    I have had my 20D for about 6 months now and I love everything about this camera. I do primarily outdoor work and candid shots. Recently I found myself at an indoor wedding as a guest and noticed that the hired photographer was missing some key moments so I pulled out my camera and did some shots as the wedding party was coming down the isle, reception photos, and so on. Upon looking at the photos I was dismayed at the distance the flash was hitting at.

    Does anyone have a good suggestion for a flash for the digital. I was told that the flash had to be a special sort to work with the digital camera, but doing most of my work outside I wasnt really paying attention to the sales person during his sphele.

    Thanks a bunch,
    Islair

    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Almost any flash will work with a 20D, but if you want all the whiz-bang features you probably need a Canon flash. I have a Canon 550EX. It does a good job; it's the only flash I've tried with the 20D. I like the high speed flash sync feature a lot. I think the new version is the 580EX.
