I'm looking to get myself into flash photography and have been looking around and kinda got attracted by the tumax range of flash.

Cheapest start from $100 and goes to $200.

Anyone used it before? What are your thoughts of it?

I use Tumax flash. So far so good. Good color balance & performed to my expectations ;)

Was using a Tumax 386, powerful but seems to slightly overexpose on TTL hence using manual instead.

Change to SB600 for the high sync speed to use during the day as tumax does not work as it sync only till 1/200 shutter speed on my D90.commander mode is fun too though have not really taken pictures with the flash yet.

For budget of 200, I will recommend a Nissin Di422. If you have a budget of 400, go for a Nissin Di866. Very powerful flash.

Up the budget and get a DECENT Nikon SB-600 flash. You'll find that the colours and controls are so much better.

No more guesswork and leess corrections.

Better to get the flash from the same company as your camera, to prevent synch issue

better not to troll the newbies threads and advertise your "lobang".... CS has a category of member called "advertiser", and they pay $$ to advertise on CS.
What you're doing is sort of advertising, am I right?
