Product details

The Canon Speedlite 430-EX II Flashgun is a brilliant mid-range tool packed with features in a compact frame.

Powerful all-rounder

Versatile and packed with impressive illuminating power, the Speedlite 430-EX-II offers a Guide Number of 43, wireless slave flash facility, nine custom functions and 25-105mm zoom head to give you even greater shooting options.

Portable and compact, it's totally suited to bounce flash and telephoto lens shooting. You'll achieve accurate flash exposure in all situations when employing the E-TTL II metering with compatible cameras – even if you're bouncing light off a wall or ceiling.

Set the flash manually in 1/3 stop increments from 1/1 to 1/64th power to achieve greater control.

Outstanding auto zoom head

When teamed with a compatible EOS digital SLR, the Speedlite 430-EXII Flashgun automatically picks up the camera's sensor size, zooming the flash head for better scene coverage. It helps reduce wasted light, improving battery life and recycling times as well.

Flash coverage is provided for a wide range of shooting scenarios by the 24-105mm auto zoom head and 14mm wide-panel diffuser. The head features a tilt and swivel mechanism that permits bounce flash for softer lighting when using a single on-camera flash.

Wireless capability, flash control and AF Assist

You can use the Canon Speedlite 4-30EXII as a wireless slave flash, triggering it with an appropriate master flash unit. Since it's small with a high power output, it's perfect for creating a portable studio with several flashguns.

You'll be able to adjust all aspects of flash control from the camera menu, including flash power settings and all nine custom functions, when teaming the Speedlite with a compatible camera.

What's more, the flashgun is capable of emitting an infra-red focusing beam to provide contrast for between one and nine AF points, so the lens can focus better when you're shooting in low light levels.

Convenient power and durable construction

Lightweight, portable and delightfully compact, the Speedlite 430EX II is powered by four AA batteries. It offers approximately 20% faster recycling times than the previous model, and its near-silent operation is particularly handy in delicate situations such as wildlife photography.

With a metal mounting foot and quick-release latch, the connection between camera and flash head is both simple to use and totally secure for rugged usability and peace of mind.

The advanced Canon Speedlite 430-EX II Flashgun offers so much to improve your photography, whilst taking up minimal space in the kit bag!
