Default Flash For Canon DSLR's

Hello. I've rekindled my passion for photography & need help catching-up after 15 yr.s. Throw-back from 35MM days. I'm buying new equipment as needed and need help w/ a new flash for my T3i. I HAVE decided on the Neewer brand flashes, but need guidance. Features I want: E-TTL, some manual control, auto zoom function (on or off), change flash power (1/1-1/128) possibly, wireless "slave" & of course budget conscience... I'm looking at 3 possible units: TT660II, a 680 & VK750. All within my budget. There are so many variants in each of these and am having a "fit" deciding. Don't want to spend more than $75.00. I just never used flash much before, and need your input please. Thanks, LeRoy

To my knowledge you won't find much of a flash unit for $75. A word to the wise: I own two Canon 580 EXII flash units and they both seem to have problems maintaining contact with the hot shoe on the 7D.
Sony a6000 w/24mm 1.8, Canon 7D ll w/400mm 5.6, Canon 7D w/100mm macro, Canon 580 EX ll and 600-Rt Flash, Panasonic Lumix LF1

Wow, $125 dollars for what looks/sounds like an entirely respectable flash.
Thanks for that WCKSer!
