    ~140 ...


    $70 is change for you? I think there is a canon rebate still going on for 20 off or something. If I were the thread starter I would perhaps look for a used 550.

    $120-130 used off Fredmirand.com. I bought mine new for ~ $160-170 off amazon.com (from Adorama).

    430 is a LOT better if you can get for a similar price.

    might as well spend the extra $150-200 for a 580 it's worth it I think :dunno: :bigthumb:

    not if you dont have the money / dont need the functionality.

    But 420 is a bit limited, it doesnt really have any manual controls (without being a slave) from memory. 430 is also more powerful, charges faster, multiple firing etc etc.

    I just wish I could take advantage of my added features, gotta save up for another flash :)


    I was expecting the 580 to be more complicated and have alot more features. I went through it pretty quick. :hs:

    If its an EX then it is a current model. It charges fast, has ETTLII, has manual controls and more.

    It its an EZ, then its old school
