Are there ay 550Ex users out there? I've inherited one (not recieved yet) and was wondering if anyone has linked one to a 430EX with any success......

I use one for location work with a 580 and ElinchromRQ, but I use RF602 radio triggers, to fire them all.
The 550 has always worked faultlessly.
Sorry not used with a 430EX, but I've 2 x 550's that I use set to master and slave, so I expect you should have no problems..
Yes I have used one to control a 430EX MKI I just set the 430EX to slave and put the 550 on the hot shoe and it just worked.
i have used both and still do for portrait shots but i use a canon st-e2 to trigger them .
Cheers strawman, sounds exactly the same as linking a 580 to the 430 then. Thanks for the replies everyone, it's great to have access to all this knowledge.
I have recently brought a secondhand 430 to use with my 550 & it seems to work fine . I think all of the EX guns will communicate with each other but some functions may not be available due to added features on the newer guns. When I get some free time,I' ll be able to use them properly.
