This is a powerful and reliable speedlight that can be triggered wirelessly from up to 50 ft away, which makes it great for outdoor shoots.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Great for outdoor shooting
This flash is very powerful, as indicated by the guide number of 190 at 100 ISO. It adjusts to the ever-changing lighting conditions automatically with the TTL mode. It can be activated remotely, giving you a lot of freedom in terms of placing the light source. The wireless triggering distance up to 50 ft. is easily the double that of an average flash in this price range.
Pro Great build quality fot the money
Although this flash is priced near the bottom of the pricing range for speedlights (they can be as expensive as $500), it has an excellent build quality. It can survive being dropped to the ground without getting a scratch.
Pro Can be fired frequently
This speedlight is fast at regaining its full power, so you don't need to wait that long after taking a picture to take another. The recycle time is only 3 seconds at full charge, while many more expensive flashes take as long as 5-6.
Con Additional expenses are required
Neweer, unlike most speedlight manufacturers, doesn't include a case in the package, so if you want one, you will have to look for it online. The same goes for wireless triggers and receivers and an external battery pack. You will have to look for compatible third-party equipment yourself.
Con It's not suited to shoot quick motion and wide aperture photos
This flash is not well equipped for shooting fast motion. It lacks High-Speed Sync (HSS) feature that allows catching rapid movement on a photo without blur. HSS is also useful for taking wide-aperture photos, where the object is sharp and the background is blurred.
Con Only support one line of cameras
This flash works exclusively with Nikon DX DSLR cameras.
