    hey guys,

    Ok I almost threw my New Rebel Xs in the wall because the flash is driving me mad. taing forever to come up andruining my photos. I bought a low quality sunpak flash and it fires once in 5 photos (even if the ready light is opened) and it takes forever to reload... and built in flash well.....

    I'll probably be buying my flash on e-bay... (or other suggestions for best price....)

    wich do I choose.

    Is that about the equivalent of a Nikon SB-600?

    Whatever you do. Do not Buy a Phoenix flash or anything that looks like it. A buddy of mine bought one due to its price and it stopped working on his first shoot. There is no way to send it to the manufacture because its made in some sweatshop in china. Not to mention the overall piece of crap it was. Promaster makes a good flash. I use Promaster and had been delighted at the quality and control to which it offers. A fully motorized zoom makes life fun and easy. Check them out.
