Default Yongnuo YN-465

Is it a good on camera flash? I'm on a tight budget and I need a flash to shoot at a party.

Any info would be appreciated, other suggestions would be also great.

Thanks

Ishay-

It is a fairly good economy external flash. The Y-N 467 has more features, and works a bit better IMO.

So what would be a safer bet, a YN467 or the Nissin Di622?

I think that the Nissin Di622 is the better build. I own both the Nissin Di622 and the Y-N 467. However, if economy is the watch word here and the flash is only going to get light duty, you could get by with a $50 Y-N 460.

the di622 has a better guide number it does feel a solid piece of kit and its very easy to use. thats my opinion from owning one.
