I wanted to purchase something that will improve the lighting on my camera but wasn't so heavy to carry around or too expensive since the built-in flash was limited. This small, pocket sized flash was the perfect choice when I was on a road trip this summer. And it works with just two AA batteries!

TTL Compatibility: Yes
TTL Compatibility:
TTL (Through-The-Lens) refers to a light/exposure meter which is compatible with your camera, and takes light readings through the lens to determine the correct settings when in automatic mode. Often, this meter sends out a pre-flash or infrared sensor in order to detect the amount of available light. This signal may inadvertently trip your unit’s built-in slave tripper, and therefore can not be used with flash units.
