Top of the line Canon Flash for SLRs
Newly designed in terms of improved dust- and water-resistance, body strength, and the ability to control flash functions and settings from the camera menu (EOS-1D Mark III only). Other features include improved communication reliability through its direct contacts, and recycling time is both 20% shorter than the 580EX and is completely inaudible.

Great price - £50 cheaper than the next best

EDIT - Thanks to 'edgeone' for 'Dont forget TDX-24R8 for an extra £5 off and topcashback / quidco for 3%'

Interesting comment!

Like I'm really going to drag two Interfit Flash heads, stands and umbrellas around with me on holiday, 10,000 miles away to a forrest so that II can take a photo of a flower in less than adequate lighting!

In the same breathe. I would hardly use a Canon 580EX II unflitered without a soft box to take a portrait.

Might I suggest that you have a read of this http://www.amazon.co.uk/Complete-Photography-Essentials-Lifestyle-Paperback/dp/1592577520/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1269080614&sr=1-3

I'm very tempted! Must resist!
#13
Well done OP! H&R
#14
Use this voucher

TDX-GD55

Gives you £10 off instead. Brings it down to £269.98 before quidco!
#15
Sorry to sound stupid but what can this flash do that is so special. £280 is a lot of money for something that just flashes on top of a camera.

Before i start a back lash. I mean no disrespect just do not know why it is so expensive. What can it do that the 430ex cant?

directional and adjustable lighting - you can bounce light off walls for example rather than a flash pointing directly at the subject which gives an unnatural shot, not least more red eye and the subject if a person being blinded...agree they are expensive for what they are, same goes for the lens...but they wont get any cheaper so you just have to pay it
#19
thankssssssssssssssss
exactly what my brother in law was looking for
#20
Now OOS!
#21
yep just tried to order, had one in my basket but went to order and out of stock.

Thanks i have one already got it from kerso for about £229 then another £40-50 off with the canon cashback. I have used it for some portraits with good results and a few fashion shows along with the battery backpack canon make. Always shoot it on manual as i am not used to letting the camera or flash take control. Just checked out some of the results other photographers have made and think i will definitely start experimenting again. Just shocked how expensive it is. Like i say when i bought it it cost around £180-190 after cashback. Yes it is the exII but canons prices seem to have shot right up.

Get a D700 and you'll never need a flash.

:thinking: No. I'd suggest a clue for yourself, instead.

Two words: "Guide Rating" - Its a lot more powerful than the 430
I have the Mk1 version of this this flashgun, and can highly recommend it.

There's nothing wrong with the 430 - it's a damn good piece of kit.
You just need to decide whether you need the extra power, and therefore justify the extra expense.

If you have a Canon 7D, then you can use the EX580Mk2 and 7D together in wireless mode without the use of the Speedlite transmitter. I think the 7D can control up to 10 (?)

So... you don't actually "fully" understand what a flash is for, you just think you do :whistling:
#27
Must be pretty Flash for that kinda cash:whistling:
#28
It also has a strobe facility and can act as a master controlling slave flash guns
#29
you quoted this
the ability to control flash functions and settings from the camera menu (EOS-1D Mark III only)
it works on the 5dMKII aswell as thats what I use most probably work on others aswell as MKIII oldish now
