My Short Review: Flashpoint TTL Mini Speedlite for Canon (Nikon)

I purchased the "Flashpoint TTL Mini Speedlite for Canon" because it intrigued me and I trust Adorama. I figured that for the price point, the size and the features that it would be a good, low cost addition to my camera bag. My current go to primary speedlites are Canon's top of the line 600EX-RT; however, there is nothing wrong with have the "Flashpoint TTL Mini Speedlite" in my bag. It's a great compact hotshoe flash for the money. FYI, Nikon users, they do make this for Nikon as well. Oh, and I am not recommending it as a primary go to for professional photographers, but it's still a nice speedlite to have in your bag.

 

Nice Little Speedlite For The Money

By Thingsnotseen from Raleigh, NC on 9/6/2014
4out of 5

Pros: Lightweight, Easy to use, Compact

Best Uses: Candids, Fill Flash

The only reason that I gave this a 4 star vs. a 5 star is because I'm not convinced the TTL is spot on, but at this price point, I am still satisfied. It's nice to have a hotshoe style speedlite that is so compact, so lightweight and has both TTL and Manual features. I did several test shots with it in both TTL and Manual and got good exposures 15ft. away on f/11. It has enough power in a small package for most candid type shooting. I plan to use the flash as an extra one to have in my bag because sometimes having a flash as a go to is better than no flash at all. I purchased it mainly because of the price point, the size/weight and that it had TTL as well as manual. I am very pleased with my initial images.
