    Please let me know if you have any reviews on this Flash. I did a search on this site but couldn't find anything. Or maybe you have another suggestion for a Flash for my Canon XTi. I would like to stay under $100.

    Also, Is this a good starter lens? It has good reviews on B&H. I want to beable to get better indoor photos.

    I cant tell you much on the flash... but the Canon 50 is a good lens for getting indoor shots with or without flash....

    Why not a Canon speedlite?

    A Canon Speedlite would be a good choice, but they are quite a bit more expensive. This may be one of those things where if you did buy the cheaper off-brand model, you would eventually want to upgrade anyway...so it might be cheaper in the long run to just go with the Canon...but that's up to you.

    Sunpak is a respectable name, so I assume the flash would be OK but I don't know about that model in particular.

    You can't go wrong with the 50mm F1.8...it's cheap and light but the optics are great...and you can't beat the price.

    I love that lens! it's been a really good one for me and the f/1.8 comes in really handy (especially for indoor stuff) I heard some of my friends talking about how the focus is sometimes a little off with that lens but i've never had a problem.

    I don't know about the flash your looking at but is it dedicated? if not i would recomend one that works specifically with canon cameras.

    The Sunpak 433 AF is a decent flash. I have a few 383 manual flashes that I use for off camera fill at concerts. I believe the 433 is the TTL version of my 383's. I don't like the fact they don't have a zoom head. This helps give your flash more range than the non-zoom versions. Another fact when comparing to my Nikon SB-80's and SB-800's the build quality is very cheap. Thin plastic and plastic hotshoe's are my major complaints.
