I have a canon T2i DSLR but looking for a flash for it. I like the 430EX II and the features it has but the $299 price tag sucks. Is there one similar to it that i can use and still have pretty much the same features but WAY cheaper? Im just wanting a flash thats a heck of alot cheaper than that one if at all possible. not familiar with using flash or how to set it up when trying to take a picture with it or anything. im a novice and just starting out so something more automatic would be cool but maybe something manual i guess will work to. Still trying to learn my camera and how to shoot in Manual mode. Any ideas on a good flash would be great. The TTL feature in the 430EX II is an awesome feature. I do like the fact i can slave it if need be or use it off camera. I have seen the 270EX and the 320EX but not sure how good they are.
