Im using Canon 1000D and am looking for a flash -- main purpose is for indoor parties or maybe even macro shots.
a friend recommended the Yong Nuo 465 Flash. What attracted me was the price ($135) and the picture quality taken with the flash.
However, another friend was against such third party flashes and said it could damage the camera more (stating that all external flashes actually damage the system but third party ones damage more than Canon make) and said it would be wiser to get a Canon Flash instead.
Is this true?
What do you all think? Any advice and opinions are greatly appreciated, thank you.
