    If I wanted to get into "speedlights", what would I get for my camera.

    Depends on your budget, if you can afford the Canon 580EX then go for it.

    I can't drop that much on a flash so I went with the Promaster 7500EDF, which has a lot of what the 580EX has.

    I read (as I always do) about it so I'd know what to expect and its been that much and more. If you're doing pro work that needs fasted recycling and dependability during long shoots when don't skimp out - go for the 580ex; but if you're learning lighting on and off camera, there's little about that Promaster that will limit you, and it sells here for 240-250$ in a store.

    Budget, how are you planning to shoot off camera, and what type of photography are you looking for?

    I recommend that everyone have at least one TTL enabled speedlight that they can use on camera if needed, but if it's strictly an off camera flash, you could purchase something like a LumoPro 120 for $120 and have a flash that will readily compete with a 580EX II for purely manual off camera work.
