    On eBay I have found a very cheap flash, Triopo TR-950, with some promising features like power 35 (in meters) and powerset down to 1/128. It also have a PC-terminal and refelector that is adjustable. Link:

    Has anyone tested this flash? I guess the power is lower than the promised 35 (they usually are, arenĀ“t they) which would suite me even better.

    I am also interested to buy a broken flash of this. I am only going to check how the reflector is mounted on the control/battery part of the flash so it doesn't matter how broken it is or how unrepairable it is. I have in mind to buy a few of these and make a special application if they prove to be the right raw material. If I succeed with the project I will report it here in TalkNEX.
