    Post Advice on Canon Flashes

    Hi newbie here
    Currently I'm considering to get myself a flash (realised it's pretty impt for indoor shots)
    i read that there are a few models such as 430EX, 550EX, 580EX, etc (pls list if there are any more)

    May i know what's the difference between these models?
    I was thinking of getting a 580EX but I'm not a pro or a freelancer, just getting started in photography as an interest, thought that it would be an overkill to get such an expensive end. :P

    Pls advice

    as a hobbyist like yourself - if u want some sample pictures taken with the 430EX, just PM me and i'll send u a couple.

    i find that an external flash is almost essential for sub-lit indoor shots.

    If money allows, get the 580EX. I upgraded to this from 420EX and have not regretted since.
