A friend of mine, Xela (CLICK HERE FOR HER BLOG), asked me about a flash for her Panasonic G2. I had to do a little digging as I really have never looked into a flash for Panasonic before. I was surprised to find that the options out there were pretty sparse. First I ran into the Yongnuo Speedlite Yn460. This looks like a pretty basic flash and the reviews out there on the web were.. well, there were none. One of Panasonic’s flash solutions is their Panasonic DMW-FL360 External Flash (GN36). The customer reviews were all positive but the price is on the hefty side. In my experience there is often a less expensive alternative to name brand gear, so I kept digging.
Enter the Zeikos ZE-SB1000. Alas, this flash looks like it has some potential! Amazon rendered one lonely but positive review for this flash so I checked in with B&H for reviews. The testimonials I found on B&H were less than impressive but not terrible. Still, I don’t feel comfortable personally recommending the Zeikos without trying it out first hand. Xela, unless my trusty readers can recommend a flash for your G2, for now I’ll say try the Zeikos out (you can alway return it) or shell out a car note for the Panasonic option.flash, G2, Panasonic, speedlite, Yougnuo, Zeikos
