Hello,

I know that this is an age old question that probably been asked many times before. I know that the 580 EX II is the best flash out there for the Canon cameras. Unfortunately I am still on a budget and even a used 430 EX is kind of high. I have done a little research and have read a bit about the opteka EF-600 as a budget friendly flash does anyone have experience with one? now please I am aware that I get what I pay for, but really ppl.. $200 for a used 430 EX is still too much for my budget right now.

Also have read a bit about the NISSIN Di622.. but am a little more wary of that one.


Thanks.. and I have really enjoyed this site and forums.

I'm not sure I have enough posts to welcome you, but welcome! :)
I'm not into the small flashes myself, just traded away my own 430EXII for a set of skyports.
But, I'm a frequent reader of strobist.com and this one got my attention if I'm ever going
down the small flash route again; http://www.mpex.com/br​owse.cfm/4,14648.html (external link)

Syncs with anything, and that makes it budget in my eyes. :)

if $200 is too much consider a Yongnuo ETTL flash like the YN465, ETTL, manual controls, etc. - $65
