Today, we are going to be taking a look at what we feel are some decent Canon 750d budget external flashes. Now, just because these are budget friendly flash units, it does not mean that they are low quality. For their prices, both of these flash units offer a surprising amount of functionality with some solid performance.
Although we see a number of people asking for assistance on what flashes they should be picking up, most of the people that we see specifically request flashes that are under the $100 price point so that is what we have decided to stick to. Additionally, we have chosen two flash units that have proven very popular with the community while also being able to hold a positive reputation from their launch through to the time of writing.
On top of this, both of the flash units that we have chosen to feature have a proven track record of being held in high regard by the Canon 750d owning community.

The Altura Photo AP-C1001 Flash
The first Canon 750d external flash unit that we would recommend to our readers is definitely the Altura Photo AP-C1001 Flash (Click here to check for product prices and availability). The cheap price tag, high build quality, great functionality, ease of use, and top-level performance for its price point made this flash unit an instant hit with the photography communities. This lead to a massive initial customer base for the flash and it has steadily grown in popularity since. There are now a massive amount of third-party reviews (click here to read some of them) online that have been left by independent photographers and we would highly recommend that you read some of them as many are only short and can be read quickly.
The image to the left shows both the control and user interface system of the Altura Photo AP-C1001 as you can see, it is nice and basic allowing anyone to quickly pick it up no matter what their level of experience is and it quickly become second nature to them. The simplicity of the user interface also means that you can quickly and easily navigate to any key settings that you may need to change or tweak mid-session without needing to waste any time.
Once you have set your Altura Photo AP-C1001 up as you need all you have to do is mount it on your 750d’s hot shoe mount and go about your flash photography as required. The flash takes four AA batteries and as usual, we would recommend that you pick up a decent set of rechargeable AA’s (Click here to check for product prices and availability) so you can hot swap them out as required to keep the flash unit powered when doing any extended jobs to keep you snapping away.
If you are wanting to get yourself a nice little flash unit for your 750D that is under $100 but can easily outperform the rival flash units at this price point then you should definatley look into getting the Altura Photo AP-C1001 .
The video below offers an additional third-party, independent review for the Altura Photo AP-C1001 Flash to offer our readers an independent opinion of the product. Please note that the version reviewed in the video is the Nikon variant but the links on this page will link you to the Canon variant that will work with your 750d.
The Neewer TT560 Flash Speedlite
Another decent flash unit that you can use for your Canon 750D is the Neewer TT560 Flash Speedlite (Click here to check for product prices and availability). This is more of an entry-level flash unit with limited performance and functionality but for its price tag it is a total steal and has proven very popular with a large number of photographers who own a wide range of camera units. Again, over the years this has lead to many reviews (click here to read some of them) being posted online that you can read if you wish.
The image to the right shows the control system for the flash. As you can see, it is very basic but has all the core functions that you require to get the flash unit to do exactly what you need. If you are inexperienced with technology this can be the perfect flash to start with due to how simple it is to use.
On top of this, the build quality of the flash unit is actually surprisingly decent considering the price that it retails for. It can make a nice little robust entry level or spare flash unit that can be picked up without breaking the bank and will serve both you and your 750D well.
Ideally, you would be looking to pick the Altura Photo AP-C1001 Flash covered first in the article up but if you are on a very tight budget then this will do fine.
