Yatta, my 430EX II arrived! One pic inside!

My 430EX II arrived on Saturday so yesterday, with the batteries fully charged, I tried to get a handle on it!

First I have to say that I am really impressed. The impact on my indoor photos is huge. I knew there would be a difference but I didn’t believe it would be so big.

Since I do not want to upload photos of my friends I called in my official external associate: a stray kitten. They will do anything if milk is involved!

I do not embed it as it is pretty big, a 100% crop:

As a photo it isn’t anything special but do you detect any tragic mistake in the way I used the flash? I set it to overxpose by 1⅓ EV and bounce it behind and a bit sideways of me on white wall.

My 5 cents: turn off Highlight Tone Priority!
