5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Results from the first shot, 22 Jan. 2014
This review is from: Canon Speedlite 430EX II Flash Unit (Camera)
Bought to work with my Canon 50D I have been very impressed with this Speedlite right from the first shot. It integrates with the camera's own controls via the rear screen so it is easy to set-up the camera and the flash together. The results are, as you would expect, far far better than can be achieved with the small 'pop-up' on the camera.

Recycle time is good and I have had no problems with taking multiple shots on one set of NiMH batteries.

The quality of the photos really takes a jump when this flash is used off camera via a separate synch cord and some form of diffuser.

It also works well as a slave with one of the larger Canon Speedlites 580/600 etc.

The only downside I can see is the likelihood of buying just a few more accessories e.g.

an off camera synch cord
a 5 in 1 diffuser
a rouge flash bender
one of Syl Arena's Speedlite books (snapshots to great shots)
