Flash Suggestions

Hello,

I need a flash so that i can take pictures inside of houses for Realtors. I need to spend about 300 dollars (or less!) and want a tilt swivel. Any suggestions and why you are suggesting said flash would be great!

The Sigma EF530 DG Super or EF530 DG ST would do the job for that kind of money.

You can get the Pentax AF-540FGZ for about $250 from Prodigital2000 off Ebay.

Hunt up an old AF280T. Should run you no more than about thirty bucks and will do everything you need it to do.

The Pentax AF360FGZ doesn't have swivel, but you can use it off-camera with wireless P-TTL, which is more versatile anyway you can have the light coming from anywhere, not just where you're standing. (Metz 48 AF-1 or Sigma EF-530 DG Super will do this too. Or one of the more expensive models.)

If you don't care much for P-TTL, then any reliable flash with a variety of manual settings that is dSLR safe (for trigger voltage) would do too.
