Speedlite 430EX II not only comes with a better build quality but it has a new quick lock mechanism that allows the flash to be easily attached / detached from the cameras. The guide number is 141//43m at ISO 100 with a coverage of 24-105mm. Built-in AF assist beam works with all of the 9 points on an EOS camera.

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".

  • Superior build quality, including a metal foot for added strength
  • Approx. 20% faster recycling time, compared to previous 430EX
  • One-touch, quick-lock mechanism for easy attaching/detaching flash from camera
  • Full flash control possible on camera menu, with compatible EOS Digital SLR cameras
  • Virtually silent flash recycle
  • The flash head can be moved up from 0 - 90° (5 settings), left from 0 - 180° (7 settings) and right from 0 - 90° (4 settings)

      I think canon 430EX covers wide range of purpose already and to me, 580 is too big to carry daily bases.

                  I am learning to be a professional photographer. I have a Canon EOS Xsi and this flash is GREAT! I didn't even need to read the directions at ALL (even though I did read through it later just to learn all the buttons). I literally took the flash out of the box, put the batteries in, hooked it up to my camera, turned the flash on and started snapping photos. How easy is that?! AMAZING synchage (if that is a word). It makes my photos look SOOOO amazing and professional. BUY THIS FLASH! It is DEFINITELY worth the price
