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.
