Best small flash for 1v

Discussion in 'Canon EOS' started by charles_benton|1, Jul 27, 2010.

  1. I'm looking for a shoe-mount flash for my 1v (yes, the film body). Bounce isn't necessary, I'm mostly looking for the smallest/lightest available direct flash. TTL is a plus but not critical. Needn't be Canon branded, just cant fry my hotshoe or anything. Thanks for your help.
     
  2. Speedlite 270EX ;)
     
  3. you need bounce or cord to remove flash from hot shoe, trust me on that.

    I don't know whether the shoe voltage is safe.
    I agree with WT, BTW. If you can go with larger and want to bounce, I believe the Vivitar 285hv flashes of recent manufacture use safe voltages. An even better option is to trigger the Vivitar off-shoe with an el-cheapo, Ebay-type, Chinese radio slave. The transmitter that mounts on the shoe is really quite tiny.
     
  5. I would agree with Andy; the 270EX is small, fairly meaty, and has bounce as a bonus.
     
  6. I have a Speedlight 200E, but I also have a Nikon SB-15 than I use with my 1v. It isn't a whole lot bigger than the 200E, and has full manual controls and bounce. I have two that I've found for less than $10 each.
     
  7. Sunpak RD200. Even has E-TTL and bounce. Foot folds into the flash, so in your pocket it's smaller than a packet of cigarettes.
    I use it occasionally on an EOS 30.
