It's not hard to do bounce flash with the 420EX, Linda. And once
you've done the bouncing thing, you will not be happy with a flash
that can't do so. A 220EX w/ off camera cord will bounce
(inconveniently) in a very small room, but it will not have enough
power to bounce in most situations.

I think you're right in that I realistically wouldn't be bouncing the 220EX.

I'm looking for a travel accessory. Perhaps the 220EX would work if the internal flash is not enough?

As for the 420EX (which I am certain is the preferable flash), I'm not sure how much bouncing I would do with candids. (Do you need a white ceiling or wall?)
Thanks for your response!
