No English Manual I just received this flash today. It was very easy to use, and the two test photos I took look great. One problem: the instruction "booklet," not much bigger than a postage stamp, was in Chinese. Period. At least, I could see the polarity of the places to insert the batteries, assuming AA, as the holes were larger than for AAA. No problem figuring out where to place the unit, and how, but why should a novice have to figure out what might be obvious to a more experienced user? The box surrounding the unit is almost all in English, but the little poor excuse for a manual was only in Chinese. Otherwise, the flash unit looks good on the camera, was easy to install, and appears to work well, but without the possibility of tilting, or any other adjustments. If you want a simple, easy to use flash (as I did), this is good. 4It was exactly what I wanted I already have a 430 EX Flash for my cameras, but it is relatively big and bulky and for quick shots of the kids or snapshot type of photos, I often would rather use the on-camera flash rather than get out my larger external flash. When I got my full frame camera without a built in flash, I found I really missed having the built in flash in some scenarios. I looked around for a really small flash that would be not be so bulky but would provide me with a flash when I need it.This flash, although a little spendy for what it is, fit the bill perfectly for me. It has better range and performance than the on-camera flash in a really small package, and it still can do bounce flash when I want. It doesn't take up any more space in my camera bag than the battery and charger, and I am able to fit it in my already tightly packed camera bag. It also is small enough that I could put it in some pant pockets or jacket/shirt pocket if needed.I have not yet used it in challenging conditions to test range, but it has worked well in the instances when I have desired to use it. If you want a really small and inconspicuous flash that works effectively and are willing to pay the cost, I think this is a nice flash for you. 5Canon has Improved and Refined the Small Flash This is probably one of the best small flashes on the market of any of the major camera manufacturers. When you need a small, lightweight and portable flash the 270EXII is it and you won't have to sacrifice too much on features.Pros:1. Small size and light weight. It smaller and lighter than the older Canon 220EX.2. An adjustable head for diffusing the light.3. Takes only 2 AA and has good battery life. It is better than previous Canon small flashes.4. Light output and range is excellent for a small flash even on a full frame camera.5. Recycle time is great with Eneloop type rechargeable batteries. I can hold the shutter down and get 6-7 shots off continually before any significant wait time.6. Relatively low profile on camera body.7. It is superior to any built-in flash on the camera body.Cons:1. On a full frame camera, at less than 28mm focal length, you will have some vignetting. At 24mm the light drop off is very visible.2. The case is just a nylon type pouch. In the past Canon gave nice cases. This is not a big deal, but worth mentioning.3. The price is a bit high in my opinion, but well worth the function and there is no real alternative. 5Awesome for those who like to pack light (no pun intended) I previously owned the orginial version, the 270EX, and I can say that the new version is outstanding and well worth the price. I use this on my 60D and can't begin to tell you how much more creative possibilities you can achieve utilizing the wireless capability of this flash. I would highly recommend this version over the original if you have a built-in transmitter like in the 7D, 60D, or T3i. If you like to be a minimalist and travel light, then this flash is for you. Its about the size of two decks of playing cards put together and requires only 2 AA batteries. Eneloops are the best for this.One of the best things I like about Canon is actually this flash (previously the original). Its light, small and still does bounce flash (where you point the flash at a ceiling to redirect the light). It has manual zoom (only two settings though) so you dont hear the motor of the more poiwerful speedlites. But when they added remote shutter capability and wireless trigger I was sold before it even came out. What it lacked in swivel (turning left to right, critical for shooting in the vertical orientation), it makes up in being able to fire off camera. That alone opens up so much more creativity (place it behind the subject for a silhouette effect for example). This is the best deal under 200 bucks to venture into flash photography.After playing around with it though, there are limitations I want to point out. The remote shutter is not wireless but rather IR line of sight kind of thing, and you need to be pointing the flash towards the front of the camera for it to work. Also, its always a 2 second counter, no instant shutter release whether or not your drive mode says so. On few occassions I get no wireless connection to the flash, but once I adjust my position a few feet or so I get it back instantly. For what it is, this still works out to be a whole lot of possibilities. With the 60D, I am able to fire both my built-in flash and the 270EX II off camera at the same time, and, change the intensity ratio between the two outputs (1:1, 2:1, 1:8, etc). Those with the T3i can do this too.So there you have it. If you have built-in wireless in your Canon body and like to travel light, this flash comes with my highest recommendation. Otherwise, the original is just as good without the wireless. If you like making videos the new 320ex version might interest you with its modeling light, and while its a little bigger and heavier (4 AA batteries), its still a good chioce in my opinion. Hope this helps!UPDATE 9.22.11 ***********I discovered that I can fire this flash on-camera with high-speed sync up to 1/8000 sec on my 60D, which opens up some possibilites with freeze-action shots or isolating the subject with a dark background (see my "bee" pictures). There is a setting on the Flash Menu to enable this. You can also do 1st or 2nd curtain settings, and, evaluative TTL2 or average exposure. For the most part the flash does a very good job throttling up or down depending on the focus distance. I didn't know this before, but, since this is an automatic flash, the way to under or overexpose (darken/brighten) an image does not depend on the camera's exposure compensation, but rather the flash's exposure compensation (which you adjust in-camera). On a fresh set of batteries, this flash has a very fast recycle time and good burst rate that is able to keep up with my 60D for about 7 to 10 bursts before slowing down.Off camera as a wireless slave, however, the sync capabilities get watered down a bit. Fastest sync is only 1/250 sec now, and the flash exposure compensation, while working as normal, really depends on where you setup the flash (the flash by itself doesnt know how far it is from the subject). I find I get better results when the camera and this flash are about the same focal distance away from the subject. Burst rate slows down too, before able to do the high-speed rate on-camera, now only capable of low-speed burst rate. Still, I adore this flash and take it everywhere I go, which is so easy because its so small. Sometimes I wish it had more power, but, adjusting the manual zoom to tele and/or upping the ISO helps. It is still about 2 times more powerful than the 60D's built-in flash (27 GN versus 13 GN). Oh for those wondering, you can remotely trigger your camera in front of you and have the flash fire as a wireless slave for the same photo.UPDATE 9.26.11 *************Started to play around with the wireless flash with close-up and macro photography over the weekend. I'm really enjoying this flash! I can see how important it is to have adequate light when you do really close up shots (see my other "bee" pictures). Having the ability to position the 270EX II anywhere is so liberating compared to using on-camera flash. You never get that dreaded half-circle shadow at the bottom of your pictures. Using bounce of course does help, but what do you use when you are outside? In any case, any of the bigger brothers, 320ex, 430ex, and 580ex all do wireless flash as well. It's just that this one is so small and compact, and the most simplest of them all (just 3 settings: OFF , Wireless Slave, and ON). 5Perfect size for leaving on camera all the time Purchased this model flash for a canon 5D, since it didn't have a built in flash. I was looking for the most compact flash possible, as I wanted to keep the flash on the camera all the time. The size is good and not too bulky when attached to the camera. 5Small flash - big light Obviously not nearly as bright as my 580EX-II, but it matches perfectly with the Canon M5 mirrorless. Throws more light than the built-in flash, but easily fits in the small shoulder bag and isn't too bulky on the M5.A note of caution: This wasn't available directly from Amazon when I originally ordered it, and I got the international/Japan version. Returned and re-ordered directly from Amazon and got the USA version. 5Good for what it is... Just picked this up and its my first off cam flash. I am maybe a year into the world of DSLR and itd really starting to take ahold of me. That being said, I am not a pro, nor do I plan to be. I just want to come home with some great pics, where ever I may roam. I put much thought into this unit having also considered the 320 and 480. So let me tell you why I went with this and what I think of it to help the non pro out there.1. This unit is small! 2 AAs is outstanding. I can take it anywhere and have it all the time. From experience I know I would not have one ready to go if it were too big/heavy. I use a smallish cam bag that I can easily with this into with my other gear. It perfect for trip to Disney, the beach, or a sporting event and does not take over your life. In the bag I also fit a T2i, 18-200 with hood ON facing forward, extra batteries for all, cleaning equip, remotes, and if I really wanted to put a 50mm in I can. Like I said this is a small bag such that I can use just it, or fit the whole thing in a backpack along with anything else I may need. Its been my perfect solution after real world use and 3 dif bags later.2. Cost was somewhat important, but with less than 100 seperating the 3 it wasnt really that big of a deal. If you look over the features of the 3 they are pretty similar until you get to the 580. Power of flash being the main dif. The video light almost had me on the 320 but considering I always have a flashlight close by that blows the canon away it wasnt practical given the size considerations. I also considered my possible long term goals and realized if I ever bought a 2nd flash I would want a 580, so having the most compact and the most powerful would make the most since given all situations.3. Performance. I have read so much that says this is a glorified pop-up flash. It truly is not. So many times when I have tried to use the pop up I have been left with horrible results. So much so that I usually take video if its a moment I really want to preserve. In my initial testing the 270 lights a totally dark room (0 light) to a point that a pic is possible and usable. I dont know that it would win a contest, but it will be a useable pic. My concern with my walk around shoots is to get the best pic at that moment rather than the perfect pic possible period. I will never have a crew and 40 pound box of equipment, or a day to plan the perfect shot. I appreciate those that are good enough to make a living at it but thats not why I personally got into photography. This flash has already made me love flash and want a 2nd someday for various angles. The recharge rate seems good to me as I am used to taking more time to take a flash pic anyway. I really cant speak to the number of shoots from the batteries yet but I am and will be using the sanyos.4. Unless you know that you are going to take up serious photography then this flash is a no brainer. Even if you are, with its wireless feature it will make a great fill flash paired with a 580 or other setup. If you have a T3i or D60 that can already control it, even better! I am already planning a future upgrade from the T2i just for the wireless flash feature after having this flash for only 1 day. Its that much better and that much fun to use flash.5. If you do get the 270ex II I strongly suggest you get a snap-on difusser. I put mine on when I unpacked it and doubt I will ever take it off. Also if you do not have wireless sync, you might consider an off cam hot shoe cable. I have ordered one and not used yet, but some of the most interesting flash shoots I have read about use some way to get the flash exactly where you need it to be.Anyway, thats my 2cents, hope it helps someone. 5Small, Compact and User Friendly Flash I purchased the 270EX II for my Canon Rebel T5 because I could not stand the built in flash. The built in flash was weak and the fixed frontal position did not provide the proper lighting for my camera subjects. Now with the 270EX II, the stronger flash does provide a little more power along with the ability to bounce light by moving the flash to an upward position in three stages. The use of bouncing light has been extremely beneficial in making my subjects look more creamy and natural. I will admit that I have not yet gotten around to using the wireless flash settings, but the flash normally stays on my camera's hot shoe whether I use or not because I always want the option to switch it on if the opportunity demands it. I have been considering upgrading to the 430EX to have a more respected flash among photographers, but the 270EX II serves my needs better mainly because I enjoy the small size and it only requires two AA batteries instead of four (Not camera batteries). I would also recommend using high end Energizer rechargeable batteries with this flash (and flashes in general) because they juice battery power fairly quickly 5A great little flash unit!!! As the owner of a Canon SX50 IS, I didn't know if buying an external flash would be an excess, but using the pop-up flash a few times convinced me that I really needed something to bounce the flash and get rid of red eye, harsh skin tones and all the other woes of direct on-camera flashes. I cannot speak to its use with DSLRs, but for the SX50, it is perfect. It fits well and is "recognized" by the camera. Be sure you change the camera's menus setting to flash mode. Other than that, it is ready to go. The 270EX II also can be used as a slave, which is very handy. I am playing with an off-camera cable to get those side or downward flash experiences. A good diffuser is also recommended. Be aware there is no "test" button to fire it manually, but after attaching it to the camera, I found that a half-way shuttler press ("focus") gave me a test flash. That's a nice trick to know if you want to preview the shadows it might cause. Another great Canon flash. A good diffuser is also recommended. All in all for $150, this is a good, lightweight, very handy little flash. 5Used with Canon G15 - and it makes a huge improvement I was so confused on selecting the right model for the external flash, as well as confused as to wether I really needed one. Now that I use it on my G15, I can say that the colors with this external flash are warmer. The built in flash creates a lot of light, but it is a colder light (like cool white). This external flash is a warmer light, and it makes the photo's have a richer, deeper color. Also, there is absolutely no red-eye with this external flash.I love the size and weight, as I bought the G15 because I did not want a heavy nor large camera, and this flash helps to keep the weight and size at a respectable compact level. 5

That's a nice trick to know if you want to preview the shadows it might cause. Another great Canon flash. A good diffuser is also recommended. All in all for $150, this is a good, lightweight, very handy little flash. 5Used with Canon G15 - and it makes a huge improvement I was so confused on selecting the right model for the external flash, as well as confused as to wether I really needed one. Now that I use it on my G15, I can say that the colors with this external flash are warmer. The built in flash creates a lot of light, but it is a colder light (like cool white). This external flash is a warmer light, and it makes the photo's have a richer, deeper color. Also, there is absolutely no red-eye with this external flash.I love the size and weight, as I bought the G15 because I did not want a heavy nor large camera, and this flash helps to keep the weight and size at a respectable compact level. 5
