SPEEDLITE 480EG

Dates back to pre-EOS days. Gives choice of TTL or external sensor metering with EOS cameras. Attaches to the camera via a bracket rather than the hot-shoe. Guide number of 48 (ISO 100m). Supplied with wide and tele panels to alter coverage. Worth considering if you want a flash gun for EOS and non-EOS models.
