    Flash

    I've been asked to do the events photography. I realised that I will need to get a flash for my Canon 450D digital camera.

    Would 580exII is good to go in a long term? If so, do you know any good bargains to purchase from (in australia)?

    I also thinking of getting the trigger thingy where you can take off the flash and still use it while taking photos. But I would to know if its worth it, or its not much difference?

    Thanks

    The 580ex ii is an excellent flash and will also act as a flash commander for off camera flash which will allow you to shoot off camera e-ttl flash when combined with another 580 or 430.

    I do not know about price in Aus since I bought mine off the web from digtal rev.

    Yep the 580EXII is the way to go.

    I bought mine from a Hong Kong sellar, can't remember what I paid now, but was much cheaper than Aus back then.
