I am no pro by any means. I did do a favor wedding. I found out quick, during the father daughter dance, that I couldn't focus because I didn't have enough light. I was trying to be cute and use radio transmitter to trigger 3 remote flashes. That would be fine but with no focus there is no photo, no flash from the remote flashes at all. People with point and shoot cameras were taking pictures. I am about to crap my pants. It dawned on me that I have to have my 580EX II on the camera for the focus assist (red light). I quickly recovered and caught the last half of the dance.
Definitely a pro level flash. I can control flash exposure compensation from the back of my camera (Canon 5D mark II),. Flash swivels the full 360.
I bought mine in a very used state and it seems to be holding up well.
Some nights I will take 450 flash shots at an event, sometimes taking 3 shots rapidly in multi firing mode. The flash is able to recycle and keep up. I can take about 250 shots before the recycle time starts to lag enough that I have to swap in a second set of rechargeable batteries.
If you are debating the 430EX versus the 580EX II, go for the 580. The extra power is needed should you decide to bounce the flash. It's not all that super powerfully anyways. It feels slightly above average in the power department, which is enough a vast majority of situations. The 360 degree swivel head is definitely helpful.
The flash and batteries definitely add a bit of weight to your rig, but that's the price to pay for controlling lighting where ambient really isn't going to cut it.
Indoors and in smaller rooms, it is effective when used as a bounce flash off the ceiling or walls, creating a nice, even soft light, especially if the reflective surfaces are white.
Now i have 2 of these. easy to work with no matter where.
Perfect if you are traveling by plane, you will always have good light.
If you have auto focus lense, it`s THE BEST way to use the infra-red focus system of the flash. It doesn matter how dark it is, you will have your subject focused really fast.
I have been in the wholesale photographic equipment business for a few decades and I know that many manufacturers set their prices for accessory equipment based on the price of the cameras that they are designed for. I just have to say the six hundred dollars is way more than a flash like this should cost, no matter what it does. Having said that, I will still probably buy more of these (or it's successor) when I need them.
