Great upgrade from basic DSLR flash! Posted by: from: Peoria, IL on This unit is an good upgrade from the basic flash included on most DSLRs. However it may leave you wanting a better flash when you see what some of the very nice units out there can do for only $100 more. It includes nice features such as being able to use bounce flash (limited to only vertical 45, 60, or 75 degrees) and act as a wireless remote. It can also be used to provide wireless flash as a slave unit. Overall if you are an amateur photographer with a Cannon DSLR and just want a little nicer flash than the camera has built in, this flash is perfect for you. But if you need to use more advanced features such as horizontal bounce flash, and IR focus adjustment, then I recommend moving one step up to the Cannon SpeedLite 430 EX II.

It works great for my PowerShot G-12 Posted by: from: Acton, CA on I wanted a compact external flash for my Powershot G-12. I recently took some photos of my grandkids and the results were great. The system is compact, has the features I need, and I get great photos

Improved my photos Posted by: from: on I purchased this external flash because the one on my Canon wouldn't pop up as usual. After consulting the manual, I decided to try this basic external flash. Wish I had done it 3 years ago--what a difference, even with this basic (lowest level model) flash attachment. Easy to use.

Works well with Canon EOS 6D Posted by: from: on I bought this for my Canon EOS 6D. I have used it in the shoe with good results. It also can be used remotely with some model cameras and has an adapter to mount it on a tripod. I haven't tried that function, so I can't say if it works with the EOS 6D. This is the least expensive flash for the EOS D6 that Canon makes, so you could go high-end, but this works good for me.

Great for Real Estate pictures Posted by: from: on I wasn't sure what I needed, but I wanted a camera and lens for taking professional looking Real Estate pictures and easy to use. We had several associates helping us and they were wonderful and very knowledgable.

Compact Flash with Power Posted by: from: Appleton on I bought this flash for my new Canon G15 series camera. Since the camera is not as large as SLR cameras, it is a perfect size for this camera and other smaller cameras and fits very easily on the top of my camera. It also only takes 2 "AA" batteries which is much nicer that a previous one I had which was bulky on top of the camera and took 4 batteries. It has enough power to compensate for the lack of light from 10 ft. to at least 30 or 40 ft. away. My only gripe about it is the inability to adjust it in small increments upward. It only has 2 adjustments upward, one being ceiling bounce mode. But unless you're expecting to do some serious photography (even though I'm pretty picky myself), it meets all the expectations of a smaller fill flash at a good price.

superb indoor flash for hobbyist Posted by: from: on Lots of features to keep a hobbyist happy for a long time. slave flash works good, but needs to be in LOS of the camera front (non-radio, IR only). Good flash, nice Telescope feature to get distance out of a compact fash, and the head rotates vertically for ceiling bounce. compact design is easy to store.
