BEST USES

Comments:

If you need a portable easy to use strobe for fill, portraits and ease of use with your Canon camera this is a good choice. I personally use it mostly in the studio, in manual mode and with some light modifiers. It can be slaved to your in camera flash several different ways and I have used it with radio triggers. It's easier to move around and a bit cheaper than some other studio strobes. I am limited in the size of my studio space at this time and this works well in those confines. It isn't perfect but for the cost it is suitable for what I need. The only draw back that I find is the head of the unit doesn't lock at all bounce angles and if you use an on flash softbox attachment the head can change position from the weight.

Comments:

I use the 430 EX II flash with my Canon T2i SLR. I put off the purchase, because it was hard to justify the added cost, given that the built in flash took good pictures. Don't wait. Every picture is better with this flash - indoor, outdoor or fill. Exposure is great, colors more natural, and choice of bounce angles add special lighting effects. The only negative is having an extra item to carry, which means you are more likely to be caught without your SLR/Flash to capture that perfect shot.

430EX II an Excellent Flash

PROS

CONS

  • Cannot Run a Slave

BEST USES

  • Fill Flash

Comments:

I bought this flash as a primary flash unit for general flash & fill use and the product works great. It can be slaved to the 530, but other units cannot be slaved to the 430; however, knowing this, I went ahead with the intention of buying the 530 later if I really needed it. But so far, I don't. This works really well--as advertised--with my Canon DSLR and helps me capture the images I want even with my inexperience. One thing I did not realize is that it comes with its own durable case and includes a stand that allows you to place the flash on a level surface or attach it to a tripod. Well worth the money over the third party options. If I could slave other units to it, it would be a definite 5 stars.

WHEN I ENTERED THE STORE WITH MY WIFE WE WERE GREETED WITH A "HELLO"!! We inquired about the different flashes and the store rep. knew his stuff and all about the product and differences in the flash. There was a CANON REP. in the store who took more than 15 minutes in showing my wife and I all that we can do with this camera. He explained the differences of all the different speeds as well as how to use the Flash. The store was clean, as well as the bathroom being clean and the personnel were all professionally dressed. We purchased the flash as well as a Hood Cover which was ordered. We were notified app. 6 days later to pick up the cover and again a very PROFESSIONAL AND COURTEOUS ATMOSPHERE. Yes, we could have gone 2 miles away to [@]...AND DID A PRICE COMPARISON,BUT WE REALLY GOT AN EDUCATION & EXPERIENCE at the ABE'S OF MAINE STORE IN EDISON,NJ...THEY WERE GREAT AND GAVE US A CANON WEBSITE TO ENHANCE OUR CAMERA EDUCATION FOR THE 7D AND OTHER CANON PRODUCTS!!!

I use it as a main flash and as a slave to the Canon 580ex and Canon ST-E2. As with any Canon product it works great. But, as with the Canon 580ex, there is a learning curve with the controls,especally since I am using it as a slave flash.

Well, was contemplating if its going to be 430EX II or the 320EX, and reading a lot of reviews online, almost everyone favors the 430 with the budget that I had. The flash is a must have accessory if you plan to do some serious photography or atleast want to understand the best effects of light.

this flash works great with my 60D, only thing that I think the flash compensation seems cannot be controlled by the camera when it is in the bounce position. All other functions work great. It definitely provides me many more lighting options for my shoots. 100% satisfied.
