    Hi, I have the Canon 20D, and do mostly wedding and family portrait photography. I am wondering what I should use for a flash, and if a bracket is necessary. I want something that will be a good fill for outside photos, but also light up a photo in a dark dance hall. So my question is: What is a good flash for my 20D, and what should I use for a bracket, if one is necessary.

    Thanks, Lally

    I use my strobes hand-held. It's what I grew up on, and I can always quickly put the strobe right where I want it.

    I love my bracket. Took some getting used to, but it's been well worth the small (considerably) investment.:mrgreen:

    I have both a Quantum flash w/bracket and a standard 550 flash. For me, the 10D + battery grib + flash and bracket got too heavy and I stick with the flash and let my partner deal with the bracket :) We have had good results using it hand held as Pete does as well as just putting in on the hot shoe mount on the camera.
