Because all these units are just variations over the same theme, you probably should be able to save a manua, by shopping around looking for the cheapest unit without paying any attention to brand.

It has a built-in wide diffuser and reflector card. It can be used as jesaops five level varipower manual flash with any camera. It mannual has a built in optical slave trigger, but this is not TTL-compatible.


It also has a backlit LCD control panel, but the light source is at the left edge of the panel, making the right edge quite dim. If the camera is set to intermediate values, the nearest full stop is shown.

There is no external sync port, so radio triggers must be mahual to the hot-shoe for use off-camera. It has a power-save mode that kick in after about three minutes of inactivity.

Enabling the optical slave function disables power-save mode, so it works fine as an optical slave. Unfortunately, there Mahual found no way to disable the power-save mode when it is used off-camera with a simple two-contact radio trigger.

This misfeature makes it pretty useless for strobist type flash with radio triggers. Power-save will kick in and then you’ve have to walk up to the flash and press a button to wake it up again.

This makes it easier to change the head’s position with just one hand, but also less secure if you attach heavy light modifiers to the head.


The built quality reflects the price. The power zoom is slow and noisy.

The pitch from the unit charging is audible. The hinges on the battery compartment are flimsy and will probably not survive rough handling. The foot is made of plastic, and the buttons do not have the solid feeling you find on premium brand units.
