    i don't know anything about it, but from the looks of the pictures, it looks like it's powered by the hotshoe on the camera, so my guess is that it's not continuous.

    Anyone here with experience with these things? Looks like a cheaper version of the Ray Flash. I wonder if they are as good..

    I don't own one, but i've played w/ a RayFlash one and it's a decent unit. There's obviously better out there for more money, but for what it is, it's not bad. One flaw that bothers me is that it blocks the autofocus assist beam, so that can be an issue in dark situations. Also, it works best on shorter lenses ie. 70 or shorter, but w/ long lenses it become cumbersome, and gets in the way of the lens controls.

    i hate those sites because the stuff takes forever to get to you because they're shipping from HK
