430exII and using the camera in AV mode

Go to Red Menu -> 3rd option -> External Speedlite Control -> Flash sync speed in Av mode, and check your settings. The speed may be limited unless you over-ride it.

Also, try with everything on Manual and see if that fixes your issue. I suspect it's the Av that's the problem though.

It could be. Even if that setting is mainly there to prevent too long times when using flash in dark environments. Here the problem is the flash doesn't want to use short times. But I haven't tried if the 1/60-1/250 limit actually caps the top speed too, in spite of having high speed flash enabled.
I'm of the opinion that instead of using this limitation to which exposure times can be used in Av mode with flash, it's better to use M mode. Hence my inexperience with this setting.

The work around for AV is to leave the program setting alone, set minimum shutter speed to 1/125-1/200, set your flash to HSS, and let the camera do its thing. You can also engage auto and engage safety to ISO and I believe that works with AV use as well

Update:
you have to crank up ISO High enough so it consistently lands above 1/200-400

From Saturdays wedding. Shot this just before we left for the night. Used a 6x9 white card and taped it to back of the flash.. Love the ISO capabilities of this camera

Yes, I agree. I don't know who lives in the house but it doubles up as a gallery and this kind of artwork is all around.

Excellent shot! Did you point the flash straight up, or did you angle it slightly forward?

Thank you. Pulled the trigger a month early, but am glad I'm committed.
