I'm new to this forum and to the Canon EOS digital system and would like a little help from my new friends...
Due to theft, I'm converting to the Canon digital format specifically the 20D. The previous system was a Minolta Maxxum 7, with various lenses, which I really enjoyed.
The one benefit to the M7 was it's wireless flash technology without the use of a transmitter. Meaning, I could use the pop-up flash on the body to work the main flash a few meters away.
With the Canon 20D, I've realized that this is only possible with the transmitter (ST-E2) and a compatible flash such as the new 580EX (which I have ordered).
Now, my question is: Do I buy the transmitter for $300 CDN or buy a second 580EX for an extra $200 CDN. If I bought the transmitter, the extra $200 saved could go towards other toys... But with the second Speedlite, I could increase my lighting capabilities. What would you do? Money really isn't the issue as this is insurance proceeds.
Thanks for you help people!!
