Hello everyone! After shooting a gig this past weekend and noticing how difficult it was to shoot without a speedlight, i decided to buy a budget one. I've been eying the Yongnuo 560 for it's budget price and was wondering, is it possible to use it on the hotshoe of my 60D? I understand that it's not e-ttl. Is auto really that much of a necessity? I shoot mostly in manual mode anyways so that's why i'm asking. I'm more concern about the purchase since if i buy the 560, place it on my hotshoe, set the manual settings on the flash, it should be triggered to go off if i pressed the shutter button right?
Any tips would really help! I have roughly 100 dollars to spend at the moment.
