430 EX II, everything it should be

Tim, J&R
8 April 2011
  • Excerpt: This flash has been great so far. It is an obvious improvement from the built in flash on my 20D, and has made indoor photography infinitely easier in my rather dark 1930's house. While it can't control other flashes, and may lack the additional range of the 580, the price and features were right for my needs.

Lot of Power

FLYGIRL, J&R
25 October 2010
  • Excerpt: I bought this to use with my new super-zoom. I still have much to learn in terms of using and maximizing all of the features but I am still able to get shots that I would never have been able to capture with a lesser flash. After trying the base model Speedlite, I'm glad I went with the larger "horsepower" of this model.

Nice ETF2 flash

dspg, J&R
12 May 2010
  • Excerpt: I liked this flash. Uses disposable batteries. Charge recycles incredible quickly. As powerful as you might want. No need to get a stronger flash. Fits the hot-shoe of my new Canon T2i nicely. Swivels. It is a bit plasticy, but light. Good photos; wouldn't go higher for portraits or parties. A bit pricey nonetheless, but you probably wont replace it anytime soon.

Mid level Canon flash

Tokyo Mike, J&R
27 August 2009
  • Excerpt: I bought a used Canon 30D a while ago and found out quickly that I needed a real flash. The mini flash that comes with the camera does little but fill in a shot. I have a Canon 10-22 lens that I have fallen in love with and hoped this flash would work really well with, but unless I go up to 14 I get a hard ring of darkness. Overall I do like the flash and I'm sure the longer I use it the more uses I will find for it. But it is not cheap.

  • Cons: Heavy
