Tag Archives: 430EX II
The new Canon 320EX “hybrid” flash is the first camera flash with a built-in video light.
With the 320EX, Canon launches a 4th model of speedlite flashes. The closest relative to the new 320 EX is the current mid-range model Canon 430EX II, introduced in 2008 and priced at around $270.
The 320EX was announced in February 2011 at $249 and is similar in many respects: both flashes support the latest ETTL (II) technology, feature a flash head with swivel and tilt for indirect flash and a metal flash foot with quick release lever for easy attachment in the accessory shoe.
Yongnuo 468 versus Canon’s 430EX II – how does the $100 flash (e.g. from eBay) hold up against the mid-range speedlite from Canon costing about > 2.5x?
Finally, a Canon speedlite 430EX II has joined the collection (I plan on doing much more Canon testing in 2011!), and a direct comparison of YN468 vs 430 EX II is the topic of this article. Both speedlites were tested with a Canon Rebel T1i (Canon 500D in Europe).

I managed to add last night another 4 speedlights to the side by side comparison page. Overall, I have at least partial data on 90 strobes now, but it needs quite some time and research to collect all the info and verify it as much as possible.
