Excerpt: With freshly charged eneloops inside, this unit burned out after the first flash with a smell of burning electronics. It's the first dud product I've received from Canon as a 25-year customer.
Excerpt: Great fill light, slave function allows me to use it for macro photoraphy. Size, slave function, its straight forward easy of use and the fact its an OEM flash are the primary reasons why bought the unit. I also needed a small flash when I wasn't in a situation where I couldn't bring a bigger flash
Pros: Compact, Easy To Use, Good For Fill Flash, Lightweight
Excerpt: I got this to compliment my G12 which it does well. From full wide to telephoto the exposure is right on. I'm looking forward to this travel kit when I don't have room for my L-Series lenses and body.
Excerpt: This speed light is pretty good considering the price. I used it for an evening, all indoor wedding - the batteries wore down after about 2 1/2 hours of shooting and the flash sometimes took a moment to catch up after continuous shooting...other than that, the photo results were great
Excerpt: I was not sure such a small flash would work for me, but I've been really impressed with the 270EX II. I've found that a bounce flash is the key to natural looking interior photos, and this flash has worked well with the Canon SL1 body in our home with 8 ft. ceilings.
