Pixel X800C Standard | Flash Speedlite for Canon

Pixel X800C Standard is a fully featured e-TTL (II) and HSS enabled speedlite flash for Canon DSLR cameras. It is packed with an array of features including ETTL, Manual, and Stroboscopic modes, HSS, second curtain sync, wireless master and slave options… It has a high guide number of 60 which is identical to Canon’s top model 600EX-RT. For on-camera use, it provides nearly all of the functions of a Canon 600EX-RT, though for a small fraction of the price.

Build quality of the flash can stand side to side with well known brands such as Canon, Nikon. Pixel really produces high quality products so the flash is really robust and firm, furthermore buttons are also really nicely positioned and pleasant to use. Overall build quality is much better than you would expect from the flash speedlite of this price tag.

If you are looking for a great value flash for on camera work then the Pixel X800C is definitely one to consider. X800C flash is great for the money. For off-camera use we suggest to go with the Pixel X800C Pro model which features Pixel King receiver built-in. 2.4GHz radio triggers are much more convenient and reliable than the Optic Wireless triggering system.

Pixel X800C Standard is fully compatible with Canon E-TTL / E-TTL II metering. It features a powerful guide number of 60m (ISO 100, 200mm) as well as an impressive zoom range of 20-200mm, along with a wide-angle diffuser for 14mm coverage on full-frame cameras. Bounce lighting is also possible with tilt from -7 to 90° and rotation left and right 180°. The X800C TTL exposures are very good and quite consistent, bounced or direct. Flash Exposure Compensation (FEC) adjustments are working as they should

X800C has a recycle time of about 2.5 seconds and has high-speed sync, 1st and 2nd curtain synchronization settings. Also, it supports a multi flash stroboscopic mode for multiple flashes during a single exposure. It runs on 4 AA batteries and comes with a mini stand and diffuser cover.

The X800C (and similar Pixel flashes) are still quite clearly matching the Canon 600EX-RT for light output though. So the Pixel flashes can really match the Canon 600EX-RT for power, where many other third party flashes are at at least 1/3 of a stop bellow.
