    Speed Light 580 $400
    Viv 285 $90

    I have the money to shell out for the speed light, but I could be used on something else if I purchase the viv. I shoot a 30 D, and this is my first flash.

    Opinions?

    depends on how you want to use it and how much you know about flashes. if its going to be off camera triggered by pocket wizards, theres no point in the canon. if its going to be on camera or triggered by an st-e2, get a canon

    if you know how to control the flash manuall to get the exposure you want and have time to do it, get the viv


    or get both, a 430 and viv for more creative freedom
