    how does moving it to the side a couple inches justify using it?
     
  2. couple inches?

    it keeps the flash *over* the lens so you're lighting up the scene evenly.

    For event shooting I'm not completely convinced of the usefullness of it yet. Sometimes I don't even point my flash in the direction of the subject... I'll bounce it off a wall behind me or in the corner which the 580's head has no trouble turning to do so.

    Good for shooting portrait orientation so you don't have those shadows to the side.
