Fritz the Blitz Flash

I bought the Fritz the Blitz few months ago, when I needed a better flash than the Ringflash. The Ringflash is amazing, but it has a little problem with the LC-A and the LC-A+: you can’t see through the viewfinder when the flash is mounted on the camera. So you won’t be able to understand exactly what you are shooting (or not shooting).

The real big problem with flashes like the Ringflash is that subjects are often out of frame or cut. This happens because the viewfinder is covered by the structure of the flash, so you are not able to see what’s inside the frame.

Fritz the Blitz comes with selected models of the La Sardina cameras, but now is sold separately, so you can experiment all the amazing features of this powerful flash (with full control of the power of it).

The Fritz the Blitz Flash has a different structure, because it has an extension bracket (which is composed by two pieces, so you can use it with all cameras) and it does not cover the viewfinder. It’s compatible with all cameras which have a tripod thread and a hot-shoe adapter, but also with all La Sardina cameras (if you use it without the bracket).

According to Lomography, this is the most powerful flash ever among the Lomography ones; it also has three distance power settings, in order to have the best results in every situation: macro (near subject), portrait (approximately 1 meter) and group (when you have many people inside the frame).
