    "It's a very good flash for professionals. A bit overpriced for an ordinary user. You would have to use it a lot in poor lighting for it to be worthwhile."

    "Not a great flash if you are used to the older versions. This flash takes a bit to charge, which is a huge problem when you need rapid-fire flash! I will return this and purchase a new older model, which I know works well. Cannon dropped the ball on this one."

    "This is a good flash for the professional photographer and for the casual user of a DSLR who need a portable flash unit. It increases the field of depth, can reach up to 30 feet, and has adjustments to control how bright it is. It also does not burn through batteries so fast that you have to carry around several spares. It's light, so it won't weigh down your camera case. A little pricey, but it is well worth what you'll spend if you're looking for stunning flash photography. "

    "This is a great flash attachment for any fan of photography. It uses LED lights, so it takes a while to get used to when angling but once you learn it, it becomes integral to your workflow."

    "I wasn't too impressed with this camera. It's good for a casual user, but not if you're in the least bit serious about photography. There are better cameras for the money."
