Canon Speedlite 270EX II Flash for Canon SLR Cameras – Review:


The 270 EX ii is essentially a 270 ex with one major addition: you can now use it as a slave. I had a 270 ex and while it is not very powerful it was a lot better than the on camera flash. I used it on my 60D to give me fill flash as needed. It was extremely limiting though because you couldn’t swivel the head to bounce light side to side and the lack of a slave function became apparent quickly. With the EX II, the slave function means that the side to side bounce isn’t as badly missed because you can just fire it as a slave and position as needed. It is really neat. Especially with the 60D’s integrated wireless controller.

In a nut shell, small, light, cheap, effective and with the slave function it allows creative flexibility. Perfect for when you need a flash on the go without the bulk.
