    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Overheats very quickly I bought this flash about 6 months ago and recently used it on a professional shoot in the woods with a crew of 6 people and two wolves. It caused me a lot of embarrassment as I had to apologize for the flash for overheating. We got maybe 15-20 shots using it as a fill flash with an umbrella modifier off-camera before it stopped working. Very frustrating when you have a crew waiting on your flash to become usable again. Basically, we ditched the flash and had to shoot with reflectors. Not happy.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from HVL-F43M works well There are two things that are lacking. One is lack of a port for the Sony off camera flash cable. Also no one makes a simple off camera MIS flash cable. MIS has the worse support of any dedicated hot shoe by the oem or third party. This is a major weakness of MIS.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Well made product with very poor instruction. I am so disappointed in Sony's poor commitment to quality education on this product. Nothing but a quick video showing what is may do but not how to do it. The manual is write for someone with perfect vision and fall very short. There are no tutorials on the support page. I hope for more from Sony and hope they will read this and learn. I as a customer don't want another fancy "pro" photographer showing I could do I want clear instructions on how to use it. Again the product seems well built but it is a big fail in useful instruction on how to use it. - Disappointed Sony Customer.
