A better camera? Probably not the solution. A better flash unit? Absolutely. You want to have the ability to use ETTL flash metering, along with manual control for more consistent situations. Sigma, Metz, Quantum, and Canon all have excellent products with this capability.

I am so TOTALLY in the dark about this stuff. Can you recommend one for me? What kind of features do I need to look for?

Thanks, Debbie

Canon 430EX is what I started with. Even though I have two 430's and a 580, I generally still use a 430 on a bracket when I am shooting candids.
