Yes, dear Friends.
I am a lousy Flash on Camera Photographer, When I am lazy to set up the camera for the best Flash Exposure Photos.
I so lazy that 80% when I use Flash inside of the building, In the room with fluorescent Light, I just set all of my Canon EOS to " P " mode, and Set Auto white balance, Yes, I get 95% good-Great Picture in every times past 10 years.
Yes, I have so many Flashes for my Studio Lighting, Such as 580 EX, 580 EX II, 550 EX, Canon Flash EZ, Vivitar Flashes.
Yes, last week, I need another Flash for my EOS-M when I travel, and I do not want to buy the Big Canon Flash which cost $ 400 US Dollars. I research on Internet and Find that On Amazon, They sell " Neewer NB680/ TT 680 Speedlite E-TTL( MADE IN CHINA) for most of Canon EOS, just for 65 US Dollars, And I read the Good reviews too.Yes, Just 65 US Dollars + free shipping, What the Hex, I order one, If I do not like, I just us as the Slave Studio Flash.
Yes, To day , after 4 days that I order from Amazon, My new Cheap toy, Made in China come.

Here are the result of my testing.
SuraponPS. 1 Big problem that I have---At the First time that I put on the top of Canon 5D MK II, The Neewer Flash do not work, and No communication between Flash and Camera.----I remove flash, and Clean the 5 contact point on Flash, and push them 5-6 timess, to make sure that good spring contacts. YES , AFTER THAT, I DO NOT HAVE ANY PROBLEM of this Cheapo + Great NEEWER flash any more.PS-2 : Yes, The Neewer Flash same Powerfull as my 580 EX ( 58 m/ 190Ft. at ISO 100), and 580 EX II ( 58m/ 190 FT. at ISO 100).
