    "The Canon Speedlite 430EX III camera is very compact. It's price is not as bad considering the features that it has. It has a built in catch light panel that will enhance the person's facial expression which I think is very neat. I think this camera is great for beginners as well as experts. "

    "This flash worked fine when matched to the Canon version of the YN560-TXII trigger but not when I tried them on a Fuji X-Pro2. I blamed the use of the Canon trigger on the Fuji camera and ordered the Nikon version of the trigger plus two additional flashes. It's a decent product."

    "Just know that you get what you pay for. It is on the cheaper end of camera flashes but it works well, surprisingly (for its price)! I try my best to avoid cheap products but I decided to give it a try just because it's the trusted Canon brand. I bought it to use in my photography class a few months ago and it hasn't failed yet. I'd recommend it."

    "This flash is excellent for SO MANY REASONS! If you are just beginning in photography, you should check out this flash. If you are a pro and you need either a back-up, a slave, something to experiment with, and/or if you love to work in manual, you should check out this flash. Yes, it doesn't have any automatic functions, but for the price to feature ratio, you get more than enough to up your game with flash photography."
