Affordable HSS Capable Flash

April 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

Recently, I was in the market for a second Flash that was HSS (High Speed Sync) capable. My equipment budget is often very tight so I'm always looking for good deals on useful gear that won't leave me broke. There are many "off brand" flashes out there so it can be a little tricky to wade through the many Chinese built offerings that saturate the market. After a good bit of research and comparisons, I decided to go with the "Triopo TR-988" which I first found on Amazon for 75$, with a little more research I found the same flash with a set of Godox Triggers and a pack of Godox Flash Gels for only 5$ more, the triggers alone go for 25$ on Amazon. This is a significant savings over the more well known HSS capable Yongnou 586 flash that goes for 125.00 or the Yongnou 600 for 150.00

This flash is built fairly well, comparable to my Yongnou 565 but like the Yongnou, its not a Canon or Nikon, the battery door is a bit lack luster with what seems like a design that won't take much abuse. There are very few reviews online for this flash so aside from the product specs I had very little to go on as well as the price that is hard to beat. My goal was simple, add HSS capability to my lineup, this flash will do that job and with time I will update how well it holds up.
