Probably the Nikon SB-600.

Does kinds depend on what your main intention is though, But the SB-600 should cover most jobs.

If you need more power & options, The SB-900, Although it is a tad expensive.

If the Nikon option is out of budget, Have a look at the " Metz " range, You would be wise to make sure that, Whatever model your looking at, It should have a " Bounce & Swivel " head, For maximum versatility.

Or something like this.

I had the SB600, and I would buy it again; it's excellent, easy to use, and recharges in an instant.
