Camera: Nikon d3000 My plan was to get an SB-600 as my first flash (have some gift cards, would probably pay out of pocket 130 bucks). As I was talking to a buddy of mine who is into strobist shots and been shooting for a bit, he recommended a yn460 ( YN-460 II Flash Speedlite for Canon Nikon Pentax Camera - eBay (item 160454436594 end time Aug-09-10 03:04:11 PDT) ) or the yn560 ( YN-560 Flash Speedlite for Nikon D3 D2X D2H D1H D1X - eBay (item 180531283973 end time Aug-09-10 01:52:45 PDT) ). Both are Manual flashes, no TTL. I mainly wanted a flash for some portrait work, fill flash and occasionally using it in low light night photography off camera. With the d3000, for off camera flash, I would be stuck using triggers for either one so that's not an issue. I guess my question is, is it worth saving 100 bucks for a cheaper brand flash (one that has pretty good reviews) and losing TTL, or spending the extra money and not having to worry about setting my flash every single time on camera when taking pictures at indoor family events? Any thoughts or experiences? How difficult is it working with manual flashes, is it something that is easily learned?
