You light up my life

  • 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

Nice little compact flash

  • 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 have a Canon 6d and wanted a flash the i could take on my pocket and this one is perfect. It´s not a flash for a pro, but for special occasions like parties is perfect, even not being a powerful one.

Canon Speedlite 270EX II

DoriS, Crutchfield
16 July 2014
  • Summary: So far, I have used it in a bar photographing musicians. It does exactly what it says. I'm using RAW and single shot. I'm not sure how it will do if I'm using it on a rapid fire mode due to recycle time. It did cut out quickly and I didn't have other batteries with me.
  • Pros: Compact, light, easy to use, easy on and off.
  • Cons: Burns through batteries. Wish I could have more control on tilt degree. The available tilt settings are preset.

  • Excerpt: I jsut started using this nice little flash. I use it mostly or mild fill-in, along with a diffuser, and it works very, very well. It is small and light so I now carry it without a second thought. I should have purchased this years ago!

Small, Handy, Useful

  • 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.

Good light

  • 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.
