    hmm, there are threads you can search for and for a $200 budget, you don't have much choices. Go for third party. Nissin and yongnuo are 2 examples.

    The most suitable flash will be the flash from canon. But none of them are at $100-$200.

    So either you save up, or go for 3rd party flash like mentioned, YongNuo (from China) or Nissin.
    The best things in life are free.

    Not sure about Canon flashes, you can check the canon price list in the price list section of this forum.

    and Nissin quality is good, in fact Nissin Di866 is better than Nikon SB-900, but its over your budget too. For your budget Di622 would be ok.

    All the flashes are suitable, they are Canon flashes after all. What you want to get depends on your budget

    So I guess there are no restrictions at all for flash guns.

    try the B&S section. I bought a YN 465 for just $85. I think this is all you can afford with your tight budget! Happy hunting man!

    The restriction comes with the flash gun. Not all can swivel the head in the same way, the GN is different .. decide what you need and what you can afford.

    I kinda need a very basic one, one that can bounce light to the ceiling so that flash is not hit directly on the subject so I guess a Di622 is good enough.

    Saw your post at BnS, do note that the one you need is the Canon mount, check if its a Canon or Nikon mount before you buy from the seller

    At $200, your choices are limited to Nissin Di622, Yongnuo and Tumax. I am not sure if Metz flashes are within your budget.

    My vote goes to Nissin Di622.

    well not really sure bout that but someone should do a test between those two high end flashes. but for budget wise, the nissin counter part really bang for the bucks
