What flash best suits my needs for a Sony A330 DSLR camera?

I am by no means a professional photographer, however I am learning and enjoy taking nice photos. I am looking for a flash that allows me to take night photos at close distance without catching the lens, causing a shadow. I also want to take slightly longer distance night photos. I don't want to spend a fortune. Any advice will help. Many Thanks.

Can the police do this?

Are the police allowed to set up speed cameras in unmarked cars? I am asking this because I would have thought not after the uproar that made them have to make all speed cameras visible as this would not be for prevention but rather a money making effort. I was driving yesterday and coming off a motorway and the exit spirals around so you cannot see what is around the corner then on the bend obscured was this black car on the hard shoulder of the slipway with it hazard lights on and a third yellow light flashing inside. The apparatus inside looked like a camera or at least I assume it was in the brief look I got. I can only assume this is what it was. The question is totally hypothetical however as speed camera or not I was not speeding. I'm not sure if it was the police or even a speed camera but I should rephrase my question anyway. Can the legally do this?

Yes. They did it, therefore they can do it.

    Hands down, a GREAT Investment!

    This flash is excellent for SO MANY REASONS! If you are just beginning in photography, you should check out this flash. If you are a pro and you need either a back-up, a slave, something to experiment with, and/or if you love to work in manual, you should check out this flash. Yes, it doesn't have any automatic functions, but for the price to feature ratio, you get more than enough to up your game with flash photography.I have been shooting as a pro for about 2 years now. Before that, when photography was just a hobby, my first flash was the . Even though it helped, it was not by much however, my knowledge of strobist photography was non-existent at the time.

    Amazed! EDIT: Not anymore :/

    First off, I am a professional photographer for the last 7 years. I've been working with Canon only equipment but in this economy the opportunity to get a flash for a fraction of the original Canon was too tempting to pass by....and I am amazed at how well this flash works right out of the box.So far I've used it in a studio setting as a backlight (slave, with a little octabox attached to it) and it worked like a charm. Full output is fantastic for bigger events. With the Yongnuo wireless transmitter this is amazing for fashion shoots on location, headshots etc. As a lightstand, I'm using my Manfrotto tripod, works like a charm as well.If you understand how to model your light and shoot in manual you get an amazing flash for a great value. I'm about to order 2 more for on location lighting.Also props to the shipper, product came well packaged 20 days earlier than expected!!

    Buy Four and a Nice Steak Dinner! (On Canon)

    Let me start this review off simply. BUY THIS. Is it as good as the more expensive alternative? It very, very, very nearly is. It's the right price, it has surprisingly good build quality, excellent recycle time (better than my Canon), and consistent results.This is my second Yongnuo unit (I have the 2 also) and unless I end up having more money than I care to count, I may never buy another Canon unit. Don't get me wrong, the Canon IS better, but $300 better? Absolutely not. My first Yongnuo was bought as a cheap second unit for a specific job that I didn't want to invest too much in. It has, since then, become my primary unit. I have two 430 EXII units that I use as backups now.My concern with most low price alternatives from China are usually quality related. This flash has taken several spills already (see my upcoming review of my new sandbags to avoid that) and hasn't skipped a beat. It's build quality is EXCELLENT. I can't say that part enough... 5/5 Jay Mittener - See all my reviews, June 20, 2013

    Comparison to YN560 (mk I), Canon 580EX II

    EDIT: A problem that I didn't experience at first - while the LCD screen is bright and easy to read in most situations (looking straight at it), I found out that it's not so easy to read from other angles. For example, if you put it on an umbrella swivel (for an umbrella, beauty dish, softbox, etc..) and have it angled it can be impossible to read. If tilted 90 degrees forward, it appears as if everything lights up on it (the LCD screen uses something similar to a digital alarm clock - so it looks like "1/188" which allows the "88" to light up certain parts to form different numbers. So it could be 1/1, 1/2.. 1/16, 1/32, 1/64, 1/128) Again, the problem is that at odd angles (like 90 degrees forward) it appears as "1/188" instead of what the actual power is. On the other hand, tilting it 90 degrees backwards it will look blank.. so the viewing angle isn't great and creates some readability issues. Another example is if it's sitting lower to the ground and you're looking at it from a... 5/5 MiRSD - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Significant variance in color

    I bought one unit to try it out, and it worked great. So I bought two more. They all work great, well built, reliable. If you configure it correctly per the manual it does not time out. Very happy with the units except last night I discovered an odd color when I was using two Yongnuos with my Elinchrom studio flash in a three flash setup. I lit a model with the key light being a Yongnuo through a softbox, the Elinchrom providing fill, and another snooted Yongnuo lighting the background.The Elinchrom fill provided nice, vibrant color in the model's blonde hair. The Yongnuo key light created an odd, muted cast in her hair that was very muddy and unattractive. One half of her face looked great and the other half looked terrible. This is the first time I noticed it so I decided to do a color comparison between my six flashes (Two Canons, three Yongnuo's and a studio unit).
