- Simple controls and an intuitive interface
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.
- Use remote flash to create the look you want
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 meters 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. Use multiple flashes together in groups, controlling the power of each group separately.
- Shoot flattering portraits using bounced light
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. The Speedlite 430EX III-RT can also zoom its flash output to match the angle of view of the lens being used.
- Dual wireless flash triggering
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 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.
