    "Works exactly as anticipated with Cannon's SX50! Hint: I also bought and extra battery set but so far its' OEM battery seems to have both a good charge holding capacity and last for many\multiple shots. Refresh time between flashes is adequate - yet not quite as quick as units costing 2-3 time more. WOULD recommend to friend."

    "this flash had been giving me trouble since this beginning. It was inconsistent and wouldn't turn on all the time. I dealt with it and in the end wasnt worth it. Wouldn't recommend"

    "479.00 makes this a tool for only fairly serious photographers. This Flash takes a little while to recharge and is NOT hugely popular with professionals.. This being said - mostly people are happy. If you aren't a professional - it begs the fact, what are you doing? This isn't a throw away type item. It's serious gear. Check out all customer reviews before buying this.. you are warned."

    "not talking out anyone from buying this flash and probably it just didn't work for me but Sony has work to do with this flash. Or maybe it's because i bought one used. The flash just isn't that powerful and it overheats. When it overheats it time out and shuts down for a good 10 mins then is able to be used for another 15 mins then it does it again. You stand a better chance of buying a cheaper and more effective flash like a nissin i40, yongnuo or godox which to me performs way better."

    "The Canon Speedlite 320EX was the perfect solution for me when I broke the flash on my canon T3i. It was easy to just pop it on my camera and I've been using it for a few weeks now and it works great. The price is right - just around $100, and it should last a long time, if you don't drop it."
