SPEEDLIGHT, (CANON) 220EX, E-TTL For
Featuring a recycle time of 0.1 to 4.5 seconds, the Canon Speedlite 220EX is a fully automatic flash, compatible with all Canon EOS cameras. The 220EX can also utilize E-TTL operation when paired with the Canon EOS IX, EOS ELAN II/IIE, and EOS Rebel G. Sporting a save-energy feature, whereby the flash is shut down after 90 seconds of idle, the 220EX is powered by four AA batteries, and has a flash capacity between 250 and 1,700. The convenience and ease of use ensure the 220EX a place in the hands of amateur photographers who want a high-quality flash, but aren't interested in learning to use the professional features of Canon's other offerings.

Conclusion #1: The G6 has a good builtin flash. It makes good images within it's limited range of 5 meters/16 feet (or 4 meters/13 feet when the lens is set to telephoto) and works well as a fill flash. Complete failure beyond 20 feet.
Conclusion #2: The 420EX (range 24.2 meters) and the 220EX (range 15.7 meters/51.5 feet) both make better images than the builtin flash and both offer longer range. But both are limited by the autofocus range of 5 to 7 meters. That's right, neither flash can focus on a subject more than 20 feet away in darkness with the lens set to telephoto. Both worked fine when the lens was set to wide angle at 40 feet.
Final Conclusion: I'm keeping the 220 EX. The G6 is small and light, so is the 220EX. They make a good team, but the G6 also does well alone up close.
It seems to be a little less harsh than the popup flash on my Rebel XT. it also claims to be a little more powerful than the popup flash. Finally, I have lens hoods on a few of my lenses. Thus, the popup flash often creates a "shadow". This flash takes care of that problem.
If you fall somewhere between being a clueless photographer who has no idea what this flash might do for you, but are short of an overeager hobbyist who might want to fiddle around with more advanced features, then this is a good flash.
It does not swivel or tilt, but I don't care about that. I mainly wanted a little more power than my popup/builtin flash and I wanted to get above my lens hoods to prevent shadowing. This flash works for me.
I give it 4 stars b/c there seems to be a notable reduction in light output if you take rapid fire shots.
