    Abt 7 months ago, Fotoguide offered me the price. CP said around "$170". Didn't bother to ask AP after they quoted me $60 for 260T.

    You could look around for 2nd hand ones.

    yup, 32Z-1 is good enough

    Initially, I thought the lack of power control is a disadvantage but now I realise it's not necessary.....

    Newspaper taken using the flash at F11, ISO 200, 28mm zoom, 13 degrees facing down. Camera at F11, 1/1000s, ISO 200, 35mm.

    The newspaper is ~23cm away

    It is an auto flash with an additional manual mode.

    You could buy it online here:
    http://www.stofen.com/

    Or you could get it from Cathay photo.(Depending on availability of stock) at about $25-28.

    there's also a Metz reflector which cost ~$26.... it looks like this:
    http://mpenza.clubsnap.org/view_phot...album04&id=aaa

    But I didn't use it much though cos the light loss is really a lot.

    Anyway, I think the built-in 28mm position would function like a diffuser

    Have fun with your flash!

    Hi hi... yup yup... tried with the 28MM but it's still kinda harsh on Macro Shots.. so thinking of a omni bounce... thanks for the recommendation for this flash.. it's good!
