I own a 60D and am going to get a flash for it. i've never used external flashes so the whole thing is pretty new and undiscovered. My first choiche was canon 430 ex ii, so that I can be sure it it perfectrly matches my camera. now I've found out that I can use any other simple manual flash as external flash as my pop up flash would be the only "trigger", ,y camera doesn't have an IR remote controller for axternal flashes.
So what would be the advantages of a canon speedlite over a sevond party cheaper flash?
Sorry for my bad English, hope you understand what I mean
