Why Stock Photos?
The short answer is that we use stock photos on some listings to save us time and to save you money. The longer answer is that we love to take photos of each and every lens, camera, and accessory, but doing so takes a lot of time and makes it difficult to get everything listed. So, we decided to compromise: take gorgeous photos of some things and charge a little more for them, and use stock photos for other items and charge a little less for those, all else equal.
The items listed here were tested thoroughly by our trained technicians. If they observed any significant flaws, you’ll see them detailed above. If the items listed here are exceptionally awesome, you’ll see that noted above too. Regardless, please remember this is a used item and it’s bound to have at least a microscopic imperfection.
If you're interested in purchasing an item with specific photos and ratings, we don’t blame you one bit. Please visit one of our specific product listings (if available), usually marked with a serial number. If none are currently available, by all means, contact us.
The Canon 430EX II Speedlite Flash
The Speedlite 430EX II features a powerful flash (guide number of 141 ft./43m at ISO 100) with a fast recycling time in a compact, durable body. A quick-lock mechanism makes it easy to attach or detach the 430EX II from the camera, and a metal foot has been added for strength and durability. Flash controls can now be set through the camera’s LCD screen on compatible EOS Digital SLR cameras. The Speedlite 430EX II is also less noisy and features a faster recycle time. Since it is compatible with Canon’s wireless E-TTL, it can be used as an affordable “slave unit”.
The 430EX II is great for small events / weddings where you just need some fill flash. It has a fully articulating head that enables bouncing light whether shooting in portrait or landscape orientation. While it can be used as the primary light source, you’ll notice it struggling to keep up unless you have several seconds to wait for recycle times. If you’ll be shooting large groups, from a distance, or very quickly in low light, you might want to look at his big brother, the 580EX II. Otherwise, the 430EX II is wonderful option!
