I realize that there are a ton of these threads out there, but even though I've been reading all the review I can find, I still can't really figure out which flash to go with. Budget is a definite factor here, since I won't be using the flash too often. I've narrowed it down to:
Now, there are two main things I'll be using them for:
- Portraits and such taken in clubs where it is usually very dark
- Macro photography where the built in flash is way too direct and tends to overexaggerate shadows and blow highlights
The question is, is there any reason to not just spring for the cheapest one? Do the more expensive flashes (or just the Di622 for that matter) provide anything useful for these purposes, that the cheaper ones cannot?
