Flash? help please.

Hey guys I currently have an N80 and I'm looking for a decent external flash to purchase to use tomorrow. I'm probably going to end up with the SB600 A-F because thats the best Nikon i could find within budget. Are there any generic versions that are just as good or better? Also I have never used an external flash before, any tips or pointers? I normally only shoot in Manual mode so can i still do that or should i go auto?

SB600 = tasty.

I would stick with own branded flashes. Unless you dont mind manually dialling the power and have some triggers, you could go for some Sunpak flashes.

I love my SB-600 although I've never had experience with a sb800.
