In this video I review the Phottix Juno Speedlight that is compatible with all camera hot shoes. This fully manual flash offers great features at an amazing price point.
This video looks at the build quality, specifications, and the usability in comparison to other offerings in the photography industry. I tested the flash in my studio using nothing more than a roll of tracing paper as a modifier. It also compares the flash to the offerings that were available when I first started out in photography showing how far the technology has moved on.
Off camera flash can be daunting to get into. With all of the spec sheets, numbers and compatibility issues, but I feel that this speedlight from Phottix offers a great entry point purchase option. The video goes on to compare the speed light to Canons own brand offerings where I focus on build quality and durability of the equipment. I also touch on how important being able to get services and repairs are on photography systems. I feel that for under $100 that you would be hard pushed to find anything else with both the specification, options for service and repair, as well as the build quality.
Although I am by no means a portrait photographer, the test shot below I believe shows the capabilities of this camera. As a professional food photographer, I would find that the specifications as well as the accessories that are available would make this a great product for getting into off camera flash. However, you may want to spring for the TTL version if you are a wedding or events photographer.
