Amazing little worker
“weighs nothing, uses 2 AA’s and is great with rechargeables, puts out auto f4 or f8 with asa 400, thyristor, works with any hot shoe, manual full power only or thyristor, bounce, wide throw, small, cheap,fast recycle… I love this little guy, I use it at my weddings, It’s lite and easy to use. I see guys with 580’s and laugh, this strobe uses less power and I can do a whole wedding on 2 AA recharables batts… yes 2 AA’s, amazing! It’s efficient and a great back up… now my main. You are not going to balance f16 sun with it for portraits although at 6 feet you get f16 asa 400.” – By John A. Phillips
