yn-468 or yn-560 for 500d + 60mm 2.8

Teddy L. , Jan 21, 2011; 01:46 a.m.

hello! i'm a fairly new beginner here, with a t1i bundled up with a 60mm macro
flashes seem pretty useful to control light, but the canon flashes are out of my price range ): so which one will compliment my 60mm 2.8 (and 18-55) more? yn-560 or yn-468?
thanks!

It seems to me that you never use flashes before and with the kit lens in the equation you have general use in mind, so I strongly suggest the YN-468 for its E-TTL ability. You could take pictures right away without thinking too much and learn to expand its uses (off shoe, etc.) at your spare time, if you are so inclined.
