    Your good with any flash. Older nikon film flashes are actually a favorite among canon users. I suggest you look for vivitar 285's, sunpak 383's, and speedlight sb-26/28's

    It all depends on how you can (or want to) fire and control the flash.

    You can stick to the Canon system and get master and slave units. This will allow you to keep E-TTL (auto flash metering). It isn't cheap though.

    You could use just about any flash with a wireless radio remote or even a PC cable connection. You would have to figure out the flash power and exposure settings yourself though.
