Balancing power with size, the Speedlite 430EX II from Canon offers a very useful guide number of 141' at ISO 100 and 105mm as well as complete compatibility with Canon's E-TTL / E-TTL II flash metering system. The flash head also offers an excellent zoom range of 24-105mm, which is expanded to 14mm with the use of the wide-angle diffusion panel. There is even the option to tilt the flash upwards 90° as well as rotate it right 90° or left 180° for bounce capabilities.

Wireless slave TTL functionality is possible with Canon's optical pulse transmission system. This is possible with one of 4 channels and 3 groups at up to 39.4'. This enables photographers to setup off-camera lighting without running cables. Other features include an AF assist beam, modeling flash, and high-speed, first and second curtain sync modes. It also recycles in 0.1-3.7 seconds and runs on 4 AA batteries. Additionally, it comes with a mini stand and a case.

    question

    Hello,If I buy two or more of these flashes, is it possible to set more then one flash off at a time? Do the units talk to one another wirelessly? Is their an additional cable I would need to set more then one flash off at a time? Thank you,
    Asked by: Anonymous
    If you are using a pro Canon DSLR body, the Canon 430EX II has the capability of being used as a slave flash, however, you will need a master flash to trigger them, such as the Canon 600EX RT: http://bhpho.to/1euoJ4J

    question

    Can I slave the 430EX wireless flash off-camera with my 60D as the master controller?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    Yes; the built-in flash on the Canon EOS 60D DSLR camera can be used as a Master flash. As such, you may trigger the Canon 430EX flash off-camera as a wireless flash by following the instructions in both the camera's and flash's instruction manual to setup the wireless flash feature on both items.
