There are several nit-picks that I have (and are listed below). There is one overwhelming positive that puts this into a strong, good rating.
What I like:
In a nutshell, fast and accurate E-TTL operation. With macro work, you're working with enough other technical aspects that having one less thing to worry about was welcome. I'm comfortable working with manual flash settings and do so frequently with portraits. With some macro subjects, everything is static, with no time pressure. In those cases, I was (already) using a pair of 580's on stands. But for organic subjects, your hands are full. Having the option for E-TTL was a welcome change. For my tastes, the exposure was a bit "hot" (see below).
What I wasn't thrilled about:
The unit is very plastic-y feeling. All of my other flashes are Canon brand and quite simply feel a whole lot differently. This one feels ... "cheap". The control unit (in the hotshoe) is definitely in this "cheap" feel category. The coiled cord to the flash head is fine. It's solid and heavy. The head (that mounts to the lens) is ... okay. On the plus side, having something that's lightweight at the end of the lens is more convenient just for the weight savings.Read more ›
it shoots radomly.
Never worked when I use it in any mode.
Waste of money

I read the reviews and almost did not buy this. I read the instructions and have learned more about my Canons TTL than I have in 6 years of using my XSi and T3i. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Gary G Nichols
