Canon Speedlite 380EX

Review Date: Jan 1, 2010 Recommend? yes | Price paid: Not Indicated | Rating: 8 

Pros: zoom head, tilt
battery door

Bought with my old Elan IIe and it has outlasted it. The problem with the battery door is that it's loose and pops open at inopportune times. A small, thick rubber band or two should be used to keep it shut. Just purchased a 430EX II and it feels much more solid. I'll keep it for off-camera use and for use with older camera bodies. Now that the 270 is out I would expect this model's desirability to drop.
