    What do you mean by "brilliant flashes"? They're all quite brilliant... just look at the flash tube when u press the Test button.

    How about sharing with us what you want to use it for and your budget, for starters? Without any info, I'd say an SB-600 would fit the bill for most flash users.

    Yeah... "Brilliant" is a brand of flash manufacturer. I think from China, though I could be wrong.

    So far I have not come across anyone using this flash, though I have heard of their name being mentioned on CS now and then.
    Sorry I can't help you more, jamesco!
    Exploring! :)

    Actually Brilliant is a company based in Singapore, and it does import / export of photography accessories to different parts of the world. Recently they tied up with Tagotech to start selling their flashes on Tago online store. The flash has its share of mixed reviews, with some saying that it is value for money while others say that it did not work for them. But their warranty is always one to one exchange so maybe no harm in giving a local company a chance?

    Not sure if it will mean anything but:

    Nissin is a japanese company
    Yongnuo is a Chinese company
    Brilliant is a singapore company.
    (this info has no bearing on where their products are actually made, and/or made by who).

    I have tried nissin products. Works well and looks good.
    I also own some Yongnuo products. Works well and cheap. But worksmanship a bit rough.
    Brilliant never try.
    Suntax I tried and still own some of their products. Cheap, worksmanship rough. But works.

    Pick your poison.

    @Jamesco
    Hi James, some points for consideration when getting that 3rd party flash. Do you need some of the mentioned features below? I can only answer for Brilliant Flash as I am using it.
    Wireless flash trigger? Nissin cannot work with some wireless flash triggers. Brilliant ones can.
    180 degree rotation of the flash head? Must do homework on this. I think some cannot turn 180 degrees. Brilliant ones can.
    LCD for faster switching of settings? Brilliant ones can.
    High speed sync? Brilliant ones can, I think I tried up to 1/1000 secs on hotshoe mount. For wireless trigger, it depends on the wireless flash trigger set, Aperture and Godox ones can go up to 1/200 secs.

    The Canon version comes with LCD and the Nikon version does not. Both support E-TTL and I-TTL respectively. The zoom for Canon is auto, whereas the nikon one is manual zoom. Link here
