The Canon Speedlight 430EX is a great full feature flashgun for Canon DSLR camera.

Normally £199.99 Instore at Comet for £116.37 (Or Less)

I got one from Derby today and the box was a little battered so they reduced it further to £95!!!

Checked stock and still avaiable in serveral other local comets so looks like a national reduction. (Does not show up online - IN STORE DEAL ONLY)





If you have invested in a Canon DSLR then this is a real deal!

Sigh ... see I think a flashgun just flashes ... didnt realise they were so complex.

So flashyphotos ... a Flashgun, why are they so good? :) Talk.

I'm surprised they've still got them since the replacement 430EX II has been out for about a year now.

Depends what you want a flash for, this one zooms with the camera, sets lots of camera feaures bounces off ceilings and walls to reduce redeye. The built in flash on a modern DSLR is ok for general snaps but if you earn a crust from your camera, or aspire to earn / publish you need something external

EG: Flash Range the built in flash on a DSLR had a rating of about 10meters, this has a rating of 48 Meters (The distance the unit can produce a workable light)., Also it recharges in 0.5 of a sec on average meaning you are not sitting on your thumbs waiting for a flash to charge. There are just so many reasons that if you have a Canon DSLR and want to take more than basic point and shoot photos this would be the best £116 you could put in your kitbag.

Can anyone please tell me if this is suitable to fit this camera I have EOS 400D Digital. And Do I need it, what would I use it for? I.E: what sort of phtography:thumbsup:

I got one last year and it was almost 200 quid. It is great for indoor photography, it takes away red eye by bouncing the flash off the ceiling and it makes shots more natural. I love mine and I use it alot

Good deal

Yes it works well with the 400D

As for using it, you tend to find when you have it you MAKE uses for it. It gives you added range and much better choices for portraiture etc. Its one of those things that once you have in your camera bag you will be amazed how much you reach for it.

Yeah, I love my flash. Got a Sigma one, love it. Really changes what you can do.

Cold, too bright


Nonsense - it automatically adjusts to exactly the right power level, or you can control how bright it flashes manually. I have the 430EX II and it's great. Quite addictive though, after a 580 EX II now so i can use the 430 as a slave.

For £116 go for it - you'll soon start to experiment. Even outside it's great for fill flash.

Have a good read of this to see what you can do. Very good article.

directional light obviously so you can bounce light off walls, etc rather than the subject...loks more natural in low light than the usual 'alien' shot from a standard flash, should less chance of red eye too....i have this one and paid approx 120 for it new 2 years ago....gives more light than the rubbish flash in the camera which tends to light up peoples faces

The 580exII lens is awesome but if you want to do some slave work you could buy the 430ex and get some cheap wireless triggers from the bay.

Got a set of PT-04's from this dude, work great. :thumbsup:

Yep, great flash. You'll get far better results than with the in built flash - being further from the lense it won't flatten your pics in the same way.

I have an old 20D which works effortlessly with it.

Should also cure the autofocus troubles you Canon owners have in low light :P

This deal was on months ago and near every store had sold out as they are end of line. Where abouts did you think they still had stock. Could do with one of these.

ok you use one of these flashes to allow for flexibility first and foremost. Bouncing the flash off a wall as mentioned above will eliminate red eye, but IMO that is the smallest benefit. Primarily you lose the nasty shadows you get with a direct flash and where people shots are concerned skin tones are far more natural! Also you usually get a very powerful IR illuminator which helps with auto focus in low light! Only downside with Canons is this doesn't always work if you customize certain functions.

If you have an advanced dslr then you need an external anyway as they tend not to have a built in flash.

For anyone considering a Sigma I would highly recommend this as it will produce a much more consistent exposure!

Could really do with one of these, however every store I've looked in, in and around Suffolk have no stock and being a discontinued item they can't search over the phone.

They can search on their computer system though. The friendly salesman in my local town searched on his computer and said there was only two left in the company that was on Friday evening. I suspect it was only scotland though. I purchased one that night and they are having it delivered from another store. He tried to get me to buy an extended warranty of course I said no. The crazy thing is he gave me the three year one for free and in the end I only paid £115. Apparently they can discount products but cant give the discount as cash.

Have your local store do a search on their computer system.
