I'm interested in getting a small, compact flash for my 5DIII for when I'm traveling or want to keep my kit as light as possible. Unfortunately, searching "compact flash" doesn't give many relevant results.
What I want from this unit is mainly for direct fill flash in portraiture, including as fill flash with the sun in the frame behind the subject.
I've come across a few different choices, the 270EX II (and its predecessors), the Metz 24 af-1, the Sunpak d2000 (I think?).
I have several questions:
Does anyone have any experience with this sort of small flash?
I already have a 430EX II which isn't the largest flash around, is the weight/size difference worth buying an extra flash for?
Are there any other alternatives that I haven't noticed, or is the 270EX II being updated anytime soon?
Is the 90EX worth looking at (lack of tilt head, low power, AAA batteries, but 24mm coverage)?
Any advice/comments/suggestions in general?
