does not fit 67mm lens as advertised

Purchased specifically for 67mm macro lenses as advertised has ring to match but when box arrives the ring is NOT 67mm and the 67mm -Size is fixed on the box. I am not happy.

This product is inconvenient

This product has a loose connector and inconvenient function in the lighting section with the connecting part to the lens, although the camera flash connecting part was damaged and not fixed. I was able to get it in about 10 days and I couldn't use it and had to send it back. I don't want to try again

  • cool product
  • sparse manual

Dissatisfied with the rebound flash.

I do a lot of macro photography in my small studio. This Vivitar flash is of good quality, I've only had some issues when photographing shiny objects such as silver coins or objects enclosed in durable protective cases. Trying to control lightning ricochet has always been a time-consuming task. I switched to an LED ring and that solved my problem.

  • Best in its niche
  • Security

Poor quality, no longer working

Don't waste your money on this very unreliable product. I bought it, it only works for two projects, the third time I tried to use it it only took a few clicks and then it just stopped working. Yes, it's significantly cheaper than the Canon and Sigma, but you'll still have to buy a Canon or Sigma if they stop working, so you end up spending more money. I will not recommend it. I will not buy again.

  • Solid finish
  • I will add later

A Christmas present.

My husband gave me this for Christmas and he loved it. got a job Then . Nothing. Dead as dead can be. Tried changing batteries etc but nothing. Spoke to Yoen, Revain's customer service rep, who was extremely helpful and sent me a new unit with no questions asked. Fantastic service, Revane. The few photos this has worked for are amazing! I look forward to replacements and larger shots of my dogs and various creatures in our backyard. Will upload some new photos when it arrives.

Pleasantly surprised

I'm a big fan of flash photography and I use multiple external flashes. I've tried macro photography but was never hooked on it. Knowing how flash can transform other forms of photography, I decided I "needed" another flash. However, since I'm just trying it out, I wasn't willing to shell out $500 or more for Canon's solution. Wanting to uphold the American standard, I decided to give Vivitar a try. I have a few quibbles (they're listed below). There's an undeniable plus that makes this aโ€ฆ
