First of all let me inform you of my current setup.
Im fairly new to flash and off camera photography however Im getting excited as to the possibilities. Right now I am using a very primitive set up.
about 2 minute recycle time and squeals like a pig. no joke. This is what I use. I get ok results from it. Cost about 12 bucks.
I also have a cheap 43" umbrella with stand, a reflector, and a wireless trigger that cost about $20.
The idea is a portable set up I can put I can power by batteries.
I have gathered $150-180 for funds.
I would like to use amazon that I can return things if need be, with less hassle.
I was originally thinking about getting a YN 565EX and calling it a day but perhaps you guys can think of a better way to spend my money.
I am using a 5D Mark II. I am not against using sync cords or any other means.
Thanks for your help.
Here is a starter:
perhaps 2 YN 560's and another wireless receiver + stand + Umbrella
this would give me more options and still be cheap.
I don't really know what I am doing here so feel free to jump in.
