Canon Speedlite 580EX: Compatible w/ all EOS cameras #21524
Canon's top-of-the-line Speedlite has been thoroughly revised. It's smaller and lighter than ever, yet provides a bit more power and significantly faster recycling. A new Select Dial makes changes, like exposure compensation, a breeze. It now covers lenses as wide as 14mm, and has new features for digital SLRs - including the ability to transmit precise flash color temperature information, and vary the zoom setting to match the imaging sensor.
- Approx. 25% faster recycling time compared to 550EX. - Superior evenness of exposure, center to corner of frame. - Slightly higher max. guide number at 105mm setting (GN 190, feet). - Auto conversion of flash coverage with compatible digital SLRs. - White Balance info communicated instantly to compatible digital SLRs. - Full swivel, 180° in either direction (first TTL flash with this ability). - AF-assist beam now compatible with all AF points on every EOS SLR. - New Select Dial for easy inputs and user control.
