I very rarely leave reviews but on this occasion, i had to!
I've never been a fan of flash photography but that's because i never understood it. ISO levels, triggers, speedlite, continuous lighting etc etc. What to use? How to use it? Is it compatible with my camera? it was all a bit of a minefield!
That said i watched some videos on YouTube by "thatnikonguy" he's a bit of a creep with the models but never the less gets some good results, theres a video up for single portrait lighting where he uses a well naturally lit room, one model on a stool, this very flash, a trigger, umbrella and a white wall. The results are superb! I just had to try it!
I'm using a Nikon D5100 with a Nikon 18-200mm AF-S VRII lens (so there is the most expensive bit, around £400 body and a £620 lens) but i'm assuming if you are looking at this flash you already have a camera! Anyway, I got a Yongnuo YN-560 II speedlite, Yongnuo RF-603N triggers, decent light stand and umbrella for the grand total of £81. It came to £98 including postage. Best money i've spent! both flash and triggers worked out of the box, the slave mode on camera is good, i didn't have to change any settings or try and configure them just plug and play! Awesome!
Another cool feature on the triggers is you can use them as a remote shutter! Anyway this simple and cheap bit of kit has opened up my photography no end! I always used continuos lighting now i just don't need to!
100% recommend this. If i was being picky only thing i don't like is the flash uses AA's and the triggers use AAA's but i've now bought recharagebles for both so no worries anymore!
Hope this helped.
