Great Unorthodox Flash Unit,
“I have this flash and I must say it is very powerful and very accurate when used in TTL mode. The unique design functionality make sit great for macro photography on a budget. Just do not be fooled by the picture; it is a horizontal design with a low profile but his is a big square unit. It uses 4 AA batteries and has a pc cord contact. If you can get below $75 it is a no brainier. “ – By Gear head
