Thread: speed flash

    Default speed flash

    Hi, I've just taken up photography in full swing last year and thus am quite new to the terms and equipment. I'm intending to get a speed light that is meant for both outdoor and indoor shoot. powerful enough to perform a good fill flash and other stuffs. Can anyone recommend? Nothing too expensive. Budget is abt $120. Thanks.

    Err...what is the difference? I guess should be the auto one. Well, I need a flash that I can control as well as one that can perform auto flashing. Which would you recommend?

    as far as i know, there is no TTL flash with manual controls for your price range? The cheap TTL Achiever flashes do not have manual controls.

    Basic flash, GN 28m, no swivel, 28 and 17mm coverage. A few auto modes for the on flash sensor, and a M mode. SB22 is what firefox is selling. GN I believe is slightly less, and has a MD mode.

    That's tilt, not swivel. The SB-22's don't swivel. Swivel is only available in the top end Nikon flashes.

    Yeah, I am wrong. By the way, what is the difference between swivel and tilt? thanks.

    I am confused with this one:

    Yeah, you're right about the SB22S not having a true tilting head. Which is a disadvantage.

    Only the front portion of the flash tilts.. the head itself doesn't move. Take a look at the SB-22 and you'll know.
