Canon 580EX II Speedlite Flash is a professional level flash that incorporates Canon’s E-TTL and E-TTL II automatic functionality.  What this means if you can simply plug the flash unit into the camera’s hotshoe and it will flash with perfect output every time. The most powerful flash in our range of rental flashes is also the smartest, even offering 2.4GHz wireless radio transmission between other compatible flash and camera units.

Beautiful light bouncing can be achieved thanks to the wide tilt and rotational range of the flash head as well as it’s zoom range. Zoom range is flashes is the ability to ‘pin-point’ the light output, much like a snoot on a studio light.  The careful combination of zoom and light direction can create accurate and creative lighting options.

Canon’s 580EX II Speedlite Flash is our most popular hire flash, not just because of it’s super light sculpting but rapid recycle and huge output of GN 190′ @100iso – 200m. Where renting the 580EX II Speedlite really comes in handy is that it communicates with other Canon Wireless flashes and can be used to create complex strobist setups.  This is done with either the integrated wireless transmission or a seperate trigger kit.

The crystal clear rear display holds all relative information but the best bit is the vast array of buttons. All in all, the 580EX II is the go-to hire flash for our pro-level wedding and journalist friends.
