    I'm building my first off camera lighting setup. Strobist has been great reading for me and I'm basing most of my purchases off of his recommendations. Here's what I have so far:

    430EX
    Cactus triggers
    LumoPro LP604 5-Section 6ft Stand
    LumoPro LP679 Umbrella Swivel

    I need an umbrella as well, but I'm not sure if I need the 43" collapsible or a 45" one piece. What do you guys recommend? Also any comments on the other pieces are appreciated, I'm going for value for my money here and I think I'm getting it but if you have some suggestions feel free. I'm sure I'll add more flashes and maybe upgrade to Pocket Wizards some day but this should be plenty for the initial learning curve.

    i went with the 43 because of how small it folds.
