Sold me used item for the price of a new one, offered me to return it, when I was not able to - it was time-sensitive purchase.

Great Flash.

on 10/21/2008

20% faster than the previous model. I really like the fast recharge it offers. It seemed to be easy on the batteries too, meaning that it does not seem to suck the life out of them in 10 minutes of use.

Compact Flash

by Ed on 11/15/2008

I purchased this Canon flash to use on a Canon SX10IS for inside shots. It has some nice improvements over the previous 430 flash. It is easier to attach/lock down. The SX10IS camera does control the TTL functions on the flash. Uses 4 AA batteries and so does the SX10IS. Takes 150-200 flash with new batteries. Has a diffuse pull down and can be afjusted to bounch the flash forward, back and side to side. Very satisfied with on the quality of the product and quick delivery.

Product Overview

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".
