    Canon Flash Crew v.school me

    I want a flash for my XTI since the onboard flash sucks so hard. Is the 430EX sufficient for just general indoor protog, or will I regret not getting the 580?

    430 is a great flash. cheap, too. MUCHO better than the on-camera flash, that's for sure.

    The 230 or whatever sucks right, not worth it?

    while we have a flash thread, i'm thinking of picking up a vivitar 285v or something similar..anything else i should consider as a 2nd flash? This will go with triggers once I finally get around to getting those.

    430's are nice and will probably be fine for your needs.

    Yes the 430 is sufficient. The 580 is only worth it for that ability to play master with other flashes, in my opinion.
