I got an Avantek TTL Flash a couple months ago for review and just had the chance to shoot and edit a review. You know, the holidays and the nice cold a relative brought me. The Avantek is a solid flash. It’s one of the cheapest ETTL flashes I’ve seen and even has an external power port. It is lacking Master capability and High Speed Sync, but at $99 (on sale for $89 right now) you can’t beat it. The only real issue I had was the bounce card wasn’t as tight as it should be so it wouldn’t stay all the way extended. Not a big deal if you use a better light modifyer like Gary Fong or Rogue Flashbender.
