BASED ON SOMEONE who has the CANON 400D (XTI REBEL)

Can u list the MAIN benefits that the 580 EX (II) has ?

over the 430

.

Forget about price, just think of the pure benefits that it potentially has.

i mean the real noticable benefits in terms of flash covergae, technical specs, and power?

It can be used as both a master and slave flash right? Where the 430 can only be a slave.

The 580 has more features and is bigger than the 430. The 430 is plenty for the XTI.

Saying the 430 is plenty for the XTi is misleading. The 580 puts out more light and if you need that amount of light to illuminate your subject it makes no difference if you are shooting with an XTi or a 1D series camera.

its is clearly more powerful than the 430 and its reach distance is stronger
and it has some cool features that im yet to understand. ha.

The 580ex II has a pc connection, a metal foot, external metering and "More Power". It also keeps your bank account from getting too big.

The big one for me was the built in PC connection - much easier than a shoe PC connection or modifying the 580EX I to have a PC connection by taking it apart. I use mine quite often with pocketwizards.
