This newest Canon Speedlite (with a GN of 72 at the 28mm zoom setting) is small enough at five ounces to fit in a pocket, and, instead of zooming, uses two fixed coverage levels for 28mm and 50mm focal length lenses. It offers bounce-lighting capabilities, and uses two AA batteries, which provide enough power to recycle the unit in four seconds between flashes. Like its "big brothers," the 270X communicates white balance information to the camera and includes a built-in AF assist beam.
