Well the trip to Costa Rica is well in the planning and I now have to start thinking of my equipment.
I have never experienced rain forest/jungle but I realise that the light conditions may well be variable.
I heard of people using flash to enhance their images under these conditions. Now I'm not a flash user and it will be a steep learning curve.
So the question is, do I need to take one and if so what are the recommendation for a speedlite? I am not prepared to pay Canon prices as the purchase would have a limited use after the holiday.
Oh just to add this is a "holiday" to CR with some birding as and when it evolves as against a full-on birding holiday.
My equipment will be my Canon 550D and a 100-400mm IS lens plus my Sony RX100.
Thanks in advance
