        Comments about Bolt VS-260 Compact On-Camera Flash for Canon TTL:

        Does exactly what a small pocketable flash should do. I use it on my Canon G15 when shooting indoors and low light. More power than the built and the the adjustable flash head allows for bouncing to reduce harsh shadows.

        Comments about Bolt VS-260 Compact On-Camera Flash for Canon TTL:

        I bought this flash to use for indoor photos. I haven't used it frequently, but the thing I like most about it is that I can adjust the angle of the flash (e.g., I can point it up towards the ceiling). The primary downside to this flash is it feels flimsy. Specifically, the connection to the camera and the rotation point of the flash. I haven't had any issues, but if I were using this flash frequently or moving around a lot with it, I would be concerned.

            Comments about Bolt VS-260 Compact On-Camera Flash for Canon TTL:

            I originally bought this guy for use on my Canon Powershot IS/SX-30, it being my smallest Canon camera with a hot shoe. But I now use it on my bigger Canons when I want to go light (pun intended" and do not need to light up a very large area. It is a terrific buy.

                Why pay for the more expensive one when you have this flash that works so perfectly with my Canon G16 Camera. This is all you need and the results are phenomenal!!

                This is the most amazing, low cost flash in the world. it has a low light focus beam, which the cannon 270ex11 does not have. The power is great. Also it couples with the camera, in TTL perfectly. great to leave on camera at all times. Get one for every camera you have...And cameras you are thinking about getting in the future. Only down side, the lock could have been better. But at this price buy 2 or 3.

                    Comments about Bolt VS-260 Compact On-Camera Flash for Canon TTL:

                    My plan was to use the flash with a Canon G-12 that I use to document appraisals. The thought was that I could through manual settings on the camera increase the depth of field of my photos with the additional light from the flash without having to resort to a high ASA. Unfortunately the flash on any setting other than "P" (auto exposure) would only fire full blast, and when on "P" the camera would default to a large aperture. I returned the unit. Additionally, the construction felt flimsy.
