Canon has presented Speedlite 470EX-AI which is the first flash equipped with Auto Intelligent Bounce function.
Auto Intelligent Bounce technology automatically calculates distance from the surrounding walls and positions the speedlite head in order to obtain optimal light reflection.
A fully automatic flash mode minimally moves the head with each shot. Thanks to this, a photographer does not have to manually correct its settings every time. The flash is also equipped with a semi-automatic mode, which additionally adjusts the flash angle and the flash head during the change of orientation of the camera.

Apart from this interesting function, Speedlite 470EX-AI is quite effective as for the speedlite of this type. The guide number of 47 (ISO 100) and a wide range of focal length covering from 24mm to 105mm (or 14mm, with the use of a built-in adapter), enable a wide range of flash, also with the wide-angle shots.
New Canon Speedlite 470EX-AI has the HSS synchronization mode, thanks to which it is possible to take photographs with the use of a flash, even with the exposure time which exceeds the maximum flash synchronization time.

A shortcut button and a control knob ensure convenient access to the saved modes of work and make it possible to fully control the triggered light.
