Default Flash for D300 (or rebel)

Hi all

Does anyone have some ideas about what flash to buy for the Canon 300d?
Should I go for canon flash or for a less expensive unit from another brand?

Thanks a lot

HMM - If you are looking for a reasonably priced flash, then the 550EX is out of the question, but it is a very nifty flash. The 420EX is quite a bit lighter and cheaper and puts out almost as much light but without all the bells and whistles. Plus if you ever upgrade to the 550EX later on, the 420EX can be used as a slave flash so it won't be wasted. Both flashes have zoom and bounce heads. Ok, now if you don't necessarily want a Canon flash, I have used a few good flashes made by Sunpak - the PZ5000AF or PZ4000AF, or if you don't need a zoom head there's the 433AF. I have used most of them with a few battery packs made by Sunpak and Quantum. Hope this helps.

Get the Sigma 500 DG SUPER if you want to give yourself a treat.
