Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
I was a little skeptical, but I took a punt and it paid off! * E-TTL - Will talk to your Canon DSLR like a regular speedlite. * Can be used as a master or stand-alone slave. The second slave mode will even ignore some of the preflashes from the fill flash on the camera. * 360° rotatable head, 90° tilt. * Wide diffuser and bounce card. * Moderately quick recycle time * Comes with soft case and stand * Full auto or manual settings * LCD backlight
Cons:
* Part of the manual is in Engrish, part speaks about another flash (this one doesn't have a dial, it has buttons!) * Sometimes the buttons are unresponsive
Other:
A decent flash. Good power output. Used it to take some portraits for friends and it worked very well.
Bottomline:
If you are thinking of buying a seperate flash for your DSLR and don't really feel like handing over all that money to Canon, give this one a try.
