Item Description
This flash has been a workhorse in all my portrait and product shoots, and now that I have acquired a P-TTL flash, I am letting one of these go with reluctance.

The flash is in fully working and in a very good condition - given how much I have used it. It is a wonderful flash for anyone considering the "Strobist" lighting technique, and makes for a great off-camera flash. This is the low-voltage version - with trigger voltage about 7.5v or so. Sale includes flash and the battery holder.

Given the weight of the flash (and hence the shipping charges), I am limiting the sale to US and Canada, unless you want to pay an outrageous amount of shipping cost elsewhere (about $40).

A very reliable flash for studio work, fast recycle and good manual controls. It is only hindered by the "high" minimum power level in manual mode.
