Book Recommendation: Speedliter's Handbook by Syl Arena

Speedliter's Handbook: Learning to Craft Light With Canon Speedlites. By Syl Arena 2010 (Hard copy)

This book is by far my best resource for getting to know my Canon 270EX II and Canon 430EX II Speedlite flashes and to learn more about the author's Canon flash photography approach and techniques.

I highly recommend the Speedliter's Handbook for anybody who wants to get more involved with Speedlite flash photography on / or off their Canon EOS and / or compatible Canon PowerShot (G and various SX models) camera. (See Canon PowerShot camera compatibility below).

In this book you will find 400+ pages packed with everything that is required to learn and understand the current range of Canon Speedlites and how to use them.

Canon Speedlites covered in the Speedliter's Handbook:
  • Speedlite 270EX
  • Speedlite 430EX II
  • Speedlite 580EX II
  • Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX
  • Macro Twin Lite MT-24EX
  • Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2
For more information / user reviews or to purchase the Speedliter's Handbook please visit my Amazon aStore.

Canon PowerShot Compatibility
I use a Speedlite 270EX II flash instead of the Canon PowerShot SX40 HS's integrated pop-up flash. The Speedlite 430EX II is also compatible with the Canon SX40 HS. The E-TTL II zoom of the Speedlite 430EX II is fully compatible in the 24-105mm zoom range. Speedlites will work with the following PowerShot cameras: G6, G7, Pro 1, G9, G10, G11, G12, G15, G16, G1 X and SX30 IS / SX40 HS / SX50 HS SX60 HS.

Canon Speedlite EX Flash Model Range
(excluding the new Canon Speedlite 600EX-RT)
Canon Speedlite Flash 270EX II, 320EX, 430EX II, 580EX II
