Do you Yahoo!?
Yahoo! Personals - Better first dates. More second dates.
- Uhm. Nice detail. I'm approaching a shop today. They usually allow
me testing the thing in place before acquiring the product if
they're not too sure about something.
Thanks for the info

H., what feature set does the flash have? Does it include rear curtain sync and flash exposure compensation? How wide is the wide angle coverage on this flash, will it cover 19mm?Thanks,Mark
I found the specs for it at:
It says this about the angle – how does this wide panel work?
1. Autozoom function for changing the illumination angle.
This function automatically sets the optimum illumination angle in accordance with the lens' focal length, in a range from 28 mm to 105 mm. When the built-in Wide Panel is used, the flash can cover the angle of up to that of a 17mm lens.

Is it me or is the Speedlight about $300 too expensive? I was looking at it
yes I know it was specifially developed for Digital SLR's, but really $478
for a friggin flash?! Esp one that goes on the Hot Shoe!... I think Canon
has a bit of the Sony complex.. You know where the letters on the case that
spell their name cost you extra $$ per letter...
