Neewer VK750 II i-TTL Speedlite Flash with LCD Display for Nikon D7100 D7000 D5200 D5100 D5000 D3000 D3100 D300 D300S D700 D600 D90 D80 D70 D70S D60 D50 and All Other Nikon DSLR Cameras Review

You are reading this thinking one thing, wow this VK750 MK II is REALLY cheap for a TTL flash ($55 mid-Sept 2014), it must be a piece of junk. While this is not a great strobe, it is a very good value for the low price paid. First, the Neewer company is a distributor of goods made by other (Chinese) companies. Neewer makes NOTHING themselves. That is not a bad thing, as Neewer branded gear is almost always cheaper than the name brand items, think of them as the generic brand line sold at your local grocery store but made by the big name companies. This VK750 II strobe appears to be a re-branded Meike MK951 strobe which was introduced around 2010. One of the reasons this is so cheap is that the company is probably closing them out to get rid of them. The Meike MK951 was not a very good strobe, and some reviewers claimed it would drain batteries even when the strobe was turned off! I have been testing my VK750 II with the Nikon D700 trying to find fault or a reason to send it back before the one month return period expires. So far I can’t find a good reason (for my needs) to send it back. Here is what the 750 II can do. You can shoot iTTL on camera with rear curtain sync. The strobe head claims to zoom automatically from 18mm-180mm. I say claims because I think Neewer/Meike is exaggerating the zoom range, I believe 20mm-105mm is more accurate. Manual mode full power down to 1/128th power in 1/3 or full stops. The strobe has a port to plug in an external battery pack such as the excellent Pixel packs (TD-382 works awesome). The external packs will drop the recycle times from 4 seconds to 1. 5 seconds for a full-power pop. There is a PC port to attach a PC cord or Pocket Wizard for off-camera use. You can also use the built-in optical slave modes S1 and S2 which “sees” the light from another strobe (on your camera) and then triggers itself. You are much better off using one of the great cheap radio triggers available here on Amazon, so the S1 and S2 modes are of little interest to me. If you are looking for a diffuser to use over the head the models which fit the SB-910 work well, I have been happy with the XIT XTHD910 Hard Dome diffuser for the Nikon SB-900/910. Very nicely constructed of thick plastic and cheap. The exposures are accurate in both direct and bounced modes, so no real complaints here. I have used the strobe now for about a week and a half on the same batteries and don’t see any signs of the batteries draining faster that usual. Now here is what it won’t do. No High-Speed HHS synch, no CLS commander/master mode (even though the manual says clearly the mode is included and describes how to use it! Weird!). I tried using the flash off-camera with a Nikon SC-17 cord (which works with the Nikon SB-910) and the 750 II strobe acted as if it was not connected to the camera. That is, it would not fire at all. Bummer. Another fault is that there is no way to turn off the sleep mode which comes on after 3 minutes, so using it with a radio trigger off camera might be a pain if the strobe keeps turning off, if your trigger has a wake trigger mode it might work out. Another weird quirk the Meike strobes have is that the flash ready light in the viewfinder will stay lit even though the strobe is recycling. That is the flash is telling the camera that it is ready to shoot when it really isn’t. I have a Meike MK910 (perfect clone of the SB-910) and it does the same thing. If you are looking for a decent strobe for on-camera use such as event work or longer lens use (think 70-200mm body as opposed to your wide angle body) than this is hard to pass up at $55 each. With a metal hotshoe the electronics inside will fail before the physical body will. Even if it fails after a year or so you are still ahead. I might buy an extra one, it’s cheaper than what the Vivitar 283 used to cost! To recap, if this was priced at $100 I’d say in the current marketplace to pass on this strobe, but for $55? Sounds like a deal to me if you can live with the limitations I mentioned. UPDATE: 9-27-2014: I went ahead and bought another one I like it so much. I have tested it with the excellent Yongnuo RF-603 II wireless flash triggers (for Nikon) and the 603’s “wake-up” the 750 MKII every time from sleep mode. This means you can use this little sucker off-camera with a softbox/umbrella on top of a lightstand and with the port for an external battery pack you can really go to town. -Read Reviews-

Prior to using this flash, our family photos looked dull and color less. If we used the built-in flash, everything was washed out. We take mostly indoor photos of our family using our Nikon D3300. We are very surprised on the difference this flash makes. We are by no means professionals. I turned on the camera, turned on the flash, and did not change any of the functions. Maybe I will figure out those at some point, but maybe not. For basic use, which is what I need it for, this works perfectly. Example photos. Taken while pointed directly at a very reflective chest. Photo #1, built-in flashPhoto #2, no flashPhoto #3, VK750 flash (pointed up, using bounce card and diffuser)
