    Try looking at the 2H shops if they carry older flash units.

    I got a small SB30 which i use quite often... It's light, small and suitable for normal portrait with mid-zoom or for macro..

    I bought it cheap at CP at abt 100 as my friend bought with me when it was just launched... i think CP sell abt 130 these days...

    Huggable got an Emoblitz DS328AZ at S$55, the flash can tilt and swivel. Supports dumb hotshoe (N mode), or slave mode, 1 or 2 flashes.
