Hello all,

just got a Canon SX50. I am very much a newbie when it comes to photography. I'll be using 'auto', as I learn. Don't seem to be havng much with searches. Any flashes that will work with the SX 50, other than spending $200 plus for Canon speedlites? As in the $50 range. Nothing fancy. Just one that will slave with the camera... Thanks & Merry Christmas

The camera's internal flash works pretty well and it is free. Just flip it up with your fingernail when you want to use flash. Great for fill light, not long range. I use it in P-mode which is much more versatile than auto.

I suppose the Canon speedlites are so expensive 'cause of the name/reputation. More alternatives see to be popping up almost every day.
