Opteka EF-600 Flash Review
“This unit works quite well. I use it with a Canon XSI. When I first switched it on and pressed the zoom button, the motor stared running continuously. I switched it off/on a few time and it stopped. Since the it has worked flawlessly. When used with the built on diffuser, the results are very pleasing; faces are not washed out. The unit is quite powerful, and the slave mode works well. “ – By H. Garner
“This is a great flash for 1/4 the price of the Canon Speedlite. The zoom is fast, the recycle time is amazing and most of all the photos are GREAT! I put batteries in it and put it on my Rebel XS and it worked instantly. I was impressed for a flash around $100, I thought it would be cheap and low quality but it is built well and feels like a professional flash.” – By Gary Galletta
Awesome for the price
“I have found shortcomings between this flash and my brother’s canon 480 other than the canon has a more desirable control and lcd panel. Functionality is just as impressive and i am very happy with the product.” – By Michael Dixon
“Mine just came in the mail and ive been testing it out all day and it works perfectly with my Canon EOS rebel T1i. the built in diffuser works great and its perfect for bounce photography. like most other reviews yes the battery door does feel very loose…when its open. and i have yet to have any troubles with the batteries everything feels solid and secure and to me its fairly light. it is a great flash for the money, anybody looking to buy a new flash whether you are a beginner or a professional you should definitely invest in this flash, its easy on the wallet and like most opteka products I’ve used its good quality.” – By B. Brown
Pleasantly surprised by the quality
“I picked up this flash here on Amazon due to the price, not being able to afford the Canon 430EX II and 580. I was pleasantly surprised by the quality when I received it. Yes, there are some things – i.e. plastic shoe mount, and the plastic battery holder that are not up to the standards, but I didn’t expect more from a $100 flash. It looks massive on my 7D, and adds a little to the weight, but I like how it performs in low light situations that I’m constantly faced with.” – By Aleksandr Belyarchik
Great Product, Easy to use!!
“Right out of the box, the flash was easy to install and use. Produces excellent lighting and the built in diffuser works great! Awesome flash for the price…especially for a beginner like me! “ – By Siheur Yang
“The event started with still daylight and ended with at night shooting. Every shot was well exposed and distance did not cause flash fall off (again WOW). If there were any bad shots it was for composition not exposure and using the flash head tilt at 60 degrees with the built in bounce card gave me some exceptional dramatic photos. The flash worked perfectly with the dedicated flash features of my Nikon D60. Also, it used TTL BL to control exposure. Anyway I got some great pictures. “ – By Frank Cosmano
Great flash for the price
“At one point it seemed to reach a point where the battery voltage got too low and it kind of went crazy. The motor started to zoom to another position and it let off a series of about 5-6 short flashes all within a second even though I wasn’t pushing any buttons on my camera. It also started wildly overexposing my photos even though ETTL was indicated and the settings on the flash display matched those on my camera. This wasn’t happening at first, so it might have something to do with the low batteries. I’ll swap them out once they are fully dead and give another update.” – By J. Beams
It Works Wonder As A Cheaper Alternative To Speedlite 430EX
“TTL compatible. It communicates well with the camera to select the right focal length, ISO and light power. AF-assist beam allows the camera’s auto-focus to lock in to the target in dark places (not completely dark). Light power is bright enough for bounce shooting. 45-degree tilt to the ceiling will produce superb images with soft highlights and shadows, which is one main reason why people go for external flash guns.” – By Neo Lee
