I use the Yongnuo YN RF-603 C3. I bought a set of three a couple of years ago and they work perfectly. As a bonus they will also work as a wireless remote (up to 100m) for your Canon cameras.

I also have two YN-622 which act as master and slaves again brilliant, but will not act as wireless remote. Actually I need a third as I often use two flash guns off camera.

£23 on Amazon. Cheaper on Ebay

I have some Yongnuo CTR 301P triggers which work either from the wireless transmitter or can be activated after detecting another flash going off. Less than £20 on ebay. I also have an earlier version of the Yongnuo RF603, mine being an RF602 set. They work as a camera remote release for Canon or Pentax. There is also a Nikon version I believe. I paid about £25 for that.

There are a few options out there, well within your budget, so happy shopping. :)

Thanks for your help and the links, I have not actually bought my flash yet I have been looking
however with not knowing to much about them I don't want to buy the wrong one, I have been looking
at the yonguno 565 ex but not sure if it will work on both the 350d and the 1100d I have looked on the
web site and it just puts a ? next to the 350d and says there has been no feed back re- the 350d so they
do not no if or not it would work.  I have wrote an email to them and am waiting now for a reply then if it
will work I can then go ahead and buy the flash and the triggers together.

Thanks Geoff  Merry Christmas to all

I have two YN565EX's They work perfectly controlled from the cameras flash menu on my 7D. My 30D I presume is much like your 350D and 1100D which does not have wireless flash control, but they work OK flawlessly in E-TTL or TTL mode. However IMO you're better off working in manual. I think the 350D works OK in TTL
