Product Reviews
Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 12reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Simple to operate I bought another brand and was not happy. I thought I could save money but I purchased the Canon Speedlight 270 EX II and I could not be happier. This flash compliments my Canton SL 1 I recently purchased. August 13, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good little flash that doubles as a remote shutter I bought this to go on my EOS M a few years ago as opposed to the tiny 90 EX. I wanted something small but not that small. The head tilts up to bounce and manually zooms (pull it out) for telephoto. It can be used as a slave and remote shutter trigger too. Recycle time isn't too bad considering it uses two AA batteries. Generally faster than the built in flash. Very good build quality.For the size and price this is a pretty good flash but don't expect performance of a 580 EX II or 600 EX out of it. May 12, 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good flash This is a good flash for the money. I don't want to lug around my 580exii its small enough to fit into a bag but just powerful enough to shoot 6 to 8 feet across the roomIt will also aim up for bounce flash. But it you won't be sorry June 30, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Small, Compact and User Friendly Flash I purchased the 270EX II for my Canon Rebel T5 because I could not stand the built in flash. The built in flash was weak and the fixed frontal position did not provide the proper lighting for my camera subjects. Now with the 270EX II, the stronger flash does provide a little more power along with the ability to bounce light by moving the flash to an upward position in three stages. The use of bouncing light has been extremely beneficial in making my subjects look more creamy and natural. I will admit that I have not yet gotten around to using the wireless flash settings, but the flash normally stays on my camera's hot shoe whether I use or not because I always want the option to switch it on if the opportunity demands it. I have been considering upgrading to the 430EX to have a more respected flash among photographers, but the 270EX II serves my needs better mainly because I enjoy the small size and it only requires two AA batteries instead of four (Not camera batteries). I would also recommend using high end Energizer rechargeable batteries with this flash (and flashes in general) because they juice battery power fairly quickly December 30, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by LOVE THIS FLASH This flash is perfect for my needs. I have tried several flashes and this one worked like i had hoped! December 26, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Could be better Flash takes too long to warm up. With fresh batteries it takes abot 15 seconds for the red light to turn on. Too slow in my opinion. May 23, 2013
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not useful in slave mode. The Speedlite 270EX II does a fine job when used on-camera, but the slave feature is only marginally useful.Because having to aim the flash head toward the mastter (in my case, this is my Rebel T3i camera) in order for it to receive the signal emitted by camera's built-in flash, defeats the purpose of slave operation.Canon should have positioned the sensor on the 270EX IIin a more omnidirectional location in the Speedlite. January 31, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Ultimate portable flash I used this on a 5Dmkii while visiting South America - the 270EXii was greta for indoor family photos with bounce flash and great for fill-flash outdoors. Small, two batteries, exposures were excellent. October 4, 2012
