Can anyone recommend a good article on flash usage?
Apr 11, 2013

I have never really got flash. I now have a Canon 5D3 which has no built in flash I have a 550 ex. And a 420ex ....so quite old.

i know they work with the 5D3, but with limitations.

I harrdly evver use flash but there are occasions when it is useful. So  how do I get the best out of this set up without having to spend out on new kit that I know will not get a lot of use?

thanks for tips
