    I need a new flash... but don't really want to spend a lot of money. I am taking the pictures for her wedding - a low key event. I pulled out my old 35mm Nikons - my old Vivitar 285 flash has given up the ghost. Any suggestions - the flash will probably be used this one time and then become a closet dweller until the next rare time I might take some 35mm photos.

    I would either go cheap,

    with a Sunpak or something or go for one that would be compatible with a Nikon digital camera like the SB600. You will probably go digital in the future.

    my nikon sb80 top of the line when i bought it.i think the new sb800d is basicly the same light.will sit in the closet for weeks,months at a time but when i need it its there.i feel a good quality flash is as important as any part of your equipment collection.i also have a mid model and a cheap flash.guess which one i go to first....
