First external flash?
Mar 24, 2013

Hello!

I have a Canon EOS 60D and a Fujifilm FinePix X100. I mainly shoot portraits of friends and family, as well as my dog (using a 50mm f/1.2L and a 24-70 f/2.8L), and some street and landscape with my X100. I'm looking into buying my first external flash (would love a multi-flash setup later), and would like some advice on which one to get. This is mainly for my 60D and portrait/dog photography, but compatibility with my X100 would be nice as well. I don't mind paying more for more features, but if a flash has features I'm never going to use (e.g. Speedlite 600EX-RT?), I'd rather spend my money elsewhere (or on several flash units).

So: What should I look for? Which one? Any 'must have' accessories?

Thanks!
