Great compact flash unit
from Albuquerqe, NM
This is an excellent compliment to the on-camera flash. Bounce flash works very well, except that it can only rotate in one direction. Its small size and no-options operation makes it very useful for candid indoor shots and as a quick fill flash. Exposure compensation can be done with the camera controls, if needed. While not as versatile as the SB600 and higher models, I always carry it with me so it meets the best flash is the one that you have criterion.
Meets my needs and expectations.
