Voking VK360N flash for Nikon cameras review by Bill Hall (see previous reviews):
Did you ever put an external flash on your mirrorless Nikon camera and thought, gosh! That thing’s as big as my camera! Well, the Voking VK360N, now available for Nikon cameras, and also available for other cameras, is a compact but fully featured flash that looks more in place with a compact camera. It’s also handy as a travel companion on a larger DSLR. Either way, you won’t give up functionality for convenience.
This flash is compatible with any camera that has a Nikon hot-shoe. With its small size, a full feature set, and at a current price of $45.99 on Amazon, this flash should appeal to a broad spectrum of photographers. It is compatible with the latest Nikon professional full-frame DSLR cameras such as the D5, D6, D850, and the APS-C cameras such as the D500. It’s also compatible with the mirrorless Z 50, Z 5, Z 6, Z 7, Z 6ii, and Z7ii cameras. And it is compatible with the D3400, D3300, D3200, D5600, D750, D7200, D5300, D5500, D7100, D3100, and other Nikon DSLR cameras. For more information visit the Amazon product listing.
The size of the flash is about 4.25” X 2.5” X 1.5” (110mm X 65mm X 35mm). It weighs 5.3 oz (150g) without batteries.
This flash has full iTTL compatibility. For most purposes, you can set it for iTTL, put it on your camera, and it just works. You can set exposure compensation in the iTTL mode. In addition, it has all of the features that you’d expect from a Nikon flash. It can be operated in full manual mode. It can act as a master to another flash or in slave mode. It has a repeat flash mode to enable multiple flashes while your shutter is open to capture the action. Voking calls this the stroboscopic mode. And, it supports front and rear curtain sync modes.
Even with the compact size of this flash, it has a decent amount of power. The guide number is 32 at 105mm focal length and ISO 100, and the color temperature is 5600K. Bounce flash is supported. You can easily rotate the flash from 60 degrees left to 90 degrees right, and from 7 degrees down to 90 degrees up. Adding the included diffuser will help even more to produce soft light.
The screen is bright and easy to read even in full sunlight, and the settings are easy to change.
There is a modeling light that can help you pose a portrait, and also it has the ability to turn on an auxiliary light to use with videos. The video light isn’t super bright, but it works well as a sort of fill-in light.
This flash is powered by two AA batteries. Rechargeable AA NI-MH batteries can be charged in the flash by using the USB plug. A set of batteries will last an estimated 100-1500 flashes.
What’s in the box? The flash, a fabric bag with belt loop, diffuser, stand, manual, and warranty card.
