The Neewer VK750 II leaves me wondering why I bothered to buy expensive brand name flashes in the past. For 1/6th the cost of a Nikon SB-700, the VK750 II offers a nearly identical flash in form, power and function. If you understand the limitations of this flash, it’ll save you a ton of money and you’ll be just as happy with it as you are with the name brand alternative.

I’m not a singer, so I have only tested this mic while speaking. In terms of build quality, the microphone is well made with a solid metal body but the shock mount feels a little cheap because it is made out of plastic. The kit includes an XLR to 3.5mm cable, a metal pop filter, the shock mount and an adapter for mic stands.
