    Anyone have a "cheap" monolight/remote flash sync setup that they would recommend?

    I have a Konica Minolta and use a Vivitar A200 remote flash. It has an ISO/10' number of 93 and can be triggered by any point and shoot or prosumer camera with built in flash. I use it mostly as a bounce flash for portrait type lighting. The zoom head (wide to tele) can be bounced and rotated for aiming. It has four power options (full, 1/4, 1/8, 1/16). Large rooms work well with full power and smaller rooms use 1/4 power. Construction is fairly inexpensive, so be careful where you put it. An alternitive is the Quanteray OMS-D1 but it is not as powerful and has no power options.

    If you actually want monolights, Alien Bees are the best bang-per-buck out there, you can trigger them with a sync chord, another flash, or buy wireless triggers.
