A&P 580EX or 430EX?

  1. I have a friend willing to sell me her 430EX flash, for $215.... but I was browsing Fredmiranda and saw a 580EX for $300... does it matter which one I get?

    The 580EX is slightly more powerful and can do some wireless business you probably don't need. You'll probably be fine with the 430.

    I love my 430EX and I'm still learning how to really use it, but I would love to have the wireless capability of the 580EX eventually. I figured I'll learn flash photography with the 430 then buy a 580 and use the 430 as a slave.
