4 out of 5 eggsGreat starter flash

Pros: Great flash, compact size. Good feature set for price. Responsive and adjustable. Better than camera pop up flash by far (great for beginners, budget minded)

Cons: Adjustment could be better (limited, but adequate for beginners). In small rooms, can be more flash than you need...bounce is better option if you can.

Other Thoughts: Use good batteries and you'll be happy with flash charge time and responsiveness. Flash gets sluggish with low batteries, so have extras handy.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice, typical canon quality

Pros: Price. For the cost of this flash, it has features that should cost over 200$. I plan on upgrading to the 480 unit this year, but even though I've only had this flash for my 7D for a few months, its a great unit. Small enough to fit in the camera bag, yet the flash head is big enough to throw light where I need it.

Cons: No settings dial on the flash. But, I knew this already and for the money, it probably would be more expensive if it did.

Other Thoughts: There are situations where this flash is better than a 480 or above. Mainly if you dont need the big huge units, this one has a much lower profile and wont get in the way. The larger series canon flashes will throw more light, but this one works well for most situations.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Flash

Pros: Small, compact, easy to use, flash refresh rate for flash very fast not even full second. Only requires 2 AA batteries, I am using rechargable Energizers and wow. Great bounce feature.

Cons: None so far

Other Thoughts: Only owned this for few hours now since delivery and I have already started messing with it, and let me say its amazing. I am a really new guy into DSLR and this flash has removed the hassle of the manual mode blur when object move. I would recommend this to anyone thats beginning. Cant go wrong, and NEWEGG.COM is amazing with fast shipping, cheap prices and just overall availability of products I need.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect match so far

Pros: I bought this as the main flash for my Canon 5D, and I am impressed so far. I can't throw out any numbers of settings or stats (I'm new to the digital SLR game) but being able to swivel it up for bounce shots has worked nicely, which is why I bought this. Also high speed sync shots work surprisingly well. Overall I am satisfied ;)

Cons: Hopefully none ever!

Other Thoughts: Canon EOS 5D
Canon EF 24-70mm lens
Speedlight 270EX :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat little flash

Pros: Small light weight alittle over 5 oz. ....Ideal for Canon DSLR cameras that don't have an on board flash Ex. 5D ,5DMKII G9 G10........ Holds two AA batteries ,not included...The flash head does not swivel left or right ,but can be aimed up for bounce flash...Also this flash can shoot high speed sync.. ( outdoor fill,over 1/250 sec. )example F-8 1/1000 sec ,ideal for flash fill in bright sunlight...

Cons: This flash does not have infra red capabilities like the high end Canon flashes. ( wireless flash control and trigger)....

Other Thoughts: I have the Canon 5D and the 5DMKII and the Canon 580EX II flash.
