SPEEDLITE 270EX

 

Canon adds the compact Speedlite 270EX to the flash range

 

 

Key Features include:

• High power flash with a maximum guide number 27 (metres, ISO 100)

• Fast, silent recycle times

• Manual flash output (settable via camera menus)

• Speedlite controllable with compatible camera's menu

• Zoom head

• Bounce flash head

 

 

Canon has introduced the entry level Speedlite 270EX, an enhanced flash designed for EOS and PowerShot users. Replacing the popular Speedlite 220EX, the Speedlite 270EX is aimed at photographers wanting to expand their flash photography beyond the built-in flash and those who want a small, pocketable flash unit to complement their EOS-1D or EOS 5D series cameras.

 

The compact Speedlite 270EX builds on the success of its predecessor, with more power than usual for its class and size. 

It includes a host of new features not available with a built-in flash and pushes the boundaries for the entry level flash market. These include the addition of a zoom head, ensuring efficient light distribution, and a bounce flash head, enabling light from the flash to bounce off a ceiling to produce pictures with more flattering lighting with softer tones and depth.

 

Improved circuitry offers near silent recharging and enables similar recharging times as its predecessor, despite being powered by just 2 AA batteries. 

 

Pricing and availability

 

The Speedlite 270EX is available from early May 2009 priced at 149.99 (€169.99) RRP inc. VAT.
