    Default Got Flashed this afternoon....

    Well finally cracked and gave in to the need to get a flash for my camera.

    Canon offered me a £35 cashback on a 580EX, so got a reasonable deal from Amazon today and got this one ... Bl00dy thing is massive !!

    EDIT: I dont know all the technical details, but I think this can give you a suntan from 58 meters away...

    I've got one of these too, it's are the dogs danglies of flashguns for the Canon, my mate bought it & wasn't using it so I bought it off him at knockdown price (I've also got a 420ex & a MR-14ex for my off camera lighting ). If you think it's big on an SLR try using it on a compact camera, makes it a little top heavy
