This flash does appear that it would meet the requirements, specifically the bounce feature that allows you to aim the flash upward to diffuse the light off a larger surface such as the ceiling and includes TTL metering. The pricing (with your educational discount) and features are very comparable to our recommended light meter, the Metz mecablitz 20 C-2 Flash available at B&H part number:ME20C2. Be sure to choose the correct model that is compatible with your brand of camera.

Is this flash still considered for Photojournalism even though it was approved over a year ago?

Thanks!

Hi Brittaney,

Yes, it would still meet the minimum requirements.  This a very low-end flash and can get a student through the class. If your area is photojournalism or documentary, we recommend a higher-end flash that would offer greater flexibility in a professional career in these areas.
