Smallest/lightest h-shoe flash with manual variable output?

  1. I really need to pick up the lightest/smallest possible flash that has manual/variable power output (low GN is fine), a tough call I know :)
    I do not know current options in the market.. Any insights appreciated!
  2. the flashes on those links don't really look small or light.
  3. Arnab,
    the flashes below are rather small models with variable power output. I've never used the Nikon, but the Leica is a great little flash. I've used the (now discontinued and replaced by the SF-24D) SF-20 once with a big shoot-through-umbrella and the tiny strobe saved my day.
    - Nikon SB-30 (58.5 x 83.5 x 36 mm and 92 g without CR-123a-batterie) - 3 manual power settings (full, 1/8, 1/32 - additional +-1/2-stop flash level output compensation ), slave function, wide-angle-diffusor
    - Leica SF-20 (66 x 109 x 40 mm and 180 g without the 2 CR123a batteries) - 4 manual power settings (full, 1/2, 1/4 and 1/8)
    Hope this helps, georg
  4. Thanks Alex/Starvy/Georg.
    I should close the loop here -- after a lot of research into current options I settled for Sunpak PF20XD which is unique in its class.
    I also picked up the Metz 15 MS-1 wireless TTL ringflas and am very happy with it.
