This exciting addition to the Canon EOS System combines compact size and affordability. Improving on the previous model, Speedlite 420EX can now be set into manual flash mode (full power ~ 1/64). Flash compensation can be set on the flash unit, and manual control of the flash zoom head is now possible. Refinements in its circuitry make recycle time 20% faster.

Excellent for indoor shots under low lighting

This was my first time using external flash. It works amazing allowing you get high quality natural looking clear shots under low lighting. I think its excellent for indoor use as you can bounce the light from walls and ceiling. The quality of the unit is ok, I was expecting a more robust built, however, given the price and excellent performance I would rate it a 5.

A bargain when on sale.

100% compatible with my T5i. Quality workmanship. Good documentation and lots of information online. My YN-560 flash has been relegated to off-camera field work only.

Excellent performance

Perfect for my camera, i used it on New years eve. i can see the big diffirence between biuld-in flash and external flash. i'm satisfied with the performance and the price is affordable. i would recommend this product.

Great for beginners..

this is my first time to use a flash, i have not read the whole instructions, i do not have that much knowledge but i found my initial shots are better than using my built in flash....

Great Flash

The refresh rate on this unit is awesome ( instant when use in automatic mode ). Can be oriented in any direction to bounce light, or used remotely with wireless. Sure beats using the built-in flash. Someone with big fingers may find the buttons hard to press.The only reason I give it 4 stars, and not 5 is because this unit can only be used as a slave, and not master ( Requires the purchase of a more expensive unit) .
