    I've got a wedding coming up in May and I know already that my pop-up flash just won't cut it. I've been reading all sorts of good things about the SB-600 but right now it's kind of out of my price range. Does anyone have any recommendations for another good iTTL flash for a Nikon D40 for maybe a few bucks cheaper?

    Thanks

    Have you considered just renting an SB-800 for the weekend? I would rent it for a few days before just to get use to it, but that would be the most cost effective option.

    I would second the renting! The 800 is amazing and after using it you will somehow find the money to buy it. :)

    For iTTL capability you really want a Nikon SB-600 or SB-800. The SB-400 works too but is only a little better than the onboard flash.
