First Impressions, Canon 580 EXII


The other night I shot an assignment for the news. The sun was near setting, and the light was fading fast. It was a perfect opportunity to put my new flash to the test. It certainly did not let me down. I took 87 shots, including some in burst mode at 6.5 frames per second. Of the 87 frames, the flash fired 85 times. Talk about reliable performance...that is a 98% success rate! As I continue to put this unit to the test, I will post my findings here. So far, it seems like a real winner.
