Consumer Alert: Sunpak DigiFlash 3000 Sucks

One evening in a Wal-Mart photo section, I spotted the Sunpak DigiFlash 3000.  These external flashes come in two varieties, one for Canon DSLR cameras and one for Nikon DSLR cameras.  For fifty-nine bucks, I thought this was a bargain.

I purchased one the following week.  In the beginning, no problems started.  As I tested the flash at home, nothing appeared wrong.  For this flash, I created a flash diffuser.

Friday and Saturday nights, I used to photograph for The Beacham, a nightclub located in Orlando. One Friday night, I used the DigiFlash. Things appeared okay in the beginning.  Well, no it didn’t.  Diffusing flash causes two times less lighting.  With some flashes, that wouldn’t be a problem.  Yet, this did cause a problem with the DigiFlash.  Even black folks aren’t supposed to show up this dark.

Being in a closed setting, the DigiFlash and my diffuser did an okay job.  Still, I had to correct images in Photoshop. Yet, I was happy with the following pic. The flash didn’t overexpose details.

Yet, sometimes, even Photoshop couldn’t correct problems.

Next, things ran even more weird.  The flash started underexposing worse than before.

Fed up, I stopped using the DigiFlash.   I went back to Wal-Mart and got my money back.

Lesson learned?  Wal-Mart sells cheap useless products.  Plus Sunpak’s DigiFlash 3000 is a piece of shit.
