Which cheap flash gun?

Hi All

I would like to get myself a flash for my K-r. I do however want Trailing Curtain Sync. Can any of you guys recommend a cheap flash gun.

I do have a NEEWER TT560 Flash Speedlite but it doesn't appear to support TCS. I'm in the UK btw, if model numbers are different.

Thanks in advance

The Sigma Super series does this. They call it SECOND CURTAIN SYNCHRONIZATION. My Sigma EF-500 DG Super has these features and it has been replaced by more powerful Sigma models.

It's hard to make a recommendation without knowing what you consider cheap to be.

Thanks for that Tim, I'll have a look.
Matt, cheap means as inexpensive as possible. I'm thinking 2 figures rather than 3. :-)
