Thanks for all the feedback. It isn't that I don't know how to use ETTL, (although some of the links were helpful) but just that I find more often that not that I can get the look I want and more consistently in manual than in ETTL. That being said, I do believe I am going to keep my 430exII and try to save up for the lens. I think it will be a while before I need a second flash for the things I shoot.

Thanks!


Photography is just a hobby for me.

Franz Kafka (d.1924) not Richard Prior (b.1940). It was a widely known and oft-quoted aphorism decades before Prior's birth. The quote is possibly Kafka's interpretation of something from Gustav Flaubert's scandalous 1857 novel 'Madame Bovary', or conceivably by Guy de Maupassant - a Flaubert protegé. Definitely European in origin though.

Irrespective, it's a very sound principle indeed. Money for example (something of which I have too little personal experience :cry:) .............. or a working ETTL flash which can also be used in Manual if preferred. ;)

Well, I can only go by what I have personally heard :lol:. Those other folks were well before my time.

You're more than welcome. And, yes, I DO know that feeling only too well. :cry:
