The IF-980 e-TTL Flash for Canon from Opteka is a dedicated flash to be used with Canon DSLR or point-and-shoot cameras. The IF-980 features a guide number of 278′ at ISO 100 and an adjustable tilt head with six positions: -7 to 90°. The -7° downward tilt means that you can fully illuminate your subject when shooting close-up. You’ll be able to also twist it to the left up to 90° and to the right up to 180°. It covers a 24-180mm range (in 35mm full frame format) and extends to 18-180mm with the diffuser panel in place. In auto mode the zoom range is stepless, it does not set at 24mm, 35mm, and so forth, but matches the exact focal length of the zoom lens for optimal lighting. The flash supports rear curtain synchronization for shooting at slower shutter speeds. The IF-980 is equipped with wireless (optical) manual slave function.
The IF-980 has an autofocus Lend a hand for low-light photography, and an automatic power-saving function that turns the flash off when it’s inactive. It is powered by four AA batteries (not included), with a flash duration between 1/800 and 1/20,000 of a second. A convenient HV port means that you can connect the flash to an external power source for extended usage and faster recycling. The included stand means that you can set the flash up on a flat surface or to attach it to a tripod head, light stand, or clamp that has a standard 1/4″-20 mount.
