Bringing a new level of versatility and capability to flash photography, the Speedlite 430EX II features a powerful flash (guide number of 141 ft./43m at ISO 100) with a fast recycling time in a compact, durable body. A one-touch quick-lock mechanism makes it easy to attach or detach the 430EX II from the camera and a metal foot has been added for strength and durability.

Flash controls can now be set through the camera's LCD screen on compatible EOS Digital SLR cameras. The Speedlite 430EX II is also quieter, recycle time is 20% faster (as compared to the 430EX) and since it is compatible with Canon's wireless E-TTL, it can be used as an affordable "slave unit".

Cool flash


from West Palm Beach, Florida

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.


General Flash


from Oregon

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 â..." 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.

Great general flash


from San Diego, CA

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.


Great little flash


from Brandon, MS  -  Semi-pro Photographer

This is the second 430 that I have. Both work great.


Great Flash at Best Price


from Addison, IL  -  Photo Enthusiast

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.


Excellent flash!


from New York, NY  -  Photo Enthusiast

Perfect for enthusiast photographers. Paired with 5Dmk3: great results.


It's my second


from Northern Virginia  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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!


too heavy


from NH  -  Photo Enthusiast

I returned this product because is was too heavy. I was looking for a powerful speedlight for my Canon but this is too combursome


A Whole New (Brighter) World!


from Redding, Ca.  -  Photo Enthusiast

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!


Great flash


from Waxahachie, Texas  -  Semi-pro Photographer

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.

Questions about this item:

Crad C  I have a canon t3i rebel will this speed lite work with my camera?
LARRY P  Yes, it works with all current Canon cameras. At half the price of the 600 EX-RTand with many of the same features, it is a great deal. I love it. A friend changed her mind and got one instead of the 580 after using mine at a wedding.
Crad C  Larry thanks for the info . I am new to photography how difficult is it to learn to use this flash?

Sonny B  What ever happen to the 580 ex II flash? Is the 430 ex II is good for 5d II too ?
WEI X  580 has more power than 430. They both work very well on 5d II. One thing worth mentioning is 580 has wireless trigger function that 430 does not have. Hope this answers your question.
Sonny B  Thanks Wei !
