Ok I tested it out a little today 2 things it doesn?t have

1 no rear curtain sink
2 no wireless
I use it here to highlight the flowers that were strongly backlit and with out the flash came out only as a silhouette

Just had a look at (not the cheapest shop but good guide becuase they do tend to list just about everything!)

Sunpak PZ40x in KonMin AF is £150

KonMin 3600HS(D) is £170
KonMin 5600HS(D) is £290

Results look good enough in your test image.  Do you think its worth the loss of 2nd sync (shame) and no wireless (shame) ....  :?:

 :?: Does is tilt & swivel.  The 3600HS only tilts no swivel.  Personally i think the swivel is important.

Perhaps handy as a small travel flash, you said it was compact (only 2x AAs)

Another page on the PZ40x

For me its only really job is as a fill in flash. It?s to weak to replace my 5400xi, I have a 5600 hs(d) on its way but it will take 3-4 weeks and I leave on holiday tomorrow so I grabbed it for the time being. Paid 150.00 euro 100 euro cheaper than a 3600hd (d) here.

I have a laptop with me so I will post some stuff if I get a chance
