Since I upgraded my camera to a Canon 60D this summer, I needed to get a new flash for it. The one I had previously isn’t compatible with this camera. I am not a fan of the built in flash so I had to find a solution for situations when natural light isn’t an option. I was excited to try out the Fully Loaded Pro Flash Kit for Canon Digital SLR Cameras.
This kit comes with just about anything you might need for your flash and more!! The flash itself is very powerful, focuses fast and can be tilted and swiveled for maximum flexibility. (A bit of warning? Be sure to not look directly into the flash when testing. Just take my word for it). The LCD display provides valuable exposure information. The diffuser softens shadows and eliminates unpleasant red-eye. The Off-Camera Shoe Cord enables off-camera flash photographyI’m a big fan of rechargeable batteries, especially since so many things these days use batteries- I hate throwing them away!! The charger fits nicely in my camera bag and I can feel confident wherever I go that I can get my batteries recharged quickly. Having a blower and cleaning kit with your camera (any camera!) and other related equipment is one of those things that is an absolute must. I’d hate to be in the middle of some great photos only to realize I have dust on my lens filter and all my shots will be ruined.Pro Flash Kit for Canon Digital SLR Cameras Includes:
Zeikos Professional Digital SLR Camera Flash for Canon EOS w/LCD<image001.jpg>AA Rapid Multivoltage AC/DC Charger (100-240v) with 4 3100mah AA Batteries
Professional Deluxe Soft Box Diffuser
Off-Camera Shoe Cord AF TTL (Canon)
Professional Wrist Grip Strap for digital & SLR cameras (Security without a large, cumbersome strap!!)
Professional Blower – Dust Removal system
3pc. Lens Cleaning Kit
BuyDig.com has several other Canon Flashes available as well. I think that my new Zeikos flash performs as well as the comparable Canon flash at a fraction of the price- as an amateur photographer, I don’t have the money to spend hundreds of dollars on a lens. I feel that kids like this offer an excellent option with good quality for those of us who aren’t professionals but want to be able to use the full range of features our cameras offer. I’m excited to continue checking “playing” with my new flash and accessories!
