curious if anyone has any praises of the 580 flash over the 550.
I currently have the 550 and what little shots I've shot I wasn't particularly liking the look from the 550. So if anyone could post some pics from their 580 shots and their thoughts on the flash I'd greatly appreciate it.
Thanks
Eric

I have only used my 580 at a wedding, so I'm not gonna post that stuff here. What I can tell you is I am VERY happy with the output of the 580. It just seems to be more acurate than the 550. Now my 550 is about 5 years old, and may have been close the the end of it's useful life. It's now a back up the the 580. Good Luck!

Taken at 1/60th with iso 800 ...f5.6 I think.. ETTL-2 with + .5 compensation..which I find works pretty well when on the go.. unless the subject is wearing all white,..then I add + 1.5 to + 2.0 to the compensation..



Here, is when I began doing every one of these group shots at events in manual flash mode.. I shot this at 1/15th 800 iso and f4.5 from my 17-35 f2.8 L lens which has become my standard lens for event shoots where I have to photograph people in small groups..with a 1.6 format digital camera...otherwise I'm using my 28-70 f2.8 L lens for that.. and I get pretty good results.. The thing to remember is not to let the camera / flash do all the thinking for you... because if you do,... bad stuff happens....yep!

Upgrading to the new 580 flashes is a back burner issue for me at this time.. I'll just use what I've got for now..

not sure how helpful this will be as I went from a 420 to the 580, but over on FM, there was a ton of people who REALLY saw a big difference between the two, with the 580 being much better on the later bodies (20D & 1D mk II)...
