I have been shooting with my 30D along with 35mm f1.4 L lenses. It's gotten me some amazing natural lighting results at wedding events but I do need to get a flash for backup reasons. My lenses is WIDE ANGLE so the built in flash on my 30D isn't big enough - what flash system should I buy to attach on my camera? Also, I want to soften it - instead of having the harsh flash lighting - what pocket bouncer should I get to go onto that flash device?

Thanks - I need help!:o

The flash forum would probably get you better results.

I've got both the 430EX and the 580EX and both are great for my needs. The 580EX gives you the ability to trigger up to 4 slave flashes optically (i.e. you need line of sight) and has a slightly quicker recharge rate and guide number than the 430EX. The 430EX can only be a slave or used as a single flash unit and cannot be used to trigger other flashes.

Both flashes will allow you to angle the head to bounce the flash off walls or ceiling to provide some diffusing.
