    just tried it with my 430. only charged it up once because I didn't want to risk damaging it. but it is a lot brighter

    it's kind of a hassle to charge it up evey time but looks like I won't have to buy a 580 to light up buildings at night :bowdown: :bowdown:

    or you could open up the aperture or raise the iso and save your 400 flash :o


    might do it to a vivitar, not a 580II

    I was reading this thinking, "Well, maybe that's possible" then it got to the "wait exactly 60 seconds and turn it on again..." then I knew it was bullshit. I wonder how many people spent an hour trying this! :bowdown:

    I had my doubts about the thing to begin with and thats when I checked up there to see when it was put up. It was the final nail in the coffin.
