The Canon Speedlite 480EG is a grip-style TTL automatic, external sensor-based automatic and manual flash (with bounce function). It attaches to the camera via TTL Shoe Cord E, Synchro Cord 480 or with optional slave unit as off-camera cordless light source. Its Guide Number is 160 (ISO 100, ft. @ 35mm coverage angle) with a flash coverage of 20-135 mm (using wide and tele panels). Flash duration is 1/850 seconds to 1/20,000 secones with First curtain, X-Sync synchronisation. The TTL automatic controls the flash control system either via metering light reflected from the film plane (with TTL Shoe Cord E connection), external sensor auto flash control (with Synchro Cord 480) or variable-power Manual. It has a flash coupling range of 2.4-104.9 ft. (with 50mm f/1.4 @ ISO 100- TTL autoflash). This unit requires Transistor Pack E: Six size-C LR14 alkaline-manganese (Battery Magazine TP) or NR-SC Ni-Cd (sealed Ni-Cd Pack TP) batteries for operation. This gives the unit up to 100-700 (alkaline-manganese)/90-600 Ni-Cd number of flashes with recycling time of 0.2 to 17 seconds (alkaline-manganese)/0.2 to 6 seconds (Ni-Cd).
