    What flash should I get for my a100

    My birthday is next month and I need to make a wish list for the kids. I need a flash. What is a good flash I can get? I was looking at the Sigma EF 530 DG Super, Promaster 7500EDF or the Sony HVL-F36AM .
    Thanks Frank

    Well, I don't want to be too much of a kill joy, but in the long run, I think you would be happier using the SONY HVL-F56AM.

    It has a swivel/tilt-head which is nice for bounce flash. The HVL-F36AM can only tilt ... limiting your photography. It's the little things that count.

    Look, I did not create the optical laws of the Universe ... I simply learned to deal with them.
    Remember: It is usually the GLASS, not the camera (except for moving to Full Frame), that gives you the most improvement in your photography.
