I am a serious, amateur (oxymoron) photographer who has some decent, but cheap, gear to do home portraits. I am a redneck engineer mixed with little bit of a perfectionist -- I'll jimmy rig equipment as necessary to make it work, especially if it can perform. I have this flash paired with the ePhoto 2 x off Camera flash Photography Umbrella Flash Shoe Mount Swivel Flash Adapter for Nikon SB900, SB800 SB600 Canon EX430 EX 580 2 tripods, 2 Silver umbrellas, 2 shoot through umbrllas, 2 shoemount brackets + Carrying Case by ePhotoINC ULS302D and it works GREAT.
I shoot in my living room where there is a sectioned room with an 8 foot opening. On the backside, I mounted a thick, wooden curtain rod to hang backdrops. In the sectioned room, I have overhead track lighting and then these strobes handle all the fill flash using the umbrellas. I set them to optically fire with my onboard Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash for Canon Digital SLR Cameras. If I set them at half-power, they do a wonderful job casting plenty of light to get great portaits with a low aperature and ISO 100. Most of the time, I use a cheap softbox on my 430EX and these do most of the fill and shadow reduction. Also at half power, they recharge almost instantly with Sanyo Eneloop 8 Pack AA NiMH Pre-Charged Rechargeable Batteries -- my camera can't shoot enough frames in continuous mode to deplete recharge over a 10 second interval.
After purchasing, I can see why serious professionals may poo-poo this flash -- there is no ETTL and it is ONLY GOOD AS A SLAVE DEVICE. If they have an 580EX and some 430's as wireless slaves, there is no way they would downgrade to a cheap Chinese optically-fired slave. However, since I am a hobbyist, my quest is always to find something functional at a price that I can afford. Once I received my first unit from Amazon, I immediately bought another that weekend.
All in all regarding build quality, the shell feels about the same as my Canon 430 in both size, construction, and weight (though I imagine that the electronic innerds are light years apart in quality). Some have complained about longevity, but for under 50 bucks, how can you go wrong? I'll let you know in 6 months.
With a freshly-charged set of batteries (4 AAs) it takes very little time to recharge, especially if on a lower-powered setting. In fact, on the low to mid-powered settings I'm able to use the burst mode on my Canon T2I (about 8 frames per second) and the 460ii will flash with almost every shot.
The construction is a little lighter and possibly less sturdy. Most of the time I'm fairly careful with my equipment but I did drop a 460 once and it shattered. (My granddaughter picked it up too quickly and it gave her quite a shock/burn on her thumb.) Fortunately the camera it was attached to survived.
But for the price you can't beat 'em. That's how I can afford 3 of these instead of only one Canon light.
Slave modes work flawlessly. I've bounced my on-camera flash off the ceiling at 1/32 power with this flash pointed away from me and have not missed a shot yet. I figured a wireless remote trigger would be needed for some of the things I'm trying to shoot (smoke and water drops), but with a little creativity I've found ways to work around not having one. Recycle time is awesome at low to mid-level power settings and at over 400 shots on the first set of batteries it is still going strong.
On camera triggering with my D3100 works just as well. The only "bad" thing is the weight it adds to the camera. With my 85mm lens the rig is just downright heavy. Throw on the featherlight 35mm and it's way more manageable.
Build quality is also better than expected. The off-camera stand is cheap plastic but certainly functional and has a threaded hole for easy tripod mounting. The built-in diffuser and bounce card are a plus and work as expected. The controls on the back are simple, straightforward, and easy to read from a distance. Build quality is also better than expected. It's not going to take a lot of abuse but should hold up well if reasonable care is taken during use.
Pros - Optical slave modes that work exceptionally well. Easy to understand, read, and adjust controls. Quick recycle time at lower power settings. Build quality and features.
Cons - Honestly, none for me. I don't care that it doesn't have zoom, TTL, or other whizzbang features. The only detractor at this point is the weight.
Would I buy another if the need arises or recommend this to a friend? Heck yeah! If you're just starting out and want to get into off-camera flash without breaking the bank you'd be hard pressed to find a better option.
Thanks for reading, and happy shooting.
