Canon Speedlite 430EX

As shown from image above, flash in absolutely MINT condition. Comes with pouch. This is a very mint set, used only a couple of times.

The 430EX is one of the very versatile models and one of the best value for money flashes for canon around. Lower end models such as 220EX or 270EX are not recommended here at LENS.sg because they do not allow for tilting and rotating, this greatly reduces the ability to accurately light up scenes by methods such as bouncing off ceilings or walls, higher end models such as 580EX and 580EX mark2 are definitely nice to have, if not for the fact that they cost more and weight more as well, making them less desired for spare flashes or travelling. But unless you are an event photographer and need super fast recharging time by connecting to a battery pack, or need the master function for the wireless, otherwise the 580EX's advantages are limited as well.

Older models such as 380EX and 420EX do come cheaper but have slower recharging time and lack manual/flash EV compensations settings on them. Third party flash... well they are built to be budget, thus have limited durability and lifetime for sure. QC is also a factor to beware of. With these in mind, it is easy to see how the 430EX is definitely one of the best buys around. Note that the new in built wireless flash commander in 7D works perfectly with this flash unit.

Selling for $350.
