If you're a beginner I'd sell it and get an E-TTL compatible flash unit that will meter automatically with your digital camera.

If you want to learn more about using the flash as a manual device, go to strobist.com.

Thank you! I will be sure to check out the website to see what advice they have. I am not sure what I want to do just yet. I actually have two of them...and two sunpak 522's... since the canon flashes won't work and I don't know how to properly use the the sunpaks, right now I'm just throwing light around, which is really making me angry since I am an "advanced" photography student in college. You would think they would teach us how to do this basic stuff... sadly it is all photoshop tutorials.

I might buy one of the flashes you recommended, but keep the big guy for when I get it all figured out. It is a nice flash, after all and I am determined to master the bugger (grins)
