Yeah, that's what I was telling him Nick. I searched for your post in this forum and I was planning on buying a FZ10/20, but I just love the IR cappabilities and size of the FZ1, besides I don't print bigger than 8X10. So, I'm improving the capabilities of my trusty FZ1v2 that I have to admit falls short indors. I am lookinf for this flas and maybe a diffuser, but compare the 68 dollars to the $8!!! wow what a deal...
Why thank you, I'm flattered (Goldar = Nick Trop at work). Yes, it is lacking indoors. We're on the same page with the FZ-1v2. The FZ1 FAQ posted as a "sticky" thread at the top of this forum gives you all you need to know. Very worthwhile read, if you haven't read it already.

Considering the cost as it is now I still find it a valuable addition to the chameleon camera (FZ1v2). I bought it straight away based on what NickTrop (Goldar) had posted and the results of the shots he took with it.

That is truly a deal wombat for any flash that does the job. This slave flash does it all.

At the stage of purchasing the Vivitar I hadn't read anything about slave flashes, and wasn't sure if the flash would be compatible. Only after reading Nics review (I Use all Nics reviews as a starting point, thanks Nick for some insightful and very helpful reviews.) did I realise I missed out on a great opportunity. Mind you as I left, my arms where loaded with photo albums, tripods, Camera bags, an underwater camera ECT ECT.
By the end I spent $50 AU and walked away with just under $500 worth of gear.
