Performance

This is a great flash and must have for your Sony A300. The pop-up flash works good, but the Sony HVL-F42AM provides a day and night improvement in low light situations. Skin tones are natural looking especially when photographing people of Color. No darker than normal complexion. With just decent battery life and auto focus off; the flash will keep pace with no problems. I am more than satisfied with the Sony HVL-F42AM and would recommend to anyone.

Very good flash unit

by Mike on 8/1/2008

Attached to my Sony A350 this flash fills all my needs. After trying to get by on natural light for too long, I realized that adding flash solved so many problems. I leave this unit attached to the camera and turn it on only when I need it. It works flawlessly. I keep an Omni-bounce diffuser attached to the flash (the OMPZ8 for the HVL-F36AM fits this unit). A good buy for the money. I would recommend to anyone needing good supplemental flash.
