Just got this today for my Canon 60D and it works great. I read reviews around the web after i bought it saying it doesnt work for DSLR's, but this works fine and its a great flash for the money. Feels pretty sturdy to be all plastic. When first turning on the flash it takes about 20 seconds to get a charge and 30 seconds for a full charge after that its about a 4-6 second recycle time depending on how high or low the flash output is. Its a simple flash unit but works great so far, im happy with it.

***update***

When i was timing the time it took to charge the flash i was using the batteries that came with the flash. I replaced them with rechargeable duracells @1700mAh and the charge/recycle time is waaay faster. about 9 seconds for a usable charge and 11-13 seconds for the flash to be fully charged and the recycle is about 3 seconds and 4-5 seconds to be fully charged again. I get 3 flashes before it drains.

I also used rechargeable duracells @2450mAh and the charge/recycle time went down about 1 second. When you get the flash use better batteries to get better performance.

Sunpak is one of the well-known electronic flash manufacturers based Japan and since the mid-60's their focus has been to make products with advanced functions, reliability at a low price.

So, the company has been around for nearly 50-years and because of the brand name, I wanted to look for a flash to eliminate the use of the popup flash of my Canon T3i, a flash that would have multiple EV settings and the last, to be used as a slave flash using the Yongnuo RF-603 trigger.

Upon receiving the flash, everything was easy to use straight out of the box. Inside is a double-sided 8x11 instruction manual and two Double AA alkaline batteries. Also, information on how to send your flash in for firmware update.

Right of the box, the flash worked great especially with my Eneloop batteries. According to the instructions, you get 100!10 sec. flash intervals with alkaline and 140$8 sec. flash intervals with NiMH.

* Comes with EV ADJUST -1.5, -1. -0.5, 0, +0.5, +1, +1.5
* Autocheck
* Test/Charge
* AF Assist Light
* Bounce Flash (no swivel)
* Automatic Power Saving
* Sunpak One-Year Limited Warranty

It's important to note that the hot shoe is plastic and not metal.

FLASH TEST

I was able to test the Flash in daylight and during night time. Shooting in Manual Mode (this will work in other modes as well) and since it is E-TTL II, your Canon DSLR should be able to read it in the menu section and you can change the EV on the camera.

Flash is small and it gives good power up 100 feet ala ISO 100. Wait time is about 10 seconds after one shot...using Eneloop's, time was cut by a few more seconds.

The problem with flashes, especially that of Canon, is that they are high quality and high priced items. I was looking for a low cost alternative for the "Prosumer". I can adjust this and use it well in a studio environment without the high end electronics that come in some others. This fit the bill very well. It works, pivots and acts as I would expect it to. For the cost, I have NO issues whatsoever with it. If you want something that is the perfect mate to your camera, you may want to consider the $300 alternative. But again, I like this for travel when I might bang it up a bit, and for studio where I can manually adjust as I go anyhow.

I'm not a professional photographer, but I know enough to get by with taking pictures, its a decent flash, and it does its job for the price you pay, it only goes up and down and I now realize why people buy the one that has a squivel to it, where it can move sideways and up, but this flash only gives you the option to go up and down...which is okay, but it would have been 10x better if it did more. the batteries runs out QUICK and you have to give it time to warm up in between taking shots.

Im not a professional photographer but this is my opinion and I base my opinion in the my actual pictures , There is not a major difference between this flash and the Speedlite from Canon other then the price, both can bounce light , both can work with the internal menu from the camera and has a external commands too, both are limited by 1/200 of the shutter speed so if You want better fast motion pictures You need to used other methods than the Flash but that is more technical, the truth is that before I got the flash when ever I wanted to take a fast motion from my kids I had to have a lot of light(and it was not even perfect) but now I can capture nice fast motion and I didnt spend that much money, In the other hand If You are a professional maybe there are other reasons You need speedlite Flash but if I dont know, it's because I don't need it, right?

Received the flash in a timely manner with good packaging. Honest opinion about the flash? Maybe I've been spoiled from previously using Canon flashes - but if I could - I would return this flash. As it is, I'm going to let my daughter use it for her hobby (rare) photography.

Pros: compact, light, only takes 2 AA batteries, inexpensive (although there are others that are even less expensive that may work just as well)
Cons: eats batteries! Recycle time is horrendous! Does not come with a protective case of any type.

I think the PROs speak for themselves.
Cons - I'll explain a bit. Shot a wedding. Have canon on rapid/multishot. External flash set to go. 1 out of every 10 would flash. Yes, some say "don't use multishot and flash" That might be true, but that's not the way *I* shoot.

I was shooting a event setup for a new start company. They needed product shots, set up shots, staff, etc. I had 2 sets of rechargables and 3 sets of new batteries (non-chargeable). When I got to the event, I grabbed a random set (non-chargable). Within 25 flashes, batteries were starting to act drained. Swapped out batteries to the chargeables - and only got 50 shots before they were drained.

IMO, I think you would be better saving for a canon flash than spending the money on this particular flash --- or if you buy this one, fully test it out so if it can be returned - its done so w/in a reasonable amount of time if dissatisfied. I would have saved myself time and money if I had gone straight for a canon flash - even the least expensive one.

2 stars based on the fact that the flash DOES work, just not as I expected it to work.
