Many flash units are available. Several of the better brands are adequate, but avoid the common kind that are fixed to the camera.

Portable Flash

You get better lighting if your flash is a few feet away from your camera and at a slightly different angle.

I started out with Metz and worked my way up to their model 64 CT 4, indeed I now have five. Why five? It takes that many to illuminate an entire Maya temple or palace.

Metz units can be fired simultaneously by their internal electronic control units. Each unit can power up to three; the overall system can handle up to seven flash heads simultaneously.

In the last years a comparable Metz system has come out that does the same in a cordless manner.

Metz equipment is built to last in the Germanic tradition. Many models can be obtained, from the common basic units all the way up to powerMetz can be obtained from any photo store.
