    This review is from: Sunpak PF30XN Digital SLR Camera Dedicated i-TTL Flash for Nikon (Electronics)

    I’m a very enthusiast amateur hobbyist photographer and I used this on my Nikon D3000. I read all the time that everyone should get a flash, the on camera flash is never good enough; but of course i always thought my cameras look great(comparing to point and shoot). Over the last few months I’ve been looking for ways to take better pictures, i picked up a 35mm dx fast lens and it made a world of difference but while taking christmas pics I noticed there was never enough light so I decided to get a flash and after research settled on this one. let me tell you this flash is amazing; I uploaded the picture of my two year old that I took using this flash here so you can check it out yourself. that picture was taken with no lights on and one window partially open 15 feet away.

    I have to say that I have read a bit about flashes prior to purchasing one and understanding guide numbers and how they are used, ttl, etc. I also looked at prices here on amazon, B&H and other random sites as comparisons and for the money I thought this flash was my best option and I was not disappointed. I have not seen any other flashes at this price or lower that performs as well as this flash.

    As everyone said the one downside to the flash is the high charge time, however you can compensate for that with the proper batteries so after doing more research on the right batteries I bought Energizer Ultimate L91BP-4 Lithium AA Battery 4 Pack and it cut down the charge time to literally about 2 seconds.

    this is a great flash and anyone looking for one in this price range should definitely look at this, being that Sunpak does have a history of making solid flashes plus the price point and performance I simply see it as a no-brainer for anyone in the market and on a budget. Before I ordered this one i added the SB600 to my wishlist hoping to buy it in a few months but I honestly don’t know if i’ll need to after using this one. That being said I don’t do paid events and I only shoot for myself, friends and family.

    I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised by how good this flash unit is. It works with TTL with my Nikon D-40, and the pictures it takes are very nice when using it for indoor bounce flash. The price can’t be beat – and the unit feels more sturdy than I anticipated.

    The one downside for some might be that it recycles on the slow side (8 seconds), so if that doesn’t bother you (it doesn’t me), then as always, YMMMV.

    I included a set of pictures I took – one with this unit, and one with the built-in flash. As you can see, bounce flash is superior.

    Pros -

    Affordable
    Great results
    iTTL
    Exposure compensation options on flash

    Cons -

    AA batteries
    Recycle time

    Overall this flash exceeds my expectations.

    This review is from: Sunpak PF30XN Digital SLR Camera Dedicated i-TTL Flash for Nikon (Electronics)

    This flash was meant to be a quick/cheap replacement for the Nikon
    SB400 which was lost on location. The build quality leaves something to be desired, although I have not used it for a long enough time to comment on its durability. The flash performance, however, is excellent. Really impressed by the built-in diffuser. One serious caution is that it is a bear on batteries. The recycling time is slow (depending on batteries used, and discharge) as other reviewer have indicated, but I expected that, and am not complaining; but it does eat batteries.

    Just for fun I tested the flash using regular carbon batteries. The recharge time was over 25 seconds and I could only get 3 exposures for the set of “new” promotional batteries I used. The lesson: buy nickel hydride batteries. I bought 6 nickel hydrides and a charger (added cost $25). I went through all three sets of batteries (and had to use my “reserve” set of alkalines) to get about 100 exposures during one evening’s shoot. I was grateful that I had the foresight to purchase rechargeables.

    In short, you get what you pay for, and I have no regrets, but as soon as I have more funds for photography I’ll look for something better built, and less of a battery hog, and leave this flash for an emergency backup
