I'd like to purchase a speedlight to use with my N80. I'm really a beginner photographer, and I've never used a speedlight before, so hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. For this purchase, the less money I spend the better. There a lot of features on different speedlights, and I really don't know what I need. Right now I'm annoyed with the harsh shadows behind subjects when using the on camera flash. I think I can eliminate this by bouncing the flash of the wall, right? I'm sure once I have a speedlight I'll find many uses for it!

I found some used SB-28s on ebay for a good price. Is this one I should consider? Or do I need a SB-600 or SB-800? Is there any reason not to buy a used one...do new ones only last a year or two before dying?? I do not plan on switching to digital, so it doesn't need to be compatible with the DSLRs.

Thanks so much for whatever advice you can offer!
