Neewer 750II TTL Flash

 

It is both decently powered and fully featured just like SB-700 but you can buy six of Neewer 750II Speedlight at the price of one SB-700! So it exactly like the high-end models but cost way less!

Thus, it is an excellent choice for those who want the best value for money and have less than a hundred bucks! But no matter how cheap it is, it doesn’t comprise on performance as shown below.

Coming on to its performance, it has a 58m Guide Number and supports TTL, M, Multi-flash mode which enable users to capture the intricate motion states.

The auto output makes it the flash with the most suitable brightness. It also features a flash duration of 1/3 to 1/2s. It can also be triggered wirelessly from 20–25m when shooting inside and 10–15m when shooting outside.

It also supports front and back curtain synchronous so that users can get a fabulous shooting effect. Not only that, but it also supports Multi-flash lighting Application: S1/S2 lighting modes each with their normal menus which are very handy.

It works well in both TTL and Manual modes. The performance is nice and the results always seem just about right. There is a minimal need for TTL compensation.

The Manual Mode Flash Output has 8 Levels (1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128) with ±0.3EV micro regulation. It zooms 18 to 180 mm and comes with also pull out wide-angle diffuser and pullout bounce card which are a bit too thin thus fragile.

The power is also relatively high and it has all the bounce and tilt and swivel and pullout bounce card options.

To further enhance its performance, this flash can vertical rotate from 0-90 degrees and horizontally rotate from 0-270 degrees.

This allows the provision of an accurate flashlight at every angle. Then this flash recycles full power level in about 2.5 seconds. The FV Lock and Rear Curtain Sync function also work well. Moreover, it comes with both wheel clamp and pins shoe lock for removing the flash safely.

Then there is a steel hot shoe plate at the foot as well. It is also equipped with a plastic flat slave stand (aluminum threads in the bottom) and a fabric drawstring case. Then the sync voltage is also very safe at five volts.

We’ve gone so far with the description, but in case you prefer video to reading, than here you can watch a video by F28 Music Media Live on YouTube:

 

 

It is a great explanatory review done by Chris Sturk who’s a freelance music and portrait photographer based in Raleigh North Carolina, also contributing at F28 Music Media.

Even though the 18 mm zoom stated is very optimistic as I found auto-zoom into 18 mm to be a little balky, but it works.

Lastly, there is some incompatibility with the Nikon SC-17 hot shoe extension cord but there is absolutely no problem when this flash is mounted directly on the camera hot shoe.

Coming onto user-friendliness, this flash is very easy to operate. The menus are convenient and have all the necessary features to use it.

The system is natural, convenient, intuitive, readable and easy to use Except for the LCD distance scale which is given in meters without any option for selecting feet everything is easy to understand.

The manual that comes with the flash has everything explained from basic flash operations to advance ones. Not only can you easily make them work but you can easily change the setting as well. The only lacking is that the English translation could be improved.

Nonetheless, this flash is both budget-friendly and user-friendly, unlike the high-end models which are both expensive and complex!

Not only does it perform well and it is easy to operate, but it looks good too. The build and design are on point while the dimensions of 60*190*78 mm make it compact and easy to carry. The build quality is also rough and tough as it is made from sturdy material which lasts.

It can survive harsh usage and can be your travel companion wherever you go. Thus, this flash will last a long time and brighten many of your shoots no matter where you are. It also comes with a protective bag so that you can easily carry it anywhere without damaging it.

It also has other complementary features such as charging socket outlet which allows for the external power pack, PC synchronous port for Manual flash, and also automatic temperature detection which leads to overheating protection.

These features allow this flash to be used both comprehensively and for a longer period. The Power supply is also top-notch as it is equipped with 4XAA size batteries which last long. Then there is a power-saving mode too which helps preserve the battery life to lengthen service.

However, the ready indicator is missing thus the camera viewfinder doesn’t beep to signal ready. The warning of TTL underexposure at full power tell users in advance that compensation is not going to work power demands have to be reduced is also missing from this flash.

Except for these two features there is no lacking in this flash. These two are minor drawbacks which are common in third party flashes.

Overall the verdict is that in less than $100 this flash offers a lot. There are some disadvantages, but the benefits far outweigh them thus making it a real bargain.

It is ideal for all sorts of photographers as it gives them a real edge by giving tons of functions without costing a lot.
