Canon Speedlite 220EX flash is small in size, just like a cigarette packet, and weighs only 160g. It is a cute flash with power as much as double the built-in flash that makes it good for sun light, group portraits and indoor shooting with overhead light. It provides full frame coverage of 28mm, GN 22m at ISO 100 and features like high speed sync FP flash and flash exposure compensation.
Flash 220EX has a fast and easy to use shoe lock and mounting mechanism that reduces red eye problems. Recycling time is fast with 4 batteries. It has near infrared Auto Focus assist, supports E-TTL, second curtain sync and TTL, and can easily be integrated with Elan II and Type A EOS cameras. 220EX has flash exposure lock feature that is very helpful in horrible exposures. E-TTL, flash exposure lock and high speed sync features give this flash a distinct advantage over built-in flashes.
On negative side, 220EX requires more power, covers only 28mm, does not tilt, has no zoom head, no manual mode, is incompatible with wireless remote and has limited range AF support. In 2009, Canon has replaced 220EX with 270EX. Overall, Speedlite 220EX is inexpensive flash with minimum features, a real pocket fun due to its compact size and light weight, and perfect for small EOS cameras as travel partner.
