Alternative Flash Guns

As you may know speedlites or speedlights are expensive and they seem to be about 20% more so than last year.  Check out the price rises on Camera Price Buster

You may have tried some on eBay but found them to be lacking.  There some entry level alternatives from reputable companies that may be worth a look at these for Canons but there are Nikon, Olympus and Panasonic too.

Metz 36 C-2 Flashgun

Metz 36 AF-5 Flashgun - Canon Fit




As i haven't seen them i can't guarantee how they work but they are entry level and it would be worth investigating.  Although I would still recommend saving up and buying a Canon 580exii or 430exii, or a Nikon SB900 or SB700 but these are £340 and £200!
