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”.

Tim's Take

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!
