Speedlite for Canon Eos 80D

I have a Canon EOS 80D and would like to purchase a speedlite for it.  Can anyone tell me what models work with ths?  I am having no luck pinning down what will work.  Thanks for any help!

Any current Canon speedlite will work.  Read the specifications on your camera.  It uses Canon’s E-TTL communication protocol.  If you read the specifications on any of Canon’s speedlites, you will see that they also use the E-TTL protocol.

 

I recommend Canon’s 600EX II-RT.  It has the power to bounce light off of the average home ceiling.

Check out the Canon Speedlite 430EX III-RT at $250 bucks it is a deal.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, even less and less other stuff.

Thank you for your response. I couldn't swing the cost of the 600EX II-RT. I did purchase the 430EX III-RT this morning.
