I wanted to drop you an email with my personal experience with the T5D-r Qflash. I purchased one over a year ago for the extra power it claimed. I was never able to get the flash to work as it should, probably because I tried to figure it out on my own. I recently had you send me the learning DVD and watched it several times.

I photograph mostly sports, and usually Hockey more than anything else. I photograph several large youth hockey tournaments each year, most notably the Nike-Bauer International Invite in Chicago for the last 3 years.

My biggest problem is having no more than 30 seconds to group the 1st and 2nd place teams on the ice and get a usable team shot with my digital (Nikon D3) and flash.

After watching and learning from the DVD, I have realized your flash does everything it claims and more! I have attached a team shot taken this year under the gun, with about 30 seconds to nail the shot (no do-overs). This shot has no post processing whatsoever, other than being cropped and reduced for the web. Needless to say, I feel the flash was worth every penny.

I have never been able to get this kind of lighting with any shoe mount flash.

Thanks again. Jerome Turbyville
