Canon 470EX-AI overview

  • 1Description

Helping to reduce the intimidation of flash photography, the Speedlite 470EX-AI from Canon is a unique on-camera light featuring Auto Intelligent Bounce technology. This function measures the room you are working in, along with the set focus distance, in order to automatically tilt and rotate the flash head to produce even, diffuse, and clean bounce flash results. This function can be used in full-auto mode, where the flash automatically determines all settings, or in semi-auto mode, where you can set the angle of the flash and it will automatically rotate depending on the specific camera position or orientation in use.

Beyond its distinct automated capabilities, the 470EX-AI is also distinguished by its apt flash specs, including E-TTL/E-TTL II compatibility, a guide number of 154' at ISO 100 and 105mm, a zoom head with coverage from 24-105mm, and a pull-out diffuser to widen this coverage to 14mm. Manual stepless adjustment over bounce is possible with a tilting range up to 120° along with +/- 180° rotation, and off-camera triggering is possible using the optical slave mode.

By automatically taking measurements of the room in conjunction with the set focus distance, Auto Intelligent Bounce (AI.B) automatically tilts and rotates the flash head in order to bounce the light and produce a diffuse and even quality of light
AI.B full-auto mode automatically adjusts the flash angle and rotation by measuring the distance to the closest wall or ceiling along with the subject distance. AI.B semi-auto mode allows you to set the bounce angle yourself and then will automatically rotate the flash head as the camera is moved or the shooting orientation is changed
Guide number of 154' at 105mm and ISO 100
Flash head offers 0 to 120° of tilt along with +/-180° of rotation for full bounce flash capabilities
Zoom head range of 24-105mm and a wide panel can be slid into place for coverage up to 14mm
Exposure compensation of ±3 EV in 1/3 or 1/2 step increments
Optical receiver mode for off-camera triggering
LCD panel on rear for viewing and changing settings
AF assist beam benefits focusing performance in low light
Accepts four AA batteries as its power source
Metal locking foot

    Canon 470EX-AI reviews

    Speedlite 470EX-AI is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 15.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from like having a robot working for you on top of your camera I absolutely love the new Speedlite AI.  I admit that I was skeptical and a bit scared of the idea of letting a flash move around on top of my camera [on its own].  I was also worried that it was just hype and fluff.  It turns out that with a small learning curve, I was shooting portraits with phenomenal bounce.  It looked like I was using a studio light on more than one occasion.  Plus my clients thought it was cool and that takes my professional appearance up a bit. So be sure you watch the Canon produced videos on how to use it correctly.  I watched them a few times after trying out the flash at home.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Speedlite for Indoors In the initial testing that I have done in auto mode, this Speedlite performs very well and quickly in rooms with white or light colored ceilings up to 10'. In manual mode, it compares to the 430EX and close the 600EX's I have. I purchased this specifically for wedding dances as to have something that would provide fast and accurate results with bounce flash. So far, so good, I have not found the need to second guess the auto mode. More testing to follow and I will revise this review as necessary.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from An answer for indoor flash photography I end up taking a lot of indoor photos. I am not a professional, so I need all the help I can get. The automatic bounce flash technology in the 470 is like magic - especially if you're in a room with a white ceiling (which most are). There are a few moving parts (gears, motors, etc.) and for this reason I opted to get the Canon Care Plan. The only negative is the weight of the flash. But I knew that before purchasing so its acceptable.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good for a beginner..but not really. I admit i loved the idea on paper but once i received�it and used it for a few days I found it kind of worthless.� It works but is a little slow but if you have no idea and you can only take one shot...then sure.� The cool factor lasts for about 10 minutes and when you wait for it to move and shoot some flashes in each direction it gets old.� I get it and i see why but after a while i ask why pay more for this?

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and really good products. sometimes make mistakes, but this product compensates for that. I recommend

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT Flash! I have been shooting for 30 years but always outdoor scenery. When it came to my kids, Hockey & soccer action shots, no flash allowed. Now my daughter is getting married and I was nervous. I got great shots thanks Canon. Thanks to B&H for shipping to Canada. It was N/A when I needed it in Toronto.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best flash ever. It makes you an instant Pro. No guessing how to bounce the flash. In your face Nikon.
    Date published: 2018-05-14
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works As Advertised! I am new to Flash Photography and this was a great way to learn how to bounce light properly. Super easy to set up and use. Get rechargeable batteries, otherwise you'll be spending lots on regular batteries.
