Im looking for a flashgun to use with for close-up photography but to also to use for some portrait shots. It must have the ability to use as a strobe and unfortunately I cant justify the 580ex. The 2 I am looking at are the Sigma EF530 DG Super & the Canon 430 ex ii. My preference would be the Canon due to compatailty and being able to change settings on the camera, however I have read that this does not have a strobe facility.

Get yourself a used 550EX for less than the cost of a 430EX. It has strobe as well.
could I simulate a strobe on the 430EX ii by firing it manually
Perhaps an older sigma model, my Sigma EF500 DG Super is able to fire up to 100hz down to 1/128th power for a count of n flashes.
I used it to get this spinning & swinging garden ornament.
What are you hoping to manually flash in how many different positions without flash unit or subject exposure burn out?
or something like this fitted to any flash unit
