    Default Difference between 380EX and 430EX

    Is there any real difference between 380EX and 430EX? Should I upgrade?

    380EX is similar to 420EX but smaller guide number and without swivel head. But compared to 430EX, 430EX a lot better being got LCD, custom functions, manual settings and a pull-down wide diffuser...not forgetting one push of a button for tilt and swivel.

    If u really want to upgrade, go ahead but if 380EX is enough for general usage, then keep it.

    The bounce/swivel functions of the 430ex are definately worth the jump. If you area really on abudget get a 420ex. Eitehr that or get a 580ex

    420ex can also act as a slave flash.
    The manual control is definitely worth the upgrade.....

    But, I'd rather get a second hand 550ex for the prce of a 430ex....personal preference

    if you are willing to get 2nd hand products, get the 550EX. or else just get the 430EX.
