After determing that the onboard flash on my G9 is dismal at best, I having been hunting for a used flash to mount on the hotshoe. I want a flash that I can later use as a separate slave with the remote transmitter. This because when money permits, I intend to buy something newer greater better faster!! maybe a 430EX or 1 580EX II (although it is rather large)
Just wondering if any of you are using a 380EX with your G9 and how well it works? Is it a big improvement over the onboard? I like bouncing off the ceiling to soften the lighting.
The reason I ask about the 380 is because I found a used one in excellent condition on Craigslist for $150. How does this sound? I am going to look at it very soon and want to be armed with accurate info.
Anything special I should check on it? I am going to bring my G9 so I can try it out.
Thanks for the help, you wonderful techie camera gurus !:p:p
