Canon announces new Speedlite flash

Canon announced today the addition of a new flash to their lineup, the Speedlite 270EX. The 270EX is a small, light flash unit that runs on two AA batteries. Canon boasts several features for the 270EX: a quick, 4 sec. recycle time, a flash head that can bounce up to 90 degrees, their quick-lock mechanism, and a metal mounting foot to name a few.

The 270EX is meant to replace the 220EX which sold for under $150.00. Although certainly less powerful and feature-packed then their 430EX and 580EX lines, the 270EX could be a relatively low-cost second or back-up flash for your field kit.
