    Hi All!

    I recently bought the Sony A7 and I am looking for a flash for the camera. I am a Nikon girl and have 2 Nikon speedlights and have no idea what flash I need to get for the Sony A7. I would be using the flash on camera as well as off camera in the studio. What equipment do you recommend? Should I get a radio flash?

    Thanks for any suggestions!

    I know this is dated as hell...but I had a Nikon SB-910, and I just went ahead and sold it. The reason is that I had read that the adapter that you would have to use comes loose on the Sony, and you might drop the flash. I went ahead and purchased the [h=1]Sony HVLF43M High Power Flash with Quick Shift Bounce (Black)[/h]




    flash, and it works like a charm.
