    Canon flash doesn't offer automatic modes, so they'll always fire at full power (or less if u use the manual mode). This will be a bit harder to use.

What you need to do is to sync the aperture and ISO settings on the flash to be the same as the camera and to set the flash zoom accordingly.

    After buying 3 pieces of B&W UV, 1 Nikon NC & 1 Hoya Pro I stopped buying UV filters.

    Of the 3 types, i like the B&W best cos somehow it stays clean most of the time and when it get dust spots, I can just blow it away. even finger prints areeasy to wipe off using my lens coth. I had very bad experience with the Nikon (maybe its my luck) it attract dust easily and finger prints are hard to clean. (i dont use lens pen though) The hoya simply cant match the other 2, dust can get into your front element. If you look closely, Hoya hold the glass in place with a spring clip. B&W uses a screw in ring.

    Nowadays, I mostly use without filters. Only have B&W filter on my 400mm & 70-200f2.8IS

    B+W feels nicer.I don't really think that there is a significant optical difference between the well-known brands of filters except for flare-control and ease of cleaning which I think B+W is the best at (Not counting the really ex Leica and Heliopan filters).

    I think easiest to clean now are the new Hoya HD filters.
