Hi all So, i need a flash for my GF1. The main reason for buying it is for macro, but obviously i would like to use it for general purpose shooting. Heres an example of what my canon FD 50mm 3.5 macro lens can do with tubes and a flash (not my image) - beautiful isnt it! source - GF1 + Canon FD 50mm f/3.5 Macro - Field Test - The GetDPI Photography Forums Firstly i have no idea what so ever about flashes! Can i ask: What does TTL mean? What sets them apart / what should i be looking out for with flashes? I imagine the recycle time is the shot to shot flash time? i have the tubes, but no flash. obviously when using extension tubes its quite difficult to get enough light for high shutter speeds, so a flash is gonna help a lot. There are the popular flashes like the FL-14 and metz ones, but they like £150! which seems a lot (to me) for a flash (whats so good about them exactly? id like to know) and it is more than i want to spend. So have you got any recommendations for a good inexpensive flash? ive seen ones like this - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/...essories_CameraFlashUnits_JN&hash=item27adae8e82 http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/...47?pt=Digital_Camera_Flashes&hash=item483c8b951b but have no idea how good they will be, particularly for macro. Hope you can help guys and gals!
