    Hey all. Looking for a flash for full light. Budget is pretty tight. Something within the range of $50-80 would be best if possible. Flash can be manual. That's no problem with me but I'd like something fairly reliable if it's possible. I'd also like an af illuminator. Is this goal realistic? And if so which models should I be looking at? If not how much should my range be? It'll be going on a canon t1i

    Yongnou's and Vivitars seem to be popular for low end flashes..... like the Yongnuo 560.. or the Vivitar 285. At that price.. you are only going to get manual... they seem to be reliable. Af illuminator is a different story.. good luck with that one at this price range.

    Yngnuo 460II is manual, the Yngnuo 468 has Ettl and is fairly cheap and i think it's an awesome flash. Good deals on Ebay...
