Excerpt: The 430EX II is probably the best all around flash for any Canon camera. I shot on a 60D and this flash is all I need (along with a diffuser) for portrait and still photography. The only drawback is that it can't be used as a Master.
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Lightweight
Excerpt: A great external flash that is strong enough for my needs without breaking the bank. I do not use my flash often, but when I do, I wanted to have something better than the built in flash. The 430EX fits the need nicely! I would not hesitate to recommend this flash to anyone!
Pros: Consistent Output, Durable, Easy To Use, Fast Recycling, Lightweight, Powerful Output, Versatile
