Canon Speedlite 430 II
I am looking to pick this up for $ 289.99 + tax = $ 330'ish. Reading reviews, it seems to be a pretty good flash for beginner/intermediate user. I'm looking to improve my photos and expand my limitations over the standard flash on my Rebel XSI. I'm wondering if this is a good price for the functions compared to 3rd party-type flashes since I don't know much about them. I don't want to spend more for the higher end 580 model as I don't think I'm quite ready for that one yet. Any comments or suggestions?
