The-Digital-Picture.com har anmeldt Canon Speedlite 270EX, den mindste blitz i Canon’s program af Speedlite blitze. Er blevet et yderst populært alternativ til den indbyggede blitz, grundet den lille størrelse, lave pris og gode ydeevne.

The Canon Speedlite 270EX Flash replaces the Canon Speedlite 220EX Flash and assumes the small/light/inexpensive position in Canon’s flash lineup.
Like the rest of the “EX” series Speedlites, the Canon Speedlite 270EX Flash is compatible with all EOS camera bodies and many Canon Powershot point and shoot cameras. The small size and low weight of this flash make it especially attractive to the latter.
The Canon Speedlite 270EX Flash’s biggest enhancement over the 220EX, by far, in my opinion, is the bounce-capable head demonstrated above. While the adjustment range is very limited (no swivel, 90° tilt), any bounce capability is a big improvement over the fixed position 220EX head. A new 2-position manual zoom option allows the 270EX to concentrate its light on the framed subject – making more efficient use its power and extending its useful distance.
Several features seen first in Canon’s other “EX II” flashes are inherited by the 270EX. These include the ability to control flash settings from a compatible camera’s menu (including manual flash mode settings), the communication of color temperature information with a compatible camera (for optimal white balance) and silent charging.
