    Anyone have any suggestions for an all-purpose external flash for my Sony F717? I'm not quite sure what to look for....as far as specs are concerned. Don't want to spend too much money either. Any suggestions would be great! -Jared

    If I recall currently Sony does not use a dedicated flash. So you should be able to get a nice one without spending a lot of money. The basic options are tilt, rotate, zoom, and adjustable power & timing. You need to decide on the options you think you will need.

    I have a flash with all those option, but the only one I use regular is tile.

    Both Adorama and B&H should have a few choose between 25-80 USD that should work.
