
As always, delivery was quick so I was able to use it right away. I must admit that I've been unexpectedly ecstatic with this flash. I use it with a Canon XS/1000D and it has worked surprisingly well with my interior photos when the subject is all that well illuminated. The flash has a built-in diffuser & reflector which is an added bonus since you don't have to buy those items separately. The only thing I don't like is that the battery lid is somewhat awkward and could potentially break easily if you are not cautious when opening or closing it. Aside from that, the flash is a great cost effective alternative to the Canon flash as it does about everything the same including pivoting, rotating & having the capability of being a slave flash.
