Default Canon Speedlite 270EX II

I am looking into buying the Canon Speedlite 270EX II. One reviewer on Amazon said that the flash would not swivel left to right and therefore was useless for shooting verticle pictures. Can anyone who has this flash confirm this? Any other advice about this flash would be appreciated,

Canon's website is selling refurbished 430EXII for $191. This is a better buy than the 270EXII.

A Canon 430EXII for $191.00 is a great deal, if that is the size of flash that fits your needs. I use a Canon 580EXII flash most of the time but also use a Canon 270EX flash. The 270EX flash is great for indoor shots and for fill light outdoors (within 10-15 feet) and it's easy to carry around being so small.
Comments always welcome.
