Reasons why you should buy Simpex speed light:
- Light and portable
The Simpex speed light is light weight and can be easily carried in your camera bag, without any extra burden on your shoulders. When you mount the speed light on the top of your camera, you will find it easy-to-handle while shooting in different conditions.
- Covers 180 degree angle
If you are using the Simpex speed light, you can rotate the head 90 degree to the left and right each. Moreover, you can also move the head 90 degree forward, facing the subject. This is something which your built-in flash cannot do, as it is static at one position.
- Control the brightness of light
Using the analog back panel, you can easily control the brightness of flash coming out of the Simpex speed light. So, if you feel that your sunject is getting overexposed or underexposed, you can easily reduce or increase the brightness of the speed light by pressing the button located on the back side.
- Diffuse the light
The Simpex 522 and 531 both comes with an attached bounce card, which bounces the light back on the subject (when the speed light is pointed towards the roof/sky). This great accessory lets you create a soft lighting effect with few or no shadows on the subject.
The Simpex 522 and 531 speed lights have three modes: Manual, Slave 1 and Slave 2. Using Slave 1 and 2 modes, you can use this flash light off-camera as well. Simply pop-up the built-in flash and then you click the shutter release button, the Simpex speed light will automatically trigger by receiving the light of the built-in flash.
