Re: Canon 580EX II Speedlite, or just any big-ass flash?

I have a 430EX and the new, small 270EX. I've found the latter to be very useful in social situations and an especially good match to my G9 -- and it does bounce.

I've used both on my DSLRs and the 430EX provides more range and flexibility for the lenses I have than the smaller unit (but the 270 fits in the side pocket of my DSLR nose bags).
