I bought one the other day. It's an ok low end flash. No manual control but it's a bit of fun and you can't get a cheaper dedicated flash.
#3
If you're after cheap off camera flash they were also doing the non-dedicated version for £29. As said, no manual control but for the price?
#4
Don't forget the Quidders !
#5
Don't forget the code QUIDCOFIVE when checking out (5% off), plus also go via Quidco for another 3%. Plus bear in mind it's free delivery at Jessops right now.

Super price for an average flash!

Thanks to OP for pointing out this deal.

Not suitable for my camera but just ordered their little flash for fill-in work at a few pennies over £11 delivered with Quidco on top. Got to be happy with that! :thumbsup:

Is it not - http://www.jessops.com/online.store/categories/Accessories/Flash/Flashguns/products/Jessops/Flashgun%20100M%20With%20Hot%20Shoe%20%20PC%20Cord-18572/Show.html

That's a flash.

Canon model not for use with 40D.

You know what I have !
#11
Just to remark on the model which is identical for the Canon, I would suggest to try before you buy! I got it free when I purchased my Canon 400d and I am currrently looking around for a Canon one! It either produces enough light to blind the man on the moon or slows down the exposure so no decent pictures can be obtained. I actually e-mailed Jessops who replied agreeing with my comments. If anyone knows if I am using this wrong and you have one then feel free to correct me! Sorry OP I know you posted the Nikon version but guessing the quality is the same!
#12
Would this be compatible with the Nikon D60?
#13
could somebody please clarify if this is compatible with the D40X ? Thanks

it receives a poor review here
#15
not available for home delivery any more
yes its compatible with D60
#16
Didnt go for one. Price is good but might as well lash out a bit more to get a decent flash - this one doesnt really look that solid and the review didnt help its' case
#17
Now out of stock for delivery. :-(
#18
No manual control
Low guide number

Voted cold.

Not everything thats cheap is a bargain
#19
Personally I think this is worth £33 just for the fact you can tilt it and, therefore, bounce it. Worth the price if you find yourself using the on-board flash a lot indoors but aren't sure you want to fork out for a proper flash yet.

If you're still using on-bard and apprehensive about forking out for a good flash then buy one of these and point it straight up at the ceiling next time you're shooting indoors (providing it's not a strongly coloured ceiling or too high) and see the results. I have an SB-400 Nikon flash which also has no manual controls and cost more than double this and the indoor results are great vs before!

What mode are you shooting in? It should work fine on 'P' program mode, are you trying to shoot on AV or TV, not 100% what the flash/camera sych is but they usually top out at 1/250th.

I do have this flash for my 350d and use it as part of a multi-flash setup at times, it works OK but takes a bit of practice especially when bouncing. Whilst using the bounce I have mine set at +1 flash compensation (on the camera) and normally have to increase the ISO to 200 or 400 and my ceiling is only just over 9ft high! Give it a go experimenting costs nothing.

A flash is not as simple as sticking it on top and firing, they require thought as you are painting with their light :)

I wish they`d do a pentax/samsung one at this price!
#22
Why not buy a cheap manual flash off of ebay and use your camera on manual, it really isn't all that difficult, dedicated flashes aren't all they are cracked up to be TBH, I use my manual one quite frequently.....el cheapo Cobra MD210 or Miranda 630CD seem to work well.
#23
I;ve been tempted by this for a while (since the last post) but still not sure.

I have just started getting into my DSLR photography and have been taking more indoor photos than out - this flash seems like the ideal expansion for the money as the canon flashes are substantially more expensive but I am a bit worried about buying something that is just not going to do the job it's intended for!

I have a canon 450d witrh standard 18-55mm lens and a f1.8 50mm lens - anyone recommend or steer me away from this flash before it gets more expensive again?
#24
just bought one and the shop called 5 mins after i placed the order to say it was ready to collect - bargain (heat added) !

At 30 quid it is a bargain and although it wont match a canon flash it doesnt cost 200 quid either! Its a good starter, you didnt pay 500 quid for your first camera did you? Its a good place to start and practice technique then if you like it from there you could always upgrade at a later date. I would recommend a diffuser though
#26
I bought one before Christmas, it does the job for £30! For an amateur it is fine, a professional user would find its limitations un-acceptable (but a professional wouldn't buy a £30 flash). One piece of advice would be to fit a diffuser as straight on it is far too bright, I use a piece of tissue as a diffuser. It does a job........

Anyone know of any decent deals for a Sony flashgun?

I've found pointing it straight up and then using a bounce-card to be best. But I am a hack-amateur.

Hey, I've bought a Nikon D40X and my flatmate donated me his old Cobra MD210. I read somewhere I shouldn't use the flashgun with the camera unless they're compatible so as not to mess up the electronics on either. So I was wondering if you know if these two are compatible? Thanks for your reply in advance!
