430EX II for £155 delivered (after rebate)
« on: June 20, 2013, 06:20:03 AM »
Hello all,

For anyone interested in the UK/EU, I've just bought a new 430EX II speedlight from Asda Direct for £175.45
(incl. delivery - use the discount code "camera10" to get this price).  - compare:

http://camerapricebuster.co.uk/prod.php?n=CanonSpeedlite430EXII&p=717

You can them claim £20 cashback from Canon http://www.canon.co.uk/summercashback/index.html (scroll along the lenses section). 

Hope this helps someone!  :)

Interesting, I didn't even realise ASDA sold better camera gear than the vivitar stuff

Is it true that, you can not use AF Assist light on Manual, Av, Tv mode? (using 430ex ii)

That is false. The AF assist grid works great in all modes unless disabled via a custom function.

Pitch Dark Location
Under custom setting, AF Assist light enabled: 0
One Shot AF Mode
Single Shot Drive
Flash on ettl
Manual or AV mode

I better visit canon service.

even my cheapo yongnou does give off a AF pattern that works well, I can't imagine everything is right with your camera. Try doing a factory reset on the camera.

Thanks for the response, it made me think for possible camera settings I've disabled.
Indeed I remember and have encountered familiar setting before,
and disable it on my 6D, thinking that 6D has a built in AF-Assist light and don't want to use it.
