5.0 out of 5 stars but it has good colour balance, Oct. 3 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This flash is full-featured. I have not tried using it in "commander mode", so I cannot speak to that, but it has good colour balance, and swivels in many direction, including backwards. This is really handy if the subject is close and there is a white wall or reflector behind you. It is sufficiently powerful for most uses.
There is a diffuser, a fluorescent filter, and incandescent filter, a little stand and a nice case included. (I made the mistake of buying a diffuser at the same time, so now I have two!) It does not work with film cameras - so hang on to your old SB-80 if you shoot film.

3.0 out of 5 stars but the combat system easily adapts to ANY setting, Sept. 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I have all the different versions of RQ, from RQ2 on, and I haven't really bought into all the changes. That said, RQ is THE system for roleplaying. If you want to play fantasy, the rules are complete, but the combat system easily adapts to ANY setting. We have played "RQ in Space" for 15 years (maybe longer) using the central rules and some sci-fi tables and planet descriptions from GURPS. We played Space 1889, but with these superior rules for combat. We are currently playing 1930's pulp adventures using RQ rules and Call of Cthulhu weapons tables.
RQ does not use "levels" like D&D, but your character progresses by improving skills, and occasionally attributes. This makes for more believable PC's and more realistic combat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Far better (and possibly cheaper) than ink refills!, Sept. 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Clear bodies make it easy to tell if there is still ink inside. Ink refills do not reset the chips inside the cartridges, so your printer will always think they are empty, and you have to override it. Not so with these! My MG5400 is quite happy.

A fun read. Johannes makes trip into Lovecraft's Dreamlands, so it is quite bizarre!

3.0 out of 5 stars Good if you lose the one that comes with the flash, Sept. 30 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This seems to be exactly the same as the one that comes with the SB-700. Please note - the SB-700 includes one! So, if you are ordering a new SB-700, don't do what I did, and order this at the same time.
I suppose I will always have a spare...but then, the SB-700 comes with a great case so that I will never lose the original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some great songs. A couple songs are disappointing, Aug. 25 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Don't Try This at Home (Audio CD)
Some great songs. A couple songs are disappointing, when the talking goes on a bit too long (e.g. Pinball Wizard starts off good but falls apart).
