Beginner flash set up for 5D MkII
Thanks Donald, thats really useful.
I dont shoot video, so thats not a consideration.
Sounds like the 430EX II is for me, using a wired, coiled trigger. I see the canon version is £50+ which seems a lot, but there are 3 rd party versions for less than half this amount. I imagine I will be hand holding the flash, or placed nearby, so wouldn't need anything over a couple of meters (and dont have lightstands to worry about!)
