Canon Speedlite 270EX II

The new Canon Speedlite 270EX II flash replaces the widely popular Canon Speedlite 270EX. As with all of Canon’s flashes, the Canon Speedlite 270EX II is compatible with all of Canon’s EOS bodies, as well as many of Canon’s Powershot cameras.

Design & Features

The Canon Speedlite 270EX II, being the smallest of Canon’s flashes, is rather popular with folks who own the Canon Powershots. This compact high power flash has a guide number of 27 (m/ISO 100) and fast, silent recycling between shots.

Folks who prefer to control the flash settings manually will be able to experiment with the manual bounce flash head for various effects and the zoom head for efficient light distribution across the scene. Bounce flash shooting is available with four position steps from 0 degrees to 90 degrees.

The new 270EX II comes with slave capability, allowing the flash to be triggered by a master unit such as a wireless transmitter or a pop-up flash of the newer camera bodies. Although it is not able to select a wireless group or channel like its higher end counterparts, its functions and features are most reasonable for flash of this class.

A brand new Remote Release function is added to the 270EX II, allowing photographers to trigger their camera remotely using their flash unit. This can be done from up to 16ft/5m away. This gives photographers the convenience of setting up and repositioning light without having to make repeated trips back to their camera.

Other features include the use of only two AA batteries and allows users to control flash functions and input settings using the camera’s LCD monitor, just like its predecessors. A quick-lock mechanism and a metal mounting foot for secure and easy attachment are also additional features found on the Canon Speedlite 270EX II.

Bottom Line

The Canon Speedlite 270EX II looks like it is laying claim to being the new compact and versatile lighting tool for photographers, delivering various lighting options and portability.
