    $330, but it's kinda out of stock at this moment. I managed to get mine recently, but the last piece at AP was taken by another clubsnapper who seems to be very thrilled to get it.

    I do NOT recommend the 420ex or 380ex for the EOS 300 series because these flashes have no controls on the flash itself. If you want to control the flash output, you will need to set it on the camera body. BUT the 300 series DO NOT HAVE THESE CONTROLS. What this means is that the flash is limited to only fully auto mode. Anyway, for the price of a 420ex, you can get the Sigma 500 DG Super, which has all the controls that you will need.

    But I think you should read up if it is fully compatible. The DG series is "optimised" for digital cameras, so although it SHOULD work with film bodies, I can't guarantee it.

    I frankly think the 420EX is more then sufficient for the 300V.

    go 4 the 420EX

    (anyway, whats there to control with a eos300?? hehe~)

    but serious. apart from the above tongue-in-cheek, go 4 the 420EX. if u want even more fuss free stuff, go for 380EX. last time this small but good flash provided all the light i needed when shooting events. and its cheaper too! but discontinued
