Style Name: Canon Verified Purchase
I'm a huge advocate of flash photography and do quite a bit with mulitple, off-camera flash units. I've dabbled in macro photography but never got excited about it. Knowing how flash can transform other forms of photography, I decided that I "needed" another flash unit. However, since I just dabble, I wasn't ready to plop down $500 or more on Canon's solution. Wanting to support an American standard, I decided to give Vivitar a chance.

There are several nit-picks that I have (and are listed below). There is one overwhelming positive that puts this into a strong, good rating.

What I like:

In a nutshell, fast and accurate E-TTL operation. With macro work, you're working with enough other technical aspects that having one less thing to worry about was welcome. I'm comfortable working with manual flash settings and do so frequently with portraits. With some macro subjects, everything is static, with no time pressure. In those cases, I was (already) using a pair of 580's on stands. But for organic subjects, your hands are full. Having the option for E-TTL was a welcome change. For my tastes, the exposure was a bit "hot" (see below).

What I wasn't thrilled about:

The unit is very plastic-y feeling. All of my other flashes are Canon brand and quite simply feel a whole lot differently. This one feels ... "cheap". The control unit (in the hotshoe) is definitely in this "cheap" feel category. The coiled cord to the flash head is fine. It's solid and heavy. The head (that mounts to the lens) is ... okay. On the plus side, having something that's lightweight at the end of the lens is more convenient just for the weight savings.

Do not waste your money in this very unreliable product. I bought it, it works for only two projects, the third time I tried to use it only lasted a few clicks and then it just stopped working. Yes, it is significantly cheaper than the Canon and Sigma, but you will end up anyway having to buy the Canon or Sigma when this stops working, so at the end you will spend more money. Will not recommend. Will not buy again.

Maybe it worked for others that bought this but it failed after 4 flashes. If that is all it can handle then it is not worth the effort. Will not get another one. Will get money back and buy something that will not fail after 4 flashes. Save your money and buy something directly from Canon. You pay more but you get a good product. Vivitar should be ashamed to put a product like this out on the market because I see I am not the only one that had problems with this item.

This ring flash works just like I had hoped for. I understand that there are fancier ring flashes out there but they cost so much more. This flash is just what I needed for taking photos of small items and it has worked well.

This product came with the loose connector and not user friendly function on the lightening area with connecting part to the lens, although the connector part to the flash site of the camera was damaged and not fixed. I could receive the this after about 10 days and I could not use it and I had to return it back. I don't want to try it again
