In this review, I will state my experience using this flash and list down all the bells and whistles this flash offers plus any notes of use you need to know. It will be long, but hopefully I will answer all your questions about this flash.
Here we go:
The first question of anyone considering this flash is: "Is it worth 400-500 bucks?" Yes, it is. This flash will give you much more flexibility than any other flash you can mount on your Alpha camera for several reasons.
This flash has a Guidance Number of 58 at 105mm at ISO 100. This provides a wide range of power to cover different distances, although it can vary depending on your settings (shutter speed, aperture, ISO). This is a VERY powerful flash, compare it against the built in flashes in DSLRs and they range between 10 and 12 GN, which is good and better than nothing when you need more light, but you won't be able to reach very far with it. Now you see why everyone else is raving about this flash in their reviews here. Using a GN 58 flash against a GN 10-12 one, which one would you pick?
The major selling point Sony uses for this flash is the Quick Shift Bounce technology, which allows you to move the flash's head left and right from 0 to 90 degrees quickly. Have you ever shot vertically with a normal flash that will just tilt upwards maybe to 90 degrees or 120? Some of them let you swivel the head on its own axis, but you can't move the head and set it like if you were shooting horizontally. This flash let's you do that. Why is this important? Because it allows you to have even light horizontally or vertically.Read more ›
