Re: Older 430 EX (not 430 EX II) with 6D

msowsun is correct. I have several flashes - one of which is an ancient 420EX (not II)! And it functions just fine.

The functions that don't exist are merely not selectable items - and that old flash has very little in the way of settings! But, the camera completely recognizes it and it works just fine.

Sometimes it's nice to have a smaller flash. So save your money and consider what you're going to want moving forward. You certainly aren't handicapped with your flash - it's a very good speedlite.

Enjoy your camera, it's amazing!
