    Ok so im looking to buy a cheap flash for now. I can only afford under $120.00 right now. So I was lookng at the YN-467 Flash Speedlite. Any others that are in this price range? I will only be using it to practice and get familiar with using flash. I plan on getting a better lense a long the road, but for now I need something to just "play around with." Anyone used this flash?

    It's a rather weak flash.

    Op, there's a member, by the name of Tee, who is selling a sb600. I would scrounge up a couple of bucks more. You would be more satisfied with that than the sb400 or the yn. Check out the market place.
