Now I was in need of a flash so I could get going with photography. I got out to buy it and picked this ESDDI Flash Speedlite with Standard Hot Shoe up by the recommendation of the shopkeeper. He told me that it will be the best fit for my camera. I just took it and gave it a try.
I bought it and with all the specifications that it holds, it was a very good device under this price. I found it very easy to use and it was definitely the best fit for my camera as told by the shopkeeper. He suggested me a very good thing and exactly within budget, therefore I would love to go and shop from there again.
This flash is very powerful dedicated flash which provides you with greater ease over the standard pop up flash which is appropriate for most types of digital cameras. Coming to its specifications, The first one and for me, the best one that I would like to mention is its recycling time.
It has a superfast recycling time ranging from 0.5-5s. I personally think that it is not that much fast, rather on usage I realized that it is very slow but never mind, I get my work done. It has a hard flash diffuser, power saving mode (standby function), a thermal cut out for overheating protection, the autosaving function which saves much of a time, a fixed zoom and an LCD display panel through which you can control the device easily.
It has 3 modes, M, S1, and S2. The flash gives external light for clicking professional looking photos.
When you are shooting in M mode, just adjust the flash output and click the camera shutter button and the flash will be under the camera’s sync signal. S1 and S2 modes in it are apt to slave flash to generate many lighting effects.
They use the top external flash or the built-in flash as the master flash and the flash is placed in different directions.
