What flash best suits my needs for a Sony A330 DSLR camera?

I am by no means a professional photographer, however I am learning and enjoy taking nice photos. I am looking for a flash that allows me to take night photos at close distance without catching the lens, causing a shadow. I also want to take slightly longer distance night photos. I don't want to spend a fortune. Any advice will help. Many Thanks.

Can the police do this?

Are the police allowed to set up speed cameras in unmarked cars? I am asking this because I would have thought not after the uproar that made them have to make all speed cameras visible as this would not be for prevention but rather a money making effort. I was driving yesterday and coming off a motorway and the exit spirals around so you cannot see what is around the corner then on the bend obscured was this black car on the hard shoulder of the slipway with it hazard lights on and a third yellow light flashing inside. The apparatus inside looked like a camera or at least I assume it was in the brief look I got. I can only assume this is what it was. The question is totally hypothetical however as speed camera or not I was not speeding. I'm not sure if it was the police or even a speed camera but I should rephrase my question anyway. Can the legally do this?

Yes. They did it, therefore they can do it.

    Hands down, a GREAT Investment!

    This flash is excellent for SO MANY REASONS! If you are just beginning in photography, you should check out this flash. If you are a pro and you need either a back-up, a slave, something to experiment with, and/or if you love to work in manual, you should check out this flash. Yes, it doesn't have any automatic functions, but for the price to feature ratio, you get more than enough to up your game with flash photography.I have been shooting as a pro for about 2 years now. Before that, when photography was just a hobby, my first flash was the . Even though it helped, it was not by much however, my knowledge of strobist photography was non-existent at the time.

    Amazed! EDIT: Not anymore :/

    First off, I am a professional photographer for the last 7 years. I've been working with Canon only equipment but in this economy the opportunity to get a flash for a fraction of the original Canon was too tempting to pass by....and I am amazed at how well this flash works right out of the box.So far I've used it in a studio setting as a backlight (slave, with a little octabox attached to it) and it worked like a charm. Full output is fantastic for bigger events. With the Yongnuo wireless transmitter this is amazing for fashion shoots on location, headshots etc. As a lightstand, I'm using my Manfrotto tripod, works like a charm as well.If you understand how to model your light and shoot in manual you get an amazing flash for a great value. I'm about to order 2 more for on location lighting.Also props to the shipper, product came well packaged 20 days earlier than expected!!

    Buy Four and a Nice Steak Dinner! (On Canon)

    Let me start this review off simply. BUY THIS. Is it as good as the more expensive alternative? It very, very, very nearly is. It's the right price, it has surprisingly good build quality, excellent recycle time (better than my Canon), and consistent results.This is my second Yongnuo unit (I have the 2 also) and unless I end up having more money than I care to count, I may never buy another Canon unit. Don't get me wrong, the Canon IS better, but $300 better? Absolutely not. My first Yongnuo was bought as a cheap second unit for a specific job that I didn't want to invest too much in. It has, since then, become my primary unit. I have two 430 EXII units that I use as backups now.My concern with most low price alternatives from China are usually quality related. This flash has taken several spills already (see my upcoming review of my new sandbags to avoid that) and hasn't skipped a beat. It's build quality is EXCELLENT. I can't say that part enough... 5/5 Jay Mittener - See all my reviews, June 20, 2013

    A good low price flash that worked well with my Canon 7D camera!

    Customer Video Review Length:: 7:40 MinsThis is a good flash for my Canon 7D camera and I was able to take good photographs in a dark basement of my chess set with great detail in the photographs. The flash is easy to use and set up and it operates on a set of 4 AA batteries. I was really surprised at how quickly it recharged the flash and was ready to go for the next shot.I put together a video to show the controls and the features of the flash. It comes with an instruction manual, carrying bag and warranty card (The warranty card is only in Chinese). The flash also includes a standing foot that will also mount on top of a tripod to create a free standing flash to light up a larger area. The unit has an infrared sensor so it can be tripped by a remote control.On the back of the flash you can set one of 8 flash brightness levels, three different modes and test the flash for operation. The controls also include a power on/off switch and a red LED to indicate that the... 5/5 jjceo (Greenwood, Indiana) - See all my reviews, April 15, 2014

    No TTL, but an excellent flash for manual exposures and creative lighting effects

    Customer Video Review Length:: 3:01 MinsMy initial impressions of the DBK DF-400 speedlight were very good. The flash appears to be solidly built, and the controls are clearly marked and easy to use. I inserted four AA batteries, and it was ready to go. I took some flash images around the house, manually adjusting the flash output level. I also took a few outdoor shots, dialing down the flash output to lightly fill in shadows. It's been several decades since I did manual flash exposures, but with digital photography, the feedback is instantaneous, so it didn't take long to zero in the exposures. Note that I did most of this testing with my Nikon D3200 DSLR in M mode, setting the aperture and shutter speed manually.After using the DF-400 as the main flash, I wanted to try it as an optically fired secondary flash for some fill-in to get more even lighting and reduce shadows. I set the DF-400 in the S1 mode, set it on the included stand, and fired my camera with a Nikon SB-800 flash... 5/5 J. Chambers (Georgia, United States) - See all my reviews, July 17, 2014

    An inexpensive lighting solution for consumer camcorders & more

    Customer Video Review Length:: 3:44 MinsThe Chromo 36-LED video light is a simple solution for getting light onto a scene that lacks enough ambient light to enable recording video of decent quality. It is what I would consider a low-end lighting solution but is quite adequate for what it is.If you've ever tried to get good quality video using a typical inexpensive camcorder or digital camera with video recording capability in low light situations, you quickly discover how poor the video quality is. Low light for most lower-end consumer camcorders results in abysmal video quality...typically very grainy, splotcy and muddled video. For a minimal cost, this light will provide adequate light to make the difference between unuseable video and not too bad video.The 36-LED array operates at a color temperature of 6500K and is powered by a 1200mAh Li-ion battery. An AC wall-charger is included. I found that the light provided useable brightness for just under an hour. It remained... 4/5 M. Erb - See all my reviews, June 16, 2013

Rechargeable Ultra-Bright LED 36 Camera / Video Light Flash with Hot Shoe and Tripod Adapter for Canon , Sony , Nikon and Other DSLR Cameras (Electronics) Chromo 36 led camera light feels like it came out of a vending machine. The on/off switch feels like its about to fall off. The door that holds the battery in has a nub on it that must be in place for the light to turn on. Bad news cause its just begging to break. Battery charger smells like burnt electronics fresh out of the box.This is a replica of a camera accessory. A toy. Look for something else.

    Total Loss - Not Recommended.

    I ordered this diffuser very recently, and was anxious to try it out when it arrived. (Good delivery time, by the way.) I was very surprised to discover that the package contents did not match what was described on the package. The diffuser is supposed to strap onto the flash unit by first wrapping the flash head with a "friction band", and then the assembled (I assume by some method involving velcro) diffuser, which has had a velcro strap threaded thru loops on the diffuser, is placed over the friction strap and tightenes to hold the diffuser in place. These instructions are clearly printed and illustrated on the packaging.Problems:1. No loops on diffuser.2. No friction strap.3. No way to assemble the diffuser.4. The only possible method of attaching this thing to the flash unit is by the supplied 4 velcro "loop" patches which are apparently to be somehow glued to the flash unit (of course, unacceptable!). These would be grabbed by "hook"... 1/5 G. Collins (Kansas City, KS USA) - See all my reviews, March 21, 2010
