Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT

Canon has today introduced a new mid-range Speedlite to replace the Speedlite 430EX II.

The Speedlite 430EX III-RT which offers faster and silent power recycling, has a lens coverage range of 24mm to 105mm, or to 14mm via the built-in adapter, giving the user a variable light spread to work with. Plus, a maximum Guide Number of 43 at ISO 100 provides enough power to light subjects in a wide range of conditions, with the flexibility to work alongside additional flashes using the radio or optical remote control system. The Speedlite also features a new and enhanced illuminated dot matrix LCD display and a multi-control dial provides shortcuts to the main functionality. 

Photographers can use the Speedlite alongside Canon's existing radio or optical wireless flash control systems as a master or slave. Also compatible with cameras that feature an Integrated Speedlite Transmitter, including the EOS 760D and EOS 70D, the Speedlite can be used instantly as an off-camera flash with output and power controllable from the camera menu. 

Users can control up to five groups of RT flashes with up to 15 flashes per group, at distances of up to 30m away. Plus, the Speedlite can be controlled by Canon’s ST-E3-RT or Speedlite 600EX-RT units and it also features a bounce adapter. An included orange colour filter allows users to match or contrast the colour of the flash light with the light sources around them, and there's also an integrated catch-light panel. 

The Speedlite 430EX III-RT will be available from July 2015 with an SRP of £249.99.

Canon celebrates production of 110 million interchangeable EF lenses

As well as a new Speedlite, Canon's also celebrating the production of 110 million interchangeable EF lenses. Production of Canon’s signature interchangeable EF lens series, which now includes 71 models, began in 1987 at the Utsunomiya Plant, when the series was first introduced together with the EOS SLR camera system. Since then, the global demand for Canon lenses has continued to grow and production has since expanded to a total of four manufacturing bases.

Canon's also introduced quite a few World firsts such as the Ultrasonic Motor (USM) for use in lenses, Image Stabilizer (IS) technology, a multi-layered diffractive optical (DO) element and Subwavelength Structure Coating (SWC) anti-reflection technology. Plus, the EF 11-24mm f/4L USM launched in February of this year boasts a minimum focal length of 11 mm to achieve the world's widest angle of view.
