Just got a 270EX II, mainly because its small and will be a nice compact flash for my kit bag, to be used on my 50D and my little PowerShots
Im the kind of person that like to bounce the flash, I use 430 and 580 as my main flash units.
The 270 is doing some strange stuff, first picture I took with it was perfect then the next 5 or so the image was dark.
The flash is firing but a very weak amount, its not the re cycle time I'm giving it a good 5-6 seconds between pics.
No matter what setting apart from setting on the camera the flash to be in manual not auto mode. Its not always going off at what I would say should be normal full power.
But what strange is I can have on tripod so the scene is not moving and 3 out of the 10 are not dark.
Even if I fire into a almost dark room, the 430 would fire overtime the 270 only fire once or twice in a 20 images sequence.
Wondering if this thing is faulty, all the review seems so good.
Its the same on my 50D 5D or PowerShot cameras.
