Get this 430EX II flash for hard-core outdoor fill flash , sports and portrait work. Personally I prefer the smaller 220EX flash; this larger flash works a little more quickly and has a little more power, which means a little more range in daylight, but I don't want to carry it around my neck all...
You are looking at one of the most popular DSLR accessories available - a shoe-mount flash. The Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash, at the time of this review, is Canon's middle child of standard Speedlite flashes.
The 430EX II is a magnificent flashgun with decent features. People looking for flashgun under a minimum budget, will find this model quite useful in their photography kit. It is not meant for high level professional work but can be put to work for basic and decent photographic needs.
I have used the 430 EX for a few years now, and have never found myself in a situation where I would need the much more expensive 580 or 600. I only use this indoors when shooting portraits, and even with my 135mm, I get plenty of light from this flash.
size, power, refresh rate, battery life
I'm using this flash in my studio and out in the field and am amazed at the power output and superb color accuracy. No more correcting for color casts in software, I get true colors every time.
It is as unintrusive, except for the handling, as the built in flash. Zooms in sync with my lens. Emits only as much light as you need. And the recharge of the flash is dead silent. All in all, an excellent piece of kit. But, one caveat - this is a slave lens, it does not have master control, i.e.
Easy to use. Silent recharge. Perfect exposure.
Buttons too small. Price.
Even though the Canon Speedlite 430EX is not built like the flagship 580EX II, it still provides excellent professional features at an affordable price.
