How about someone design a swiveling hotshoe mount adapter?


Taking photos with a fancy camera does not make me a photographer.

I've seen cold shoe swivels, just not a hot shoe swivel yet.

Or less depending on your perspective... A bounce and/or swivel flash head can be set to manage itself once the angle has been calibrated. An off shoe cord needs further assistance to achieve that. Manning a flash with one hand and a camera with the other is a step backwards in that equation as the adjustable flash head keeps both hands for camera use (without requiring a stand, etc.).

Sorry to bump the old thread... but I found this flash really amazing for the price... and I will be most likely getting it!!

for 159, I think it is an awesome steal and an awesome competitor to the ever-so-rising-in-prices ebay flashes

Yeah and it looks like it is in stock too. Ordered one just a few minutes ago. I'll probably end up using it exclusively with the G9, but it might also be handy to use with the 5DII.

I ordered one too. It's en route. Will prolly use it with the G10 and with the 5D-II for travel.

I got the flash at JR Yesterday.
Actually if you read the posts earlier that I posted, if you live in NYC,
you can get 15.00 off with a coupon over 150.00.

The Flash is very compact.
Im using 2 nimh rechargable duracell batt.
at 1/1 maximum flash output at 90 Degrees, the light output is very good.
Its very easy to adjust 60, 75, 90 degrees.

I was thinking of purchasing a sun-pak flash before this that i can carry around everywhere, and im glad i waited for the 270ex.

Ok. Mine just arrived. It is indeed very compact. This will make a good "pop-up flash" for the 5D/1D series or a good flash for the S and G series P&S cameras with a hot-shoe.

On the 5D in low light, since it doesn't have the IR auto-focus assist beam, it acts like the pop-up flashes do on other EOS cameras. If you aren't familiar with that, it is a burst of flashes, about 10 or 15 in a second. On the G9, it used the camera's auto-focus assist (the green light). This really isn't any different than how any other Canon EX Speedlite acts though. But I'll admit, I haven't even tried to figure out if the G9 can use the AF Assist beam of an EX Speedlite.

Here's a couple of pictures of it mounted to a G9.

And one of it mounted to a 5D Mark II
