Which Flash Should I Buy?

This question is tricky because you have to choose a flash that’s compatible with your camera model. However, if you have a Canon or Nikon camera, buy the Yongnuo YN-468 II (about $70) or the Yongnuo YN-568 EX (about $95). Name-brand flashes are far more expensive and have lots of features you probably won’t ever use, and if you do need them in the future, these flashes make excellent off-camera flashes. I provide recommendations for other flashes and information about flash features that you might need in Chapter 5, “Flash Features”.
