A portable, powerful Speedlite flash that’s easy to use – on and off the camera
Take a new approach to lighting with a Speedlite flash that’s powerful, versatile and portable. Radio-frequency triggering makes off-camera flash easy to do, and opens up new ways to get creative with your photography.
A guide number of 43 (m, ISO100) means there’s enough power for most occasions.
The Speedlite 430EX III-RT weights just 295g and is only 113.8mm long, so there’ll always be room for it in your bag.
Powered by readily-available AA batteries, the flash recycles following a full-power flash in just 3.2s.
The controls on the Speedlite 430EX III-RT echo those of many EOS cameras. Shortcut controls give access to key features, and a control wheel allows quick adjustments to be made. A lock switch prevents settings from being changed accidentally. An LCD screen shows settings and shooting information at a glance, and is illuminated for low-light conditions.
Speedlite 430EX III-RT flashes can also be placed away from the camera, to simulate light coming from different directions.
Using Radio frequency triggering, Speedlite 430EX III-RT units can be controlled from up to 30m away, and do not require direct line of sight with the camera. This means they can be situated in more places, letting you create even more moods and effects.
The Speedlite 430EX III-RT can also be remotely controlled with optical triggering, so it will fit in immediately with your existing flash set up. It can be fired from 10m away using the optional Speedlite Transmitter ST-E2 or the Integrated Speedlite Transmitter built in the some EOS cameras.
Use multiple flashes together in groups, controlling the power of each group separately. Up to five groups can be created, with a maximum of 15 flashes in each group.
A movable flash head allows light to be bounced from large surfaces, like walls or ceilings, creating soft, shadow-free lighting that’s perfect for portraiture.
A built-in reflector panel can be deployed to create sparkling ‘catch lights’ in a subject’s eyes, bringing their expression to life.
Fit the included Bounce Adapter to soften the light even more. A coloured filter is also supplied, which aims warm up the colour temperature of the flash’s output so that it more closely matches the colour of indoor ambient lighting.
The Speedlite 430EX III-RT can zoom its flash output to match the angle of view of the lens being used.
Use the Speedlite 430EX III-RT with other flashes, such as the Speedlite 600EX-RT, as part of a multiple flash setup.
Control the Speedlite 430EX III-RT off-camera with a flash trigger, such as the ST-E3-RT, or with an EOS camera’s built-in Integrated Speedlite Transmitter.
The Speedlite 430EX III-RT can be fired while off-camera using radio-frequency or optical triggering, giving photographers huge versatility. When using radio-frequency triggering, flashes can be placed up to 30m away from the camera and do not have to be within direct line of site. This means they can be placed in many more locations, such as outside a room firing in through a window.
Optical triggering allows EOS cameras featuring a built-in Integrated Speedlite Transmitter (e.g. EOS 760D, EOS 70D and EOS 7D Mark II) to fire the Speedlite 430EX III-RT from up to 10m away, without the need for extra equipment.
The Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX is a dedicated ring flash unit for macro photographers. It offers a guide number of 14 and full ratio control between the two flash tubes.
If you shoot macro subjects and are looking for either flat field or more advanced lighting, the Macro Ring Lite MR-14EX should be at the top of your list. It is a macro specialist unit and, while it can be used for portraits close in, the guide number of 14 isn’t really powerful enough for long-range work. It is also useful for medical photography, especially dentistry where shadowless lighting is required for oral examination.
The Canon Speedlite Macro Twinlite MT-24EX is a macro flash unit that gives macro photographers maximum control over light power and for creative shooting. Two separate flash heads are able to swivel around the lens or aimed separately and even removed from their holder and mounted off-camera.
This Twin Lite is designed for macro specialists who want to creatively light their small subjects with maximum control over light power and direction. It mates perfectly with any of the Canon macro lenses but is most especially useful when paired with an MP-E65mm f/2.8 1-5x Macro lens. Specifically aimed at photographers shooting macro subjects, from insects and flowers to still life and abstracts, it gives more control and more options when lighting your subjects.
