    hey everyone, i've got a quickie;
    we ordered a pair of those cactus triggers just for fun to see how they work out and they're marvelous! so i'm going to order them for me and seeing as i want to do everything from portraits to action photography (on an basic - intermediate level) which flash guns on ebay can i order with the triggers... which flash is the cheapest and offers full manual control and doesn't like turn off or stop working in a couple of months..

    For low budget type case, Vivitar 285HV is a good choice.

    A Vivitar 285 pricey? That is about the lowest priced flash on the market. In the US they are available around $90... an equivalent Nikon or Canon flash is at least 3 times more!

    BTW, if you bought the V2s models of Cactus triggers, did you know that they are easy to modify for some incredible distance increases?
