Small. takes little room. Only 2 AA batteries.


Low power output (not a surprise).
High voltage on the trigger pin. DO NOT PUT THIS ON A DIGITAL CAMERA'S HOTSHOE! Would be OK on most film cameras (use 400 speed film minimum).
Quite slow charge time but what do you really expect from a small 2 AA battery flash.

Cute and small. Not much power though. The bounce capability is kind of a joke with the low power output. The only way it would work as a bounce flash is if you have your ISO set for 1600. If you can accept the quality loss at ISO 1600 then it could be useable.

Note that this flash does not have it's power controlled by the camera (eg. TTL). Either full manual or set to auto. But you need to know how to use the chart on the back.

Customer Service

None. This is old and obsolete.
