    I have a Canon Digital Rebel, and was wondering your thoughts on flashes. Just looking to do basic indoor pictures, maybe a few night-time shots (nothing fancy, portrait) with the standerd lens, 18-35. I was leaning towards the 420 EX Canon, but was wondering if there were any cheaper alternatives.........

    Thanks!

    If it's not important to you to have a dedicated flash you could go with a Vivitar 285. These are a good solid unit that last forever. You can pick them up for a good price on Ebay.

    Forgot to mention, I've had mine for 25+ years now and it still works great. I use it on a Canon A2 and my Bronica.

    Go with the 420ex. The bounce alone makes it worth it.
