Hi guys! I'm planning to go into flashes after getting my DSLR for a year now. Can anyone advise me on whether I should get the Canon 430 EX II or the Nissin Ni866? The prices of both are almost the same.
From what I've read, Nissin, being a third party brand, might have some compatibility issues but on the other hand it is as good as the Canon's top grade flash, the 580 EX II?
Some just swear by using the Canon one for the reliability. So which one would you guys recommend?
Also, what books are good for learning the flash as I know nuts about it! Esp with the terms ETTL and stuff like that.
Thanks in advance!
