Is the Nissin Di466 Flash a good flash and what would a used one be worth?

Thanks!

I don't own this flash, but have read about it.

Apparently you cannot swivel its head, only tilt it. That's quite limiting (e.g. cannot bounce flash to ceiling in portrait mode).

Power output is rather weak as well and ETT-L is only supported on camera.

You may want to check out Yongnuo flashes. They are cheap and people seem to like them here (don't have one either, but planning to get one in the near future).

I've had mine for over a year and it's been working fine. However, I only use it as an off-camera slave. It has an optical slave mode.

Thanks guys,

There was a used one listed on Ebay for real cheap, so debated if it would be worth purchasing. I passed due to the non rotating head.

Thanks again,
Ralph
