Re: Bolt VX-760C Wireless TTL Flash

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.

It isn't stated that this is a Master Flash so it is probably a Slave Flash, much like the Canon 430EX II.  Personally I would buy a 430EX II, a Nissin Di622 II, or a Yongnuo YN-565EX. | Canon 430EX II Speedlite Flash Review | Nissin Flash Review: Di622-II (flash for Canon / Nikon) | Yongnuo YN-565 EX Flash Review (Equiv 430EX II & ETTL-II on/off-camera)
