Next logical purchase for T1I: flash or battery grip?
Sep 21, 2009

I just wanted to get people's opinion on the next purchase I should make.... I've already bought a couple of lens for my T1I (canon 50mm f/1.8 and Tamron 18-200) so I am contemplating on my next purchase. Should I get a 430ex flash or the BG-E5 battery grip? I am leaning towards the battery grip since it gives me additional battery life as well as making the camera a little bit more grippable.... I just like the feel of the extended battery grip... it's also half the price of a 430ex flash. However, I've been reading that having a nice flash unit is a necessity as well.... what do you guys think? Thanks for reading.
