Its Lightweight and has great features to use
I wish I had bought this flash unit years ago. Once I started using it I could see how much better my pictures look. The flash unit is easy to use and it has a feature that after you take your picture there is a green light that lets you know that you took the picture is all the right exposure. Whoever I bought this from sent it to me very fast it took to days from San francisco, Thank you.

Good used Flash
Does the job. Glad I didn't buy new. Paid about half price for an excellent, lightly used item. Very satisfied.

Light Niagara Falls from across the river. Not quite but a great flash.
If you need a Flash for your Sony Alpha this is the one to purchase. Don't waste your money on a less powerful model or an off brand which will not be 100 percent compatible with your camera and give you headaches you don't need. There is enough power for anything you wish to light. I use it on an A65 and the results are great.I have had excellent results with birds at 50-60 ft. Bouncing indoors is easy and produces great results with natural skin tones. Using the auto mode the TTL & ADI work well for most shots.It has given me great results at weddings and Bar Mitzvahs when there is fast moving action and you don't have the time to meter every shot. Using it with a flash meter in manual mode at any power this flash won't let you down. On or off the camera this flash is hard to beat. No overheating after a few shots like the HVL F60AM. The only downfall I see is price it's way to high. However if you want the best you have to pay it.Read full review

Large heavy powerful flash
This is a large powerful flash. Built in very wide angle diffuser and bounce card. A really useful and unique swivel feature. Flash is powerful enough to bounce off of a high ceiling. HOWEVER, it is large and heavy. For most situations the sony 43 flash would work just fine. You never know when you may need that power though. I bounce a lot so it is the 58 for me.

Awesome product Great value for the money even though superseded.
why i purchased this product you need a powerful flash to do the job.the flash is now replaced by later models which i feel do not produce the power of this model.I have always used other brand cameras with same flash capabilities and this flash coupled with the sony a55 compares favourably.I have no dislikes about the product.
