Hi Guys,

I am looking at getting a flash for use with my KS2. Would only be occasional use. But a friend of mine is getting married soon, so would be used there. I like to try to get some good shots that the wedding photographer might not catch and then give them to the happy couple.

Which of these would be a good budget buy? As i am on a tight budget at the moment.

I'm leaning towards the 585 or the 660. All help greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

Flash advice please.

I'll chuck in a vote for the Shanny Pentax model, if you're in a budget.

Nigel's your man here though :thumb:

Of the 3 you have chosen only the first one offers TTL. The other two are just manual.
The model Richard added also offers TTL.

So, it really depends on if you want this or not.

TTL is a really useful addition for occasional use, especially at events like weddings, where conditions change and you want to spend time enjoying yourself rather than fiddling with settings.
