The Canon 430EXIII-RT Flash is Canon's update to the little 430EXII. The famous radio triggering capability from the 600EX-RT has trickled down into the smaller powered little brother. This flash now can act as a master as well! Control other 430EXIII-RT, 600EXII-RT or 600EX-RT flashes via the built in radio triggering mode or control older 430EX, 430EXII, 580EX, or 580EXII flashes using the optical triggering mechanism. This flash is fully compatible to use in any combination with other 430EXIII-RT, 600EXII-RT, 600EX-RT, or ST-E3-RT Transmitter. Pair it with our Manfrotto Umbrella Swivel to mount it directly to a light stand for tons of applications.
