Hello all; I'm a Canadian in Canada, but please don't hold that against me! I want to buy the new Canon S5 IS with a Selphy CP 510 or 710 and a Canon EX Speedlite. I would drive to Buffalo or surrounding area to purchase.

I presently have the Canon S3 IS, but would like to upgrade because I can.

1. Can you recommend a Selphy model?

2. Can you recommend Speedlite model?

3. Can you recommend a retailer? I would even consider mail order if I they are trustworthy!

You will love your S5IS. Regarding your question about which flash model to get, I would suggest the 430EX. The 220ex is a bit wanting in performance - guide number too low, you may just as well stay with the onboard flash. The 580ex is quite a bit too much both in weight and size for the S5.

For mail order houses, consider either B&H or Beach Camera. I have had excellent experiences with both, and you will see many postings on these forums saying the same. Lots of bad eggs out there these days, but those two are ethical, reliable, professional, and competitive in price. They want repeat customers, and so they treat you like they want you to come back.

Hi docmoon; Beach doesn't ship to Canada any longer, B&H doesn't show the S5 IS on their site. Thanks for your help though!
