    I am planning on taking the necessary product photos for a colour mail order
    brochure and website (mainly food, and not very complicated sets).

    I plan on using my EOS 10D, and am contemplating buying a small "off the
    peg" studio flash setup, with brollies etc.

    The other possibility with the same financial outlay would be a set of 3
    Canon 550 EX speedlights. Can anyone advise as to whether the latter would
    be a seriously compromised studio option?

    Hi there. I just did a brochure and bought a Jessops portaflash + stand +
    brolly and used the 1 head with reflectors to fill in shadows. Also used a
    10D and got some excellent results. The flash isn't really powerful enough
    to do portraits etc but for small stuff, excellent, and the right price.
    Sadly my company then think the photography is "free", couldn't even blag
    the cost of the lights out of them!

    Andrew.

    I worked for a well known photo retailer, who asked us to send photos of
    the window display's to HO. one manager sent an invoice for his work stating
    there was nothing in his contract re photography and the co only paid for
    his salesmanship. He did get paid the once.
