Excerpt: Nice as a fill flash and street photography. Wish there was a way to turn off the model light. Annoying and totally prevents candid night photography. (This may be possible on newer bodies - but there does not appear to be any to do so on the flash directly.)
Excerpt: I bough this flash in particular to photograph my twin daughters. It works great in 14' ceilings covering an extensive proportion of my home/studio. I like how easy it was to synch the flash with the Canon 7D, and how fast you can see the amazing results of appropriated lighting for DYI portraiture.
Excerpt: This is a good flash for the money. I don't want to lug around my 580exii its small enough to fit into a bag but just powerful enough to shoot 6 to 8 feet across the room It will also aim up for bounce flash. But it you won't be sorry
Canon Speedlite 270EX II Flash for Canon SLR Cameras
8 June 2015
Excerpt: I got this for my 5d II to use for fill flash, and as an on-board equiv flash head. I also use it on my sl1, because with the wide 10-18mm attached, the on board flash casts a shadow. Canon recently had a sale and this was well worth the investment Beach great service and fast shipping as usual.
Pros: Small Lightweight Fits in pocket slave mode wide to tele adjustment flash head bends to bounce flash off ceiling. Built in wireless remote to operate shutter.
Cons: no wireless control for external flash low guide number= low power.
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
