Very powerful and flexible advanced users flash gun, easy full-auto use.
Expensive, complicated parameters setting, can cause subjects to blink.
"...the build quality of the Canon guns are very good, plastic but much better than the sometimes cheap mouldings of the others. The 580EX II improves on this further by including a metal hot shoe foot and weather sealing for use in the rain (when used with a suitably weather-proofed body).
Great performance at a premium price - good if you've got deep pockets and want to use the built-in wireless slave features with other ..."

Fast recharge time, handy in use, plenty of light.
Price, battery insert.
"The Canon speedlite 580ex is the best flash unit i have worked with until this date. I photograph a lot of weddings, children and birthdays, so it's important that i relay on a good flash.
You can turn the flashhead 360 degrees sideways, 90 degrees up and a few degrees down (mostly for macro photo).
The guidenumber on 105 mm. is 58 and on 50 mm. it's 42, so compared to the older 550ex it is a good improvement and gives you lot's of light. The 580ex ..."
