Inconsistent lighting, but better than the on-camera pop-up flash
on June 22, 2013
I returned this flash because I was getting inconsistent light coverage. I shoot still images for stitching together panoramas, so I use a tripod and shoot a series of shots as I rotate the camera around a room. With this flash some images were fine while others right next to the good ones were too dark (and yes, I waited until the flash was fully charged between shots). This flash is better than the in-camera pop-up flash, but not good enough for the work I do. So I bit the bullet and spent $348 to buy the Sony HVL-F43AM flash, and WOW! Now THAT is a terrific flash. If you can afford it, that's the way to go. It is an amazing flash for my Sony NEX-6 camera. I use it with a Sony ADP-MAA adapter on the NEX-6 and am VERY happy with the F43.
