The Canon Speedlite 270EX II Essential Kit from B&H contains the versatile and compact shoe mount flash along with a bounce dome diffuser, four AA NiMH rechargeable batteries, and a rapid battery charger. The bounce dome diffuser helps to soften and more evenly spread the light output from the flash while the batteries and charger ensure a consistent and available power source.
The Speedlite 270EX II features a selectable wide/tele head position and provides a guide number of 72.2' at ISO 100 at the wide position or 88.6' at ISO at the tele position. A 90° tilting head design aids in greater control over the direction of the flash output and, when used in conjunction with EOS DSLRs with a master function, a built-in slave function allows the flash to be triggered wirelessly. It supports Canon's E-TTL II system for fast and accurate flash metering and can cover EF lenses with focal lengths as wide as 28mm with the wide position.

Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX (original ver.) Speedlight
The Vello Bounce Dome (Diffuser) for Canon 270EX (original ver.) Speedlight will diffuse the light output of the flash, producing softer shadows and a softer, more natural glow rather than the harsher effect when using a direct flash. The diffuser provides even coverage across the entire frame.
The lightweight, compact Bounce Dome simply slides onto and off the flash with custom fitting, without the need for touch fastener tabs.
Soft, even, diffused light from your shoe-mount flash
