Can someone kindly sum up the most important differences between the 430EX and the 270EX Speedlites?
I'd like to move up to something better than the on-board flash for my T2i, but I'm having trouble evaluating if the extra features are worth the extra cost (to me).
Reading the specifications, the 270EX has a faster cycle time, but a lot less "flexibility" (it can only bounce flash in a few preset angles) and has about half the range.
Can someone explain the purpose/use of a bounce/swivel/zoom head of the 430EX and whether it make a big difference over the more limited 270EX?
Both get equally high reviews on B&H....
