I know the whole suggestion of buy good and pricey first instead of crappy then ending up just having to buy the quality product later on but idk... dont feel like it considering my circumstance.

I am going to get into off camera flash work so just bought some rf602s with 2 receivers. I will buy 1 yn-460II.

I want another flash that i will also use for OCF (obviously on manual) but that i can occasionally use on camera with ETTL to make my life easy if i need it. Im a firm believer in dont spend money (broke) so im trying to decide between the YN-467 and a Bower flash (http://www.overstock.c​om …eras/4335078/pr​oduct.html (external link))

any suggestions on which one would be great. recycling time is important but so is ettl accuracy and whatnot.

so yea, suggestions please (and please non suggesting i get a 430ex, 430exII, 580ex, or 580exII. thank you :) )

The YN-467 is pretty new and from what I have seen, a very good flash. I personally don't have one, but it seems good from demo photos I have seen. I have no experience with the Bower.

I do not have the YN-467, but, I do have other Yongnuo gear and I have found it to be reliable and extremely good value for money. The recycling time on my 460 is more than acceptable.

I subscribe to the start cheap and upgrade route. That way you know exactly what you need when you outgrow what you have.
