Re: Best budget flash

Agreed. I wouldn't spend any money on a flash that cannot swivel. With on-camera flash, you'll want to utilize bounced flash whenever you have an appropriate wall or ceiling available (unless you just need some subtle fill).

Knowing what camera you have is important to knowing what flash to get. I would not advise the Nikon SB400 or any third party flash. The SB400 cannot swivel and therefore you lose half it's ability. Unless you're a complete novice and just frontlight your subject it's a mistake. It is the only flash made by Nikon that is not Creative Lighting System compatible like the rest of the Nikon lineup.

If you can find a new SB600, it would be the best bargain out there. If not, the SB700 is the cheapest flash I'd entertain, especially if you intend to use it in TTL BL mode and CLS.
