    The XG-M only offers a minimal amount of flash automation. With a compatible dedicated flash, the camera is set automatically to the 1/60 second X-sync speed, and a ready light in the viewfinder blinks when the flash is charged. You have to set the correct aperture for flash photography according to subject distance; a guide was available on the back of Minolta's flashes but just about any flash unit will do and many, like the Vivitar 285HV and LumoPro LP120 Manual Flash also have guides on them.
