Does the flash from your camera wash out the faces of your subjects? Want to make your photos look more professional? An external flash will add a whole new level of professionalism to your photos. The Canon Speedlite 580EX II is one of the best flashes on the market for SLR cameras. I am quite surprised that Canon decided to update the 580EX so soon but the improvements are vast. It has 20% faster recycling time than its predecessor. This flash is great for people who take a lot of portrait and event photographs. This latest release improves dust and water-resistance, body strength, and the ability to control flash functions and settings from the camera menu. It has a 20 per cent faster recovery time compared to the previous version. The quality of material in building it has definitely improved, just by looking at this flash, you can tell that it is made of higher quality material. It has a Max Guide No. 58 at 105mm setting and is excellent in auto conversation of flash coverage with other compatible digital SLR cameras. It gives instant information about the white balance to the digital SLR camera which is quite useful for photography. This works great with the Canon SLR range including the 7D, 5D mark ii and the rebel line.

I really like the exposure that this flash is gives to photos too. The photos are neither over exposed nor under exposed. I am also glad that there is no audible sound during the recharge phase like other camera flashes. I definitely like the quiet charging method; this quiet charging is due to some ultrasonic frequency charging that Canon has started using. Canon Speedlite 580EX Flash has a much more rounded design which looks great. It is also lighter than the previous version and that makes a lot of difference at the end of the day if you shoot lots of photos, the weight reduction is a welcome relief for the hands.There is also an awesome new quick release mount that allows you to very easily mount and release the flash from the hot shoe. This is really important for 'run and gun' type shoots. Another great aspect is the battery life. The battery life is outstanding on this flash, you certainly won't be spending as much on batteries as with other flashes.

If you're looking for an excellent upgrade or a very impressive first flash for your SLR camera, you won't be disappointed with the Canon Speedlite 580EX II.
