Hey,

Has anyone used these Pixco PG708 flashes before:

http://www.ebay.com …ashes&hash=item​3f2473a6b5 (external link)

It seems like they are knock offs of the YN568s (LOL, knock offs of a knock off...), but I am curious to see if anyone has used them before and what their experience is with them.

I have been using my old manual flashes (Nikon SB24, Vivitar 285HV) for the past 6 years and was looking at getting a modern eTTL flash to see what all the fuss is about. I was set on the YN565/YN568, but I don't mind paying $80 if it is basically the same flash.

Thanks in advance.

The flash looks like the "Triopo TR-850EX", or possibly a variant of the "Triopo TR-850EX" discussed here:

and also looks like a variant of the Polaroid discussed here:

This basic design, with several different design variations, seems to be popping up in a lot of places (using different marketing names).

Enjoy! Lon
