Top Customer Reviews
The Neewer is so easy to use, you really don't need an instruction manual. The output power is both adequate and consistent. Re-cycle time is advertized at 30% faster than it's preceding model (TT560), mine about 4 1/2 seconds after a full power blast. The build quality is very good, the flash head's vertical and horizontal detents for bounce are easy to adjust and positive enough to securely hold many of the larger accessory light modifiers.
This flash may not be the best choice for your style of shooting, it is fully manual ... but if you want simplicity in operation, powerful output and affordability, this flash deserves your attention.
With the rise of the strobist style techniques, companies like Neewer (also known as Godox) and Yongnuo are building innovative, well built and affordable flashes. What this model brings to the table is ultra simplicity and great visibility ... at $50, it's hard to beat.
Full review: I've spent a lot on Canon gear over the years and have never been disappointed with the performance or quality of pretty much anything with their logo on it. This Neewer 660 flash, while not up to the standards of a Canon Speedlite, provides pretty good performance at a great price point.
The overall build quality is better than I expected. It feels pretty solid, and the head articulation/adjustments also work well with generally smooth action and positive clicks. The construction is nearly all plastic, but the hotshoe is metal. The only part that felt somewhat "cheap" was the locking ring above the hotshoe. Works just fine, but it would have been great to have that be made of metal, or at least some sturdier plastic. But considering the price, zero complaints about build quality.
I also don't have any complaints about the packaging. Yes, that's often a minor issue, but given that I get 95% of my gear shipped to me, it's something I pay attention to. This comes well-housed with cardboard protection plus is wrapped in a velvet-like pouch to guard against scratches. Not as robust packaging as Canon, but effective. The included manual, while brief, is well written and actually readable (a rarity these days with low-cost electronics!).
It is noticeably larger than the Canon Speedlite, but not heavier. The larger size may cause issues when used on smaller cameras (e.g., could topple over). No problems on any camera with some heft to it.
I successfully used it with the following Canons with zero compatibility issues:
Rebel XT (original model)
5D (first gen)
5D Mark II
The display screen is easy to use, and the buttons are intuitive. For example, a quick hit of the plus or minus button adds/cuts the strength of the flash. There's a zoom mode for accommodating differing focal lengths which is also easily adjustable on the fly by a button press.
Adjustments include 90 degree vertical rotation, and 270 degree horizontal rotation. As noted above, the rotation action is pretty smooth, and the adjustment clicks are easily felt. It includes an off-camera stand and built-in diffuser and reflector cards.
It does NOT offer a wireless mode. Off-camera usage requires a pc sync cord to connect the camera to the flash.
It is compatible with the Canon Speedlite ST-E2 transmitter. I used the transmitter on a 5DMarkII, and the flash fired just fine.
While I'm not going to be tossing my Speedlites anytime soon, this provides good functionality and build quality at an impressive price, and I would not hesitate to recommend it as a starter flash, or a flash for anyone on a tight budget. Five stars.

What You Should Know Before You Buy:
♦ This is a Manual Flash. The settings are not controlled by the camera.
♦ Has 7 Zoom settings, 8 Flash Output level settings and 3 different modes.
♦ Has a built in wide panel and reflection card.
♦ The flash worked well and was easy to control in my initial tests.
♦ Requires 4 AA batteries and worked fine with eneloop rechargeables.
♦ The flash was perfectly compatible with my Canon EOS Rebel XTi Digital SLR Camera.
♦ Look - The product came in a professional looking box with some basic product information on it. Inside the box was the flash encased in cardboard to protect it. The box also contained a pretty detailed instruction manual, a small table stand and a velvet pouch. It is a pretty large flash with a pivoting head and a built in wide panel and reflector card. It has several LEDs on the back to indicate the selected zoom setting and output level. It has 5 buttons to control the settings and an on/off switch on the back. It requires 4 AA batteries. I used eneloop rechargeable batteries, and they worked fine. It appears to have a very nice build quality.
♦ Use and Performance - I used my older Canon EOS Rebel XTi Digital SLR Camera to test out this flash. It installed it in the hot shoe and took some test shots. I haven't used a manual flash before, but I was able to work with the settings to pretty quickly get some nice pictures. It was very easy to adjust the zoom and power settings with the buttons on the back of the flash. On the highest flash power setting, it took about 3 seconds to recharge the flash. On the lowest flash power setting, it was basically instantaneous recharge.
Overall, this was a nice manual flash. It is much cheaper than auto flashes and works well if you know how to use a manual flash. It will take some experience to get used to the doing things manually, but the settings are really easy to adjust that will allow for quick learning. If you are looking for a manual flash that performs well at a nice price, the NEEWER TT660 is worth consideration.
