Canon Speedlite 430EX II Review

The Canon Speedlite 430 EX II is a speedlite flash specifically designed for the Canon’s Digital Single Lens Reflex Cameras. The quality of its build is praiseworthy as it is superior to any other. It encourages an added strength to its quality provided by its metal foot. It makes possible the impeccable full flash control located at the On Camera Menu and the compatible Digital EOS.


Those novice photographers will surely not get intimidated with the appearance of this speedlite flash. It does not have the complicated appeal which other devices of the same kind have. If you are looking for a flash which is so versatile and can be used on both indoors and outdoors, then the Canon Speedlite 430 EX II will give you just that. It is sturdy and offers a great number of manual controls which are all very easy to override. The 430 EX II is known for delivering a very powerful performance which is not at all battery consuming.


The flash is not at all picky as you can just use a typical entry-level double A battery and take hundreds of shots right on. The rare sync feature also improves the sharp pictures taken on indoor activities. It has a quick response as it does no take longer than two seconds for you to get your high-quality and sharp images. The Canon Speedlite Flash does a wonderful job in calculating the amount of light which it is subjected to excrete to be able to get more exposure to the photos. There is no more dilemmas of overly bright and contrastingly overly dark imageries. In comparison to other flashes, what set the Speedlite 430 EX II apart is its capacity to detect, find and focus to the subject without a fuss even if you are in some low lit corridor or a really incapacitated dark room. It says bye-bye to those moments where you almost destroyed your DLSR in annoyance, thanks to this great feature.


But then again, the difference it has to other brands, technically, is its possible drawbacks such as the bulkiness which adds a little weight to the already heavy camera. The expensiveness it has is way over the top compared to other competitors, as well and the buttons it comes with may be found a little troublesome to press most especially for those who were blessed with large fingers. Other than that, it works and looks like a pro. If you are an expert in photography, you will notice that some photos have shadows in it even if it has been shot outdoors. That is why flashes nowadays are particularly important. The Canon Sppedlite 430 EX II gives you the perfect excuse to spoil yourself a little bit when it comes to your passion. You may think that it is a bit capricious, but the truth is, for what it is worth, it is probably a great buy. No doubt about it.
