Its new, easily operated Control Dial makes selecting and changing flash settings a breeze.

The Speedlite 430EX III-RT has an improved bounce range: it can be moved up from 0–90°, can be rotated 150° to the left and 180° to the right. With this flexibility, it's easy to experiment with bounced flash, and to find just the right setup for compelling portraits, still life or other creative photographs.

Natural Color and Even Illumination Made Simple
For gorgeous, natural-looking color and even illumination the Speedlite 430EX III-RT comes bundled with both a new color filter and a bounce adapter. Helping to ensure consistent color in both the foreground and background of a composition, the color filter, placed over the front of the flash head, changes the color of the flash to match the ambient light. The camera then reads both the subject and background as having the same color temperature, and adjusts white balance for accurate color. The bounce adapter, an opaque white filter that also attaches to the front of the flash, helps to diffuse the flash's light, creating an even illumination that helps to add dimension and eliminate distracting shadows, especially in portraiture.
More Control for Critical Lighting
The Speedlite 430EX III-RT features both enhanced flash exposure compensation and an advanced light distribution feature for more control over the intensity and direction of the beam emitted. Perfect for balancing the brightness between subject and background, flash exposure can now be adjusted within a 6-stop range of +/-3EV, and in increments as small as ⅓ or ½ step, all using the Speedlite 430EX III-RT's new Control Dial. Light distribution can also be altered from Standard according to the photographer's intended field of view. Guide No. Priority mode automatically sets flash distribution toward the center of the composition for use with a telephoto lens. Even Coverage mode sets flash distribution for wide-angle photography, helping to minimize light falloff in the corners of the composition.In addition, the Speedlite 430EX III-RT features high-speed sync, which not only enables flash photography of fast moving subjects, it's also a useful tool to help add drama and depth to daytime photography. By using the Speedlite 430EX III-RT with a large aperture setting, a fast shutter speed and high speed-sync, it can be easy to capture the subject with even illumination, while blurring the background, highlighting the subject and creating an effective sense of depth.
