Hi all,

I am new here as I am in Nikon world. I come from a Canon system and now I am finally getting the Nikon I ever dreamed about.
I got a FM3A with a 50mm f/1.4 nikkor, and as I am an adventure
photographer, serious amateur level, I actually need a speedlight.

Would someone please recommend me a budget one with TTL, for use in outdoors activities? I am a cave explorer, and I am asking for a budget speedlight because the excess umidity of the caves always dammage the eletronoc devices such as flashes.

The most recommended for the FM3 are SB27 and SB 50, but those
seem to be very fragile to take under a cave, ans very expensive too.

I have had two Canon flashes completely damaged due to this, and I think it will be a big investment if I have to buy a new speedlighr each time I go caving!

Thank you,

Paulo, from Brazil.
