Talk about Smoking Strobes!
The Canon 580EX II which has a guide number of 45 at ISO 100 & 50mm.. This flash claims "Guide Number: 164' at ISO 100 & 50mm".
Like they say, if it sounds to good to be true then it probably isn't. This is most likely the greatest exaggerated guide number I have ever seen in print.
I think the apostrophe after the 164 means feet rather than the industry standard meters. This would give the Bolt a more believable GN of about 50.
Good point. It is still pretty high and probably an exaggeration but more believable.
My advice still goes, if you want an E-TTL flash get one that is know to be a good one like the three I recommended. They are listed in order of ruggedness and probably in order of longevity.
Living and loving it in Bangkok, Thailand. Canon 7D - See the gear list for the rest.
