Andy, From Nottijngham

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Great product, and the left/ right twist swivel in addition to the normal backward swivel is really useful, something so simple yet Canon & Nikon do not include on their speedlites.
High recommended

steve, Barnstaple keen amateur photographer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very powerful, integrates well with camera, exposures accurate. Versatile - very much like the way that the head swivels to allow bounce flash in both landscape and portrait modes.
Bad points:
Heavy, feels unbalanced on camera (an SLT A55V). Distinctly not beautiful!

Oliver, Leeds

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
looks fantastic, powerful, creates good effects and is an excellent flash unit.
Bad points:
doesn't fit as tightly as you may like on top of the camera (alpha 300 for me) and as such feels a little loose/vunerable.
Instruction manual isn't exactly great for learning from.

Michael, Surrey Experienced amateur. Still learning.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very effective and adaptable wireless flash enables one to avoid blown highlights, obtrusive shadows etc. Gives much more pleasing effects than on-board flash. The high power output is a boon when using reflected flash.
