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.
I wish I would have spent a little more and gotten a better quality item. Batteries exploded in item. I only use new batteries and this has never happened to me before on any product. Now after I use I remove batteries. The item DOES WORK WELL though. So I can't fault it for that. However it seems rather flimzy and I wouldn't use it for out-and-about photography. It suits my needs for family gatherings or night parties, but if you can get a more expensive item I would recommend you do that.
