all the EX Series speedlights are compatible. there are also 3rd party ones like metz, sigma etc.
get one with a bounce head like the 420 or 550 rather than a fixed head one.

I would recommend the 420EX over any other Speedlites, because
(1) It's a Original Canon. No future compability problems.
(2) It covers all the 7 focusing points of the 300D for focus assist. 550EX only covers the 5 horizontal ones (it's designed for the 45-point focusing of EOS 1-series instead) and 3rd party flashes cover only the center AF point.
(3) It's good enough for most amateurs and can get one 2nd hand for less than $300.
