Can 550 EX be used as a master for a 430 EX II Speedlite?

Is it possible to use older Canon 550 EX as a master for newer 430 EX II (2)?

 

Could not find this answer anywhere on the net.

 

Thanx a lot. niko

Yes, the 550EX can be used as a master for a 430EX II. 

 

All settings and changes must be done on the flash itself because the 550EX is an older design that predates newer cameras that have a built-in flash menu.

 

You can download the instuction manual here: Speedlite 550EX Instruction Manual
