Nikon SB-80DX AF Speedlight

4717NAS_180
Review Date: Nov 28, 2009 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

 
Pros: features to price ratio decent size & weight 14-105mm zoom range 1/1 to 1/128 power range pc-sync port after i received it, i liked its good build quality compared to earlier nikon flashes and it's 1/3rd stop power increments great for full manual off camera strobist.
Cons:
buttons are too small flash head does not rotate between 3 o'clock and 6 o'clock position (from above perspective)

i picked this flash up used on ebay after becoming interested in the strobist blog.

decent build quality. i dropped it onto a sidewalk from 5' and luckily, it didn't scratch or break in any way.

i intend on picking up 2-3 more for my strobist kit.
