Canon launch entry level Speedlite 270EX - Canon refreshes Flash range with the compact Speedlite 270EX.
The Speedlite 270EX includes a host of new features not available with a built-in flash that push the boundaries for the entry level flash market. These include the addition of a zoom head, ensuring efficient light distribution and 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.
Key Features include:
High power flash with a maximum guide number 27 m
Fast, silent recycle times
Manual flash output (settable via camera menus)
Speedlite controllable with compatible camera's menu
Bounce flash head
