I just upgrade to 6D, only things i miss is the built in flash. I have a 430EX, but too bulky to always take along with me. What the best speedlite to subtiute the buitl in flash and the size is small and light ? I alr searching the internet, the 270ex look nice, post here to get some other suggestion.

There's a built in flash on the 6D? Or do you mean the 60D?

Honestly, for a camera like that, the 430 is a very good flash. There are a bunch of 3rd party flashes, but any comparable flash is going to be about the same size. You can get smaller flashes, but you'll lose a lot of the functionality. No bounce, for example. My recommendation is to stick with the 430.

Sorry for my bad enlish. I mean i had built in flash from my DSLR(T3)before, but now with 6d cant always bring along 430ex. When go travel, hiking, camping the weight of 430ex and extra battery is problem and the extra room of the bag. I need another flash that smaller than 430ex for fill in flash if i need to.

considering the high ISO quality of the 6D, i'm wondering if a small LED light might work.
