Hi, I don't have much experience in photography especially flash photography.
I have now a canon 430EX II and would like to explore some off camera flash. I do have 50D and thinking if I should get 550EX as a master. I'd like to do some portraits with it mostly along with 28-75mm. (I can get 550EX for ~$250)
I'm not sure how much more info you need to help me out but should I go for 550EX or wait for a little bit for 580/580EX II?
Another option I can also see is another 430EX II and buy some cheap flash triggers like cactus/CTR-301P. (I'd like to keep it simple so i picked these 2 for transmitter/receiver with no additional cords/cables)
I've done some research between 430EX II and 550EX but not did not find what I'm looking for. Will I be somewhat downgrading if I get 550EX?
Please help. Thanks in advance.
