The little flash that could!

Firstly, thanks to Flipkart for the very prompt delivery. Got it in two days. Wow!

Now to the product itself.

Buy this flash if you fit the following:

1) You own a Nikon DSLR :-)
2) You are a serious amateur in photography
3) You don't like that "ghost" look created by the on-camera flash
4) You feel that the distance covered by the on-camera flash is not enough
5) You would give your right arm for the ability to bounce the flash
6) You don't want to look like a professional wedding photographer

Do not buy this flash if you fit the following:

1) You don't own a Nikon DSLR :-)
2) You work in a studio environment
3) You want long distance coverage with your flash
4) You want to bounce flash off the ceiling when in portrait mode
5) You are a wedding photographer or want to look like one

This little flash performs much better than the puny on-camera flash. I have a Nikon D90 and was always producing terrible looking images when I shoot with the on-camera flash, mainly because I couldn't bounce the flash. So I bought this little beauty and now I produce some amazing pictures simply by bouncing the flash.

Right, you got my drift. If the main reason you want an external flash is to be able to bounce it, then this one is for you. The only limitation is that it can't swivel so when in portrait mode, you will be able to only bounce off the wall.

Otherwise, good value for money and you will enjoy flash photography again.

You just can't go wrong with this guy

If you are reading this, then it means you are someone who is looking to break away from the built-in flash that came with your d3100/5100/90 etc. and want to explore the bounce flash. Don't think much, just get it, you won't regret it. I got it mainly to shoot in bounce flash mode indoors for family functions etc.and it has done its job amazingly well. I'm in LOVE with this little guy.

You have to get this mainly to use in the bounce flash mode, not not fire it in your subjects face like the built-in flash. Its no good that way. The difference with bounce flash(ceiling/wall) will make your jaw drop and make you wonder why you didn't buy this piece of magic before.And it is so small and easy to use.

Only problem I have with it is that its head will only swivel up and down not side-ways, so you can't bounce it off the ceiling in a vertical frame.So your only option in that case is to bounce it off the side wall.

But nevertheless , its a highly recommended product.

The absolute best for any Nikon DSLR!!!

Got delivery in 3 days (Mumbai-Delhi). Well packed. Flipkart's new tracking system really helps in identifying the location, and relieving tension.
The flash itself needs little introduction- it's one of Nikon's best sellers and like the default 18-55 lens, this flash is a little wonder.
1. It is small, light and blistering fast in start-up and recycling.
2. The flash unit actually rotates upward, in a very innovative way, offering the same bounce flash functionality as larger flashguns that cost 3 times as much!
3. It seems svelte and gorgeous with my D5100, and does not appear dominating in any way.
4. Perfectly matches the D5100's flash metering. If you use Nikon, you will understand the beauty of their flash metering. The flash communicates its bounce to the camera and receives inputs, through which it adjust it's output. This one actually outperforms the built-in flash unit in the flash metering. Produces stunning levels of exposure.
5. Bounce flash at this price point means you can use it with large and long zooms without fear of shadows.

Get this without thinking. It is THE best for any Nikon DSLR. Perfect value for money.
And thanks to Flipkart- they are back on track, and I have found very good deals again, after a couple of years.

Way Advance than Inbuild Camera Flash

It is one of the cheapest flash available in the market, but this is serious upgrade from inbuilt camera flash, The flash is powerful enough to bounce well of the walls and lit the subject well and evenly. If you own a DSLR you should at least have this one.

Pros :
1) Significantly cheaper
2) Powerful (much more powerful than your inbuilt camera flash) bounce off wall like charm.
3) light weight and small.(even professional photographer use it as travel flash)
4) Run on two AA Battery for a long time (don't eat in our camera battery).
5) 2.5 sec reloading time (much more than your inbuilt camera flash)
6) Connects well with your camera and all controllable from you in camera menu.

Cons :
No real con, but some feature you can miss when you master some flash photography technique
1) It is a on camera flash, you can not detach it and use it from another angle or trigger remotely (which you don't need at starting level)
2) tilt up word till 90 degree, but no side tilt, so difficult to bounce flash when holding camera in portrait mode (sure you can apply your mind to do so)

If you own a DSLR even with a 18-55 lens, this is a must have attachment. Buy this and your indoor photography quality will change for ever.

Note : Do see some flash techniques on youtube (or book) to make up your mind or to know how to use flash right. (Simply using it in a direct point and shoot mode will create greater disaster than your on camera flash).

Nikon SB400 Speedlight

Speedlight 400 - I was well aware of its pros and cons (compared to its bigger brothers - SB700 and above) before jumping the gun. So no badmouthing about its limitations.

A very well built product from Nikon. I am using it on my 3 yr old D5000 and very satisfied with the results for home use. Works seamlessly with my 18-55 VR kit lens and 35 F/1.8 prime lens on the D5000 in i-TTL mode. Absolutely love the the improvement in indoor family shots over the built in flash. The included carry case is a very nice one. An affordable and definite must have accessory for any amateur DSLR user.

I only wish Nikon also provided a basic diffuser in the box.

Purchased on Aug-15-2013 using COD and received it on Aug-17-2013. Kudos to Flipkart for its excellent and quick delivery.

I also got an additional 10% cash back from Flipkart as part of the Independence day promotional offer.
