Canon Speedlite 430EX II Expert Reviews

The-digital-picture reviews the Canon Speedlite 430EX II and writes;
“Performance of the Canon Speedlite 430EX Flash is consistent with that of the Canon Speedlite 580EX Flash – very well. I don’t have much to report on it. Both of these flashes work very well as long as you understand Canon’s flash technology. For the difference in price, my advice is to get the Canon 580ex Flash. Of course, if the 430ex’s differences are meaningless to you, it will serve you very well.”
