Help me decide: 270EXII vs 90EX

<< < (4/4)

jondave:
If portability is a must then get the 270ex ii.

You'd be nuts to buy a 90ex -too weak, and optical/IR is a no-go. Line of sight trigerring is totally unreliable. Get RF triggers.

Thanks for the info power and line of sight triggering.  This makes the decision easier

SJTstudios:
Sorry again, in final, get the 270"ex ii, it is ok on camera for what you'll be using it for rather than the 430. If you really wan to attempt off camera, get some yongnuo rf603 or cactus v5 triggers

Rampuri:
A little old, but still great topic. I was considering buying one of these flashes a week ago and this topic quite helped. I was also looking for something small and light so I could carry it with me on trips and hikes all day long. In this case I don't need the power of Speedlite 430 or 580 / 600 EX, but portability is what really counts.

I decided to buy 270EX II and I feel it was the right decision. It's even smaller than I thought - really compact - and the tiltable head is very useful for indoor shooting.
