    Do you own one? Is it any good? I want to purchase one for my 450d i'm thinking Canon 580 EX but I want to see some results first. I can't seem to find any images online, have you guys taken any photos using that flash?

    I own two 580EX "flash guns" (also called speedlights) and I love them. I use them on just about every shoot. Go to my website at www.jimcolmanphotography.com and look in the "wedding" gallery. Most of the images were shot using a 580EX or another speedlight or two, or three.

    I'm talking about lighting something with one huge burst of light, not painting with light. Maybe I'll light up my cul-de-sac some evening. :x:

    that would be awesome. Make it look like daytime.

    or put them all in front of one house so it looks like a nuke just hit.

    or tape them all together and make a light canon.




    I only have 2 sb600's. Buying 4 more as soon as the wife forgets I just bought new ice hockey goalie pads... :sadwavey:
