Focus on your composition

Capture photos worth sharing with the Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI Flashgun. No ordinary flashgun, the 470EX-AI has a motorised bounce and swivel head which does all the hard work for you, so you can focus on your composition.

It's equipped with a high-performance CPU which controls the motorised flash head. It instantly measures the distance between your subject and the ceiling and automatically adjusts itself to give you the best bounce angle.

No more experimenting to get that perfect shot or keeping your subject waiting, just professional-looking, naturally lit images with no shadows or glare.

Brilliant lighting

Wherever your photography takes you, you can be prepared for any subject. Great for weddings and events, the 470EX-AI has a guide number of 47 m. This makes it ideal for lighting large groups and bouncing light off walls and ceilings for softer, more natural results.

And when you're shooting with a zoom lens, the flash aims to match the viewing angle you're using, so you can light further and wider.

Light up scenes

Not just for portraits, you can shoot other subjects too, no matter how tricky. The 470EX-AI can be placed and triggered up to 10 m away, so you can light the scene the way you want. No extra equipment needed.

For those who use eos R cameras, this is an excellent option. Setting up bounce flash could not be easier. I have no expertise in the use of flash guns so this is ideal for me.
