Canon Speedlite 270EX II flash unit : Canon announces the launch of the new Speedlite 270EX II - a new addition to its leading EX Speedlite range. Designed for EOS Digital SLR (DSLR) owners who want to use creative lighting techniques to make their photography more engaging, the new Canon Speedlite 270EX II flash is ideal for experimenting with different lighting set-ups with off-camera support, allowing users to alter subject lighting and add ambiance to a scene. Ideal for users of the newly-launched Canon EOS 600D and Canon EOS 1100D DSLRs, the Canon Speedlite 270EX II replaces the Speedlite 270EX at the entry level of Canon’s Speedlite range. |
Canon Speedlite 270EX II flash compatibility
The new Canon Speedlite flash unit is compatible with Canon’s distance-linked E-TTL II system, and can be used on-camera or as slave units controlled by a separate master unit or the Integrated Speedlite Transmitter of the Canon EOS 600D, EOS 60D and EOS 7D. Ideal for more creative home studio shooting or general use, the new Speedlite 270EX II adds a new dimension to portraits or still life shots.
Canon Speedlite 270 EX II compact flash unit
Perfect for users who want a small, pocketable flash unit, the Canon Speedlite 270EX II is a compact, high-power flash with a guide number of 27 (m/ISO 100) and fast, silent recycling between shots. Flash settings can be manually controlled through the camera menu system, and photographers can experiment with the manual bounce flash head for different effects, as well as the zoom head to ensure efficient light distribution across the scene.
Canon Speedlite 270EX II flash functions
Providing the freedom for photographers to light a scene in a range of different ways, the Canon Speedlite 270EX II launches with additional slave capability, allowing for creative, off-camera use. A new Remote Release function also wirelessly triggers the shutter release on a compatible EOS DSLR, allowing users to set up lighting without having to make repeat trips to the camera. Photographers can frame their shot, wirelessly trigger the two-second shutter release timer on the camera body, and then reposition the flash anywhere in the scene - capturing the image as the camera then fires both the flash and shutter release.
