I used PZ42XN on Nikon D5100 and D800 inplace of the built-in flash. It is adequate for direct lighting of subject in relatively small room. I've used Alkaline and Ni-MH batteries (not mixed).
Replace an older flash. New cameras, 6D, new flash
Seems to work very good with my Nikon D3200
I have found the flash falls off about 1 stop from center to top on a flat piece of art only 24 inches tall at a very moderate distance of 10 feet. Alternatively, I could describe this as a hotspot in the center, even with the small built it diffuser that can be flipped down.
I just got into the habit of carrying it with me and actually using it. I've only ever changed the batteries once before. This is literally the second time I've had to change the batteries and now the flash won't fire.
I wanted a flash with manual settings, and many I looked at were $300+. My goal was "shooting" hummingbirds and "freezing" the rapidly beating wings. It wasn't so much for illumination (although that helped with some twilight shots), but for the (use of) the flash to effectuate a higher shutter...
I am extremely happy with this flash. It does a wonderful job and works exactly as I need.
I have used this Sunpak for 2 years with my Canon 7d and have been very pleased with it. I do mostly event photography and some photo-journalism. I have seen the reviews that say it is superior to Canon of similar price. It is and itn't compared to the Canon 430EX I just purchased.
This flash works great as long as you have it attached directly to the camera, or using a flash cord. But when I tried to use it with radio transmitter for off-camera flash use, it does not work. I don't understand why.
This strobe works very well. I was looking to upgrade to a manual flash and started with this one. I have not found any issues.
