This flash features E-TTL pre-stored evaluative automatic flash exposure control; FE Lock and FP flash when used with Canon's Elan II/IIE, Rebel G, or EOS IX cameras; and TTL auto flash metering with EOS cameras other than the Elan II/IIE, Rebel G, or EOS IX. Flash synchronization speeds in normal operation vary according to camera exposure mode with normal maximum speed of 1/125 second. Using Elan II cameras with the Speedlite 380EX set to FP mode, the high-speed flash synchronization mode varies from 1/180 to 1/4000 seconds. High-speed synchronization is possible in the camera's creative modes of shutter-priority, aperture-priority, intelligent program, and manual. Flash synchronization is for front curtain. Second curtain synchronization is possible with Elan II/IIE cameras via a setting on the camera.

There's not a whole lot to say in a review about a flash. There are better flashes for more money and flashes with less features for less money. I bought this flash to replace the onboard flash of my Elan IIE. It greatly outperforms the flash on the camera body. Also, if you use larger diameter lenses like the Canon 28-135mm, the flash on the camera body is slightly obscured by the lens itself. The 380EX is an ideal mid level flash for the Canon EOS system. If you're trying to learn more about flash photography and want to experiment, you can't do much because it's totally automatic. The higher level model (420EX, 550EX) offer many for features for a price.
Thanks for your time...
Update: Found it best fit if used as fill flash.
