I am making my list for Santa... and I want to start learning how to use a speedlite. I have been looking at the 430 EX II for canon but I found this off brand one that gets pretty ok reviews. What do you experienced mamas think? My thought is that I would like to upgrade in a year or two and I don't want to buy an expensive flash that won't fit whatever I upgrade to. KWIM?
Also, my mom is looking for gift ideas for me in the $50-100 range. Any must have accessories in that price range?
