LumoPro LP160 Hacking

The LumoPro LP160 is:
  • Community suggestion produced hot shoe flash produced by LumoPro
  • Successor to the LP120
  • Supports syncing via hotshoe, 3.5mm jack, optical slaving, and intelligent optical slaving(ignore pre-flashes).
  • Runs on 4 AA batteries
  • 7 levels of power adjustment: 1/1, 1/2, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16, 1/32, 1/64
  • 7 levels of flash zoom adjustment: 28mm-105mm
  • The unit outputs about 60-70Watts/second
You can find more information at the LumoPro website and you can pickup one for a great price at the MidWestPhotoExchange:
I strongly suggest picking one up if you are looking for an inexpensive flash unit with a good deal of power, twist and tilt head, optical and cable syncing, and controls for manual zoom and power control. This is a great unit and is basically half the cost of a Nikon or Canon unit. The only thing you don't get is eTTL, though you can obviously optical trigger this flash.
