p.1 #1 · Off camera flash


Hello all,

I am getting ready to buy my first off camera flash and I know NOTHING about them. I am shooting a Canon 40D. Can anyone recommend a model??

Thanks!!

Depends on your budget. Since you are just starting out, get one with E-TTL compatibility so that you don't have to manually set the flash settings. The best bang for the buck is a Yongnuo YN 565EX which is their version of the Canon 580 II and comes new for $150 or so. Your 40D does not have a wireless flash trigger so you will also need a ST-E2 (not sure it is compatible with the YN 565EX though). I do not know if Yongnuo has a wireless trigger system.

If you want to do much better, the latest Canon 600 EX with a partnering ST-E3 for radio communications rather than just line of sight. This combo will be a lot more expensive.
