Flash for Nikon D5100

I have been looking on Amazon for a suitable flash for my D5100 but am a bit bamboozled by the choice available.

I don't have a great deal of "cash to splash" but wanted something more than the built-in flash on the camera, which is very harsh. Something preferably that is articulated to enable me to bounce the light.

Any suggestions?

Thanks
Carol

The Nikon SB-700 speedlight is ideal for the D5100, Whats more it compatible with all the functions of Nikon's CLS lighting, In fact it gives the D5100 full CLS ability.

( CLS in case you have not heard of it is " Creative Lighting System ".

For sure there are some cheaper options, But most of the cheaper items are not fully compatible with the CLS system, Wots more the SB-700 is a doddle to use, Almost no need to dive into a menu system as everything you need is on the rear panel.
