Another good deal. I grabbed the previous flagship model from them 2 months ago for £179. The new one has WR and improved P-TTL for the latest cameras, plus a modeling light for both stills and video if needed.

One thing to bear in mind though is that the backwards compatibility with pre - TTL cameras has been removed, at least if you want auto-flash control, because the on-flash sensor has gone (the modeling light is there now). So with older cameras you will have to use manual, the option of 'auto-flash' is not there. It's not a big deal I don't think, unless you are particularly locked in to using that mode. Manual is ultimately more reliable IMO.

We must avoid however, snapping away, shooting quickly and without thought, overloading ourselves with unnecessary images that clutter our memory and diminish the clarity of the whole. - Henri Cartier-Bresson -
