Gotta have it--a no brainer

Canon Kate, B&H Photo
2 weeks ago
  • Excerpt: It's not that it's a powerful flash--it's not. I don't intend to use it for it flash capabilities on my Canon t3i or 6D, but as a master to my off camera speedlite. At that price (I paid less than $[$]) it is 1/3 or so the cost of a remote and works beautifully with my 270x flash and 430x flash. An excellent buy. As always, great service and competitive prices for B & H.
  • Pros: Lightweight, Reliable, Value

Better than expected

Philly Photog, B&H Photo

  • Excerpt: Needed very portable flash for 6D - this works great for fill flash, and basic family/travel photography. Much better than I expected. Can't wait to try the wireless features with my 600EX I just purchased too. I don't like how it turns off automatically so quickly. The recycle time is a bit slow, but that was known going in to this.
  • Pros: Easy To Use, Lightweight

Wireless flash control

Scotty, B&H Photo
12 March 2014
  • Excerpt: I have a Canon T3i with a built-in flash that provides wireless control for my Canon 430EX IIs. This flash duplicates the wireless control features of the built-in flash, but adds two additional control features: wireless hi-speed sync and control for a C group. When mounted in the hot shoe of my Powershot G12 (which has no wireless flash control capabilities of its own), this flash adds limited wireless flash control to the G12 (no second curtain sync or ABC Group...

Master flash for pro body

Shaun, B&H Photo
6 March 2014
  • Excerpt: If you have a Pro Canon body and lack a pop-up flash, the 90EX is a cheap companion flash that can be used as a master flash. I would never use this unit as a real flash, but it works well as a master flash to trigger other off-camera flashes.<br /><br />The downsides are that it doesn't have much range outdoors and the flash doesn't rotate. This limits your use to indoors where your flashes are in front of you.

Nifty little devise w/ hidden properties

Fito, B&H Photo
8 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Bottom Line: <br /><br />Is it powerful? No.<br />Is putting a 580ex on an EOS-M ridiculous? Yes.<br />Does the flash come in handy? Resounding Yes.<br /><br />Notes: Its conveniently tiny, does the job.<br /><br />HIDDEN PROPERTIES!!!<br />This can be used to control external flashes on your full frame cameras for a fraction of the price!!!! This alone warrants the 5 stars. Awesome buy.
  • Pros: Compact, Durable, Easy to Use, Hidden Feature, Inexpensive, Lightweight

Not bad in a pinch

Michael Springfield, B&H Photo
3 January 2014
  • Excerpt: Not a bad flash but unless you can find the &quot;white box&quot; it is not worth the price. At an MSRP of $149 it is way too expensive. At that price point you will be better off with slightly larger 270EX for an extra $10 or better yet the 270EX II for an extra $20. I paid $79 for my &quot;white box&quot; and am OK with that price just for the portability.
  • Pros: Compact, Lightweight
  • Cons: Can Be Harsh, Red Eye Almost Guaranteed

great little add

JD, B&H Photo
27 December 2013
  • Excerpt: I originally ordered this for the eos-m. Seems like a great fit. Works just as advertised, and even threw it on the 5diii when I'm using it for bts or social gathering. I would highly recommend. Granted, please keep in mind this is a basic unit - this will not replace your 580's or 600's, not by a long shot. But definitely worth the price.
