Very good flashgun

brilliant flashgun with some great tricks up its sleeve.
I'm using this on a Sony @200, and its a brilliant flashgun with some great tricks up its sleeve.
In dark rooms, churches etc - set the camera to manual, set the flash to auto power, and auto zoom. Then dial in your shutter speed, aperture and ISO on the camera eg - f2.8, iso 100 & 100th sec. Despite the camera meter saying your images will be underexposed, the flashgun calculates & emits the perfect amount of light for correct exposure every time meaning you can keep the iso low and the image quality high.
Flash head rotates, High Speed sync for all speeds only works with the flash facing forward(ie not rotated or pointing upwards for bounce), otherwise it only syncs up to 160th sec (haven't found this to be an issue).
Remote trigger uses the popup flash in the camera, as stated on other reviews. Also, exposure assist light really helps speed up focusing in low light conditions
