I do portrait photography, and this is the perfect flash for my business. It is second in line with canon's flash lineup, and comes loaded with features. It can be controlled from the camera body itself and has manual capabilities. The high speed sync is also very useful as you can use your camera's maximum shutter speed and still use the flash.

Not powerful enough for bounce flash.
With my new 5D Mark III, I still have to go to ASA 800 or above to get acceptable bounce flash result in the 10 to 15 foot distance range. Controls are overly complex and except in direct flash with no defuser this flash is simply under powered. I will exchange for a more powerful flash from either Cannon or third party equipment.

Just purchased Canon 430 EX flash. Did some initial tests and found it perfect for my needs. It's compact and light and throws enough light to light a room at an ISC 400.
Bought the flash about a month ago. So far has been very positive as a general flash. Lacks certain features, cannot be used as a master flash, only as a slave, no PC socket, makes it more difficult to use off camera, without additional accessories, and No support for HV external battery packs. Does have some good manual features such as power ratios, although would have preferred to have 1/2 settings instead of Ã¢..." setting, exposure compensation (+-) 2 stops. Auto settings get good results and custom setting on flash are good. Unit is quiet, recycles fairly fast with rechargeable batteries and easy to use once you learn how to use. Since I am not using this flash for professional reasons, the few features it lacks, was not important enough for me to buy the more expensive 600ex. For what I use it for, it meets my needs.
This is a wonderful all around flash. I carry this flash around with me all the time as it works great in most situations where I suddenly find myself needing the help of a flash. For the price point, it's the flash I have for general use.
This is the second 430 that I have. Both work great.
I wish flashes were less money, but they aren't. This one is a reasonable price for a great quality flash. It is important to not cheap out on a flash. If you are going to spend the money, you might as well spend a little more and get a better quality one.
Perfect for enthusiast photographers. Paired with 5Dmk3: great results.
I bought my first Speedlite from Adorama about 6 months ago. I loved it so much I just purchased a second Speedlite. I love the off-camera remote flash capability. I do a lot of real estate listing photography and the one Speedlite was great for lighting up a space or casting a soft light for nice texture and interesting shadows. This second unit more than doubles my pleasure. .doubles my fun!! Great buy!
I returned this product because is was too heavy. I was looking for a powerful speedlight for my Canon but this is too combursome
My first Speedlite, so exciting! There is quite a steep learning curve, but thanks to youtube and the manual, I am getting it figured out. The bounce flash ability is improving my indoor shots immeasurably!
Just added a second speed light to my camera bag. I am learning off camera flash and it was time to move up to two flashes. This is a great flash and works as advertised.
