Flash for Ds

Hi

I know very little about flashes and hotshoes etc and hence after some advice. Can anyone recommend a good 'budget' flash for the Ds. and/or a good site or tutorial where I can learn about them.

Mostly after it for a mix of night macro (frogs) and indoor stuff.

I am thinking tilt is a must for indoor, swivel would be nice, it would also be good if I could put a diffuser on it (even a univeral one - I dont know how "universal" they are), age of the model is irrelevant .

Also has anyone used macro ring lights or flashes (I have seen a few sites showing how to make them, which wouldn't be problem, just unsure as to whether to bother)

I know that I have to check the trigger voltage such as at Botzilla http://www.botzilla.com/photo/strobeVolts.html

Is the hotshoe mount universal? Do I need a flash with a pentax hotshoe mount?

Regards & Thanks
Phil
