Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I ordered this flash because I am on a budget and couldn't afford to buy a $400+ flash unit for my Nikon D3100. Over the weekend I borrowed a friend's Nikon SB-600 flash unit and compared it to this polaroid flash unit, I must say the pictures are incredibly similar.
You don't get the zoom/metering options on this flash but you still have the same exposure/flash control options that you have on your onboard flash. It also comes with a light on the front to help your camera with it's autofocus AND that light also dilates your subjects pupils before the flash fires to prevent red eye. I can honestly say that I am amazed at this flash because I really thought it would pale in comparison to the SB-600, but it does not.
This flash is not bulky and is very light weight and produces amazing results especially when you bounce the flash off the ceiling for less harsh shadow/shine effects.
THIS IS A GREAT BUY!
I purchased a PL-108 AF-S for use with my Sony NEX7 to increase the usable flash range of the camera. The Polariod flash is much less expensive than any of the Sony or Minolta branded flashes that will work on this camera.
It works as expected on the NEX7. The flash mount shoe locks onto the Sony flash shoe securely and has a release button that must be pressed to remove the flash unit. The auto exposure coupling works fine. My shots were sometimes slightly over exposed, but that is easily compensated by adjusting the flash exposure trim. This flash is made of inexpensive plastic and has a very small power switch so is clearly "built to a price", but seems adequate for light, consumer use.
The output of this unit is approximately 2.5 stops brighter than the NEX7's built-in "pop-up" flash and the PL-108AF-S has a guide number of 60 (ft/ISO-100). Angular coverage is just enough for the NEX7 kit lens set at its widest 18mm field of view. The ability to change...
I just wanted a little extra distance for my Sony A33 and this flash has worked out nicely. Now I can shoot bright photos from nearly double the distance I could before. Battery life is excellent using Eneloops... haven't been able to drain down the first set yet even after a good 50+ photos. And of course by using this flash, I preserve the on board camera battery for longer shooting times! No complaints, this little budget flash unit has been well worth the money.
