  • 1Description

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

    is this flash compatible with canon rebel xs?
    Asked by: Anonymous
    It should work fine in Tv mode. However, it won't work if your autofocus is set to AI Servo. Check the setting and change it to One Shot. If that doesn't do it double check the custom functions, but the majority of the time people have trouble with AF assist it's because they're in AI Servo.

    question

    Is this flash compatible with the Canon 70D, for wireless triggering, I do need a transmitter or the camera wireless triggers the speedlite? Tank you.
    Asked by: Anonymous
    This flash will work with a wireless trigger. You will need to purchase the higher end Canon flash that has the remote trigger built in, this flash will only receive a trigger or work on the camera hot shoe if you have one.
