Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI flash

Verdict: While the 470EX-AI is certainly innovative, it's actually not all that intuitive for novice photographers to use and the printed manual requires a fair bit of studying to work out how to operate the flash's controls.

Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI review

Pros: Automatic bounce, Decent maximum output, Fast and silent recycling
Cons: Expensive to buy, No RF master/slave modes, No optical wireless master mode
Verdict: It doesn't take long to realise that bouncing the output of a flashgun off a ceiling or wall can effectively increase the size of the light source, therefore creating a softer, more natural looking lighting technique.

First-Look Review of the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI Flash

Verdict: Everyone has that one friend who claims to be a photographer, but doesn't know the first thing about the technical aspects of the craft. If your equipment of choice is an iPhone and pre-made filters, odds are you're not a professional photo artist.

A great flash overall

Verdict: I'm pleasantly surprised by this flash. It actually meets or even exceeds the promises made. Pretty fast in auto-finding the best angle and intensity if flash light. And there is always manual mode to override if you feel so.

Download The Owners Manual First

Verdict: Not all features appear to be available for certain cameras. Pages 46-47 of the owners manual is what you will want to look at. I have not been through the entire manual yet. The Speedlite works with my EOS 77D purchased in 2017.

Another great performer from CANON

Verdict: An excellent performer from Canon, you will always be on top with absolutely perfect exposure. I have two and take them on every shoot they are 100% reliable.
