Excerpt: Unfortunately Canon did not put a pop-up, built-in, flash into EOS 6D, so one is forced to get this small flash. The flash itself is great, especially if you use a diffuser over it's head, especially a cloth diffuser for indoors. The cloth diffuser works outdoors as well as indoors. The head directs upwards but has no twist to sides. But, all in all, a nice little flash. Remember, it is a SMALL flash.
Excerpt: While obviously not as powerful or versatile as my 600EX, I can use the 270EX II in places that I simply couldn't (or wouldn't want to) use a bulky pro speedlite. <br /><br />Travel is my main use for the 270EX II. I use the 270EX II for fill flash on a 6D and 1DX, and it does the job perfectly provided I know its limitations for power, and work within these.<br /><br />I'm really happy with the results and how small, light and discrete the flash is.
Excerpt: I needed a light for work functions that were in dimly lit rooms. The camera flash was not enough and fruistrating me. The Speedlite fills the frame nicely and doesn't over power the shots. Plus, I can move it to bounce or mute the light. It came with a diffuser that has been helpful.
Excerpt: I got this flash for urban exploration and to have something small when I'm carrying my camera in tight areas or crowds. This flash throws plenty of light for shots near and far. Not quite a replacement for larger Canon flashes, but a very good alternative where compact and lightweight is needed.
