Tried the diffuser yesterday and it sucked. You have to be really close for it to take effect. I need to start looking into speedlights

Thanks

Haven't shopped for speedlights/flashes for a while, but be sure you get one with a head that can rotate/point up that way you can bounce it off the ceiling.  It's the easiest way to get nice, evenly lit indoor pictures.  Also, many flashes come with a snap on diffuser, that's all I ever use.  I tried out some sort of globe diffuser (can't remember the name), and couldn't see enough of a difference to justify the extra size/time/weight over the snap on diffuser that stays on my flash all the time.

Good luck!
