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.

Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flashgun
About Me Casual Photographer
For the price, quite a versatile flash and my first decent one to date. So far used for portraiture on a Canon 60D. Packs away neatly into my Crumpler camera bag and is a sturdy bit of kit. Would recommend as a decent mid-range flash.
I would definitely recommend this flash!

430EXII Speedlite - not over-the-top
from Lancaster, Lancashire
I've recently become aware of the shortcomings of my original Canon Speedlite 420EX which has done sterling service for a number of years and is still going strong. I was tempted to go for a 580EX II, (strobe multi-flash looks interesting) but I read a review commenting that these units were much bulkier/heavier than the 430EX II which changed my mind. There is also a hefty price difference. With Canon now opting for a radio remote control system, again very expensive, instead of optical pre-flash, I thought I'd better upgrade while I could. Automatic ETTL II control by my 7D camera appears flawless and easy to use whether on the camera hot-shoe or on my ETTL compatible extender cable for more interesting shadows. The addition of the Pro series flash diffuser adds to the versatility (available separately). The included plastic foot with tripod mount facility, whilst not rugged, does suffice if you don't over-tighten it. Manual zoom is very useful for controlling the illuminated area independently of the camera zoom. Manual control of intensity is similarly useful for setting as key light, fill, or rim light.I'd like to see a sensibly priced quick fix / removable perspex adaptor for coloured gel (Rosco/Lee) strips to fit the 430EX II to complete the kit. All in all, I think this has been a valuable addition to my kit bag.
Excellent quality flashgun from Canon
CANON 439EX Flashgun
Only used as a general purpose flashgun for indoor use so far. Recently bought to replace third party flashgun that worked on 300d but did not always appear to 'talk' to a newer 60d
Excellent quality with plenty of adjustments. Good manual
I would recommend this product
Another excellent product produced by Canon
