EDIT: I now understand that the SunBlitz thing isn't great, but I've done some more research and narrowed my choices down to the sunpak 444D and vivitar 285. I also don't know if it'd be worth it to pay extra for the HV model of the 285. http://www.adorama.com/FACSB829.html I know it's not a name brand, but light is light, and it seems to offer manual control and come with optical slaves. If I'm correct in assuming that this comes with 2 flash heads, that's $39 a unit. that wouldn't be much to fret over for most folks, but I'm really pinching pennies at the moment. if this is not worth the money, I can save up for something else. Thanks.
