Comments about Quantaray Quantaray QDC-900WA Digital Zoom Flash for Nikon:

I use it with a D40x shooting everything from hummingbirds to portraits to candids of kids. Has performed very well so far both on & off the camera. I'm considering buying a second one.

Only con would be that the off-camera stand is small & made of plastic. It might not last very long.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray QDC-900WA Digital Zoom Flash for Nikon:

The first time I used it extensively I got poor results. Pictures were extremely underexposed if visible at all. Shot tests photos afterwards comparing built-in flash to this model. Built-in flash gave correct exposures from ISO 100-1600. This model gave consistently poor results with freshly charged batteries. The higher the ISO the more extreme the underexposure. This was with flash set on iTTL mode. I will be returning this unit as it is under warranty but I will be getting a nikon speedlight instead. I am sure the warranty will not cover and exchange. I am very disappointed [...]. My advice would be to follow Nikon's advice and stick to their name accessories.

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray QDC-900WA Digital Zoom Flash for Nikon:

On my way to an appointment yesterday I discovered my old flash a Quantaray QDC800 had given up the ghost and was showing green and red but shooting blanks(not firing the flash). I made a panic stop at my local Wolf Camera Center and they sold me a QDC900WA for my Nikon Coolpix 5000 and sent me out looking for action quickly but with a much lighter wallet.I soon discovered that the flash mated perfectly with my camera and allowed for easy adjustment and crisp pictures. What more could I ask for- thank you Quantaray [...].

Comments about Quantaray Quantaray QDC-900WA Digital Zoom Flash for Nikon:

I use this flash with a Nikon D80. It works well with the Nikon i-TTL flash metering system. By turning on Menu Item 25 [Auto FP] on the D80, this flash will allow you to use up to 1/2000 shutter speed [albeit you need to use manual mode and make your initial adjustments via a test picture's histogram]. It recycles fine and has good battery life, especially if using the i-TTL system, since it is only putting out the least amount of power necessary to expose the shot. It works well as a slave and combined with the D80's built-in Speedlight I have made some excellent, studio quality, portraits. If your budget doesn't allow you to shell out the big bucks for a SB800 , this flash will serve you well. The only reason I did not give this flash a 5 star rating is because of its documentation. It is only one page long and even that shares room with several languages. There is a lot to this flash, but you have to experiment to find it. A better manual would help with the learning curve.
