I recently bought this new flash from B&H for about 110.00USD. I tested it with my N80 and 105mm AF f2.8D and Gold 100. I have posted four shots from the PictureCD (unenhanced) to NikonNet. The first image will have a caption, but no description. Just click anywhere on the image itself, and this will give you a view with the caption AND description. Isn't this silly? I hate NikonNet, but what else is there? (Is it the third quarter yet?)

This little flash is very lightweight. The power module fits in the hotshoe, and the flash module screws to the filter ring of the lens. The two modules are connected by a coiled cord. The power module has an ON/OFF switch, a ready light, and no other controls. Flash compensation can be controlled by the camera. I use spot metering, and try to position a sensor on the lightest part of the subject, so as to avoid "hot spots". If you are looking for a macro flash, but don't want to spend the megabucks for a new SB29, this will do just fine.---scott
