  • 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.

  • 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. The head directs upwards but has no twist to sides. But, all in all, a nice little flash. Remember, it is a SMALL flash.

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.

Perfect size for my new Canon SL1!

  • Excerpt: I have several Canon Speedlight 580ex ii flashes that I use with other larger Canon cameras but was looking for something small and portable to match my new (small) SL1. This flash is the perfect size to include in the bag with my SL1. It takes up very little space and does a great job of providing lighting for the quick "on-the-go" shots I take with this camera.

Canon Speedlite 270EX II

DoriS, Crutchfield

  • 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. Went through them quickly I thought. Be sure you bring extras.
  • 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.

Small, but powerful

  • 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.

Serves its purpose.

  • Excerpt: I bought this flash to help optimize the carry-on luggage I can carry - Etihad airlines has a strict 15 lb limit for economy class passengers. The best use of this flash unit is to supplement the light rather than as the main source of illumination.
