Canon Speedlite Flash

Published by at 11:16 pm under General

The newest Canon Speedlite Flash EX series use E-TTL II (through the lens) technology. These are flash metering systems that use a preflash and a metering system to determine optimum flash exposure.

Basically they work by determining the flash exposure through using the centre 17 metering zones along with ambient light metering. Zones which differ greatly in brightness are given less weight as they are likely to be small reflective objects.

The E-TTL II flash algorithm is incorporated into all Canons EOS digital SLRs. The system is designed to work in scenes that would confuse conventional metering systems (such as the brides white dress) to provide accurate flash exposures.

There are different types of Canon Speedlite Flash for different types of photography. You can get a speedlite especially designed for macro photography with a close up flash, either with a ring light or two separate flash units that are further apart and are fully adjustable.
