The Canon Speedlite 430 EX II is redesigned to include features that increase its usability, making it more flexible and adaptable, as well as being easy to use. The Canon 430 EX II features a 20% reduced recycling time, which is silent to minimise any distraction caused to the photographer. With a metal mounting foot and redesigned connection pins, the Speedlite 430 EX II has better stability and the communication between the camera and the flash is also improved. The quick release and locking mechanism means the camera and flash can be connected rapidly. The Speedlite 430 EX II also features full manual control with 1/3 stop incremental settings, full control from the camera menu system (only when used with compatible EOS cameras), 9 custom functions, bounce and swivel head plus slave flash option, built in 14mm wide diffusion panel, and an auto zoom to match the size of the camera's sensor.

November 2012 - In the first of our 4-part Guide to Lighting Options, Steve Aves explains the basics of using on-camera flash. Of course, the three main benefits of flashguns have to be portability, ease of use and cost but how should buy one and are there any downsides?

Really good product. No problems when setting it up or connecting it to my camera. Only issue is it eats batteries. Worth investing in some rechargeable batteries.
Good But ..
Nice construction let down by uneven LCD lighting. The pleasure of ownership was greatly reduced by this simple fault. We have been making LCDs for a long time now and Canon cannot backlight one evenly. The flashgun was returned for refund.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
Good value for what you get
If you are not a profesional, this will be great for you. Smaller than more powerfull ones, which is great for space, but enough for me!
Top quality - top value

This is certainly my favourite flashgun. Ok there are one or two models even makes I have not tried but this is the best I have tried. Of the Canon Speedlites it is easily the best value for money in terms of everything it does and I have never felt able to justify paying more than twice as much for the next model up.
Great value Flash Unit
Highly recommended kit - does what it says on the box ... and does it well
I had a similar flashgun with my old Canon film SLR kit and it was a great performer. Recently returned to the Canon fold with their EOS60D so went for their dedicated flash. Very handy to be able to bounce flash with its tilt and swivel head. A good portable flashgun that doesn't take up much room in the camera bag and gives excellent results.
A Canon flash for Canon cameras. As good as you would expect it to be.
Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flashgun
Excellent value for money. Just changed my camera to Canon 6D so I wanted a new flashgun and this seems like the best choice for me.
