Wanted: P-TTL Flash w/ Tilt & Swivel


Link Posted 27/10/2011 - 20:38
Well it would see I've been dragged somewhat unexpectedly into the world of gig photography, and after spending a total of 14 hours in two days dicking around with manual settings trying to get usable shots from an old Starblitz 3200BT Twin, with limited manual control over power, and without a decent/reliable surface to bounce the light off, I've decided to bite the bullet and get myself a P-TTL flash.

At the moment I'm looking at one of those Tumax rebrands on eBay, going for around 85, but I thought I'd ask on here and see if anyone had anything else which might fit the bill (Sigma 530, an older Metz, something like that).

Hmmmm, looks like a good option... if nobody else has any better suggestions/offers I'll probably go for that.

I've also used a Metz 48 for a while and it's been a fine servant. I think 99 is a pretty good price, especially as you'll get 6 months warranty (I think the last one on here went for about 120).
