    Bolt VS-260 reviews

    VS-260C Compact On-Camera Flash for Canon Cameras is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 18.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not sure what it is good for. 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from eat your heart out cannon! 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect For All My Canon Cameras 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.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pocketable flash. 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.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from compact flash with bounce head The flash is very compact and works well in ttl mode with Canon DSLRs. The flash head will tilt up to bounce flash off the ceiling. 8 second recycle between flashes.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from VS-260 Compact On-Camera Flash for Canon 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!!
