    Head down to your local camera store and see what they have.

    I recommend the Canon 430EX or the 580EX.

    According to Bestbuy.com, the following stores have the 430EX ($299.99) in stock.

    Atlanta (Midtown) GA
    1210 Caroline St NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
    Buckhead GA 2537 Piedmont Rd NE, Atlanta, GA 30324-3006
    Perimeter GA 1201 Hammond Dr NE, Atlanta, GA 30346

    And it seems that Bestbuy do not carry 580EX


    And according to Circuitcity.com

    The following store also have the 430EX (299.99).
    3637 Peachtree Road Northeast, Atlanta, GA 30319
    2971 Cobb Parkway, Atlanta, GA 30339
    1165 Perimeter Center West, Atlanta, GA 30338

    But 580EX is out of stock both online or in store.

    Or you can call all the Wolf camera stores in Atlanta and see if one of them have it in stock.

    Looks like there are more than 10 stores within 10miles of Atlanta GA
