    Lightbulb Smaller flash ideas

    There is also the ring flash, which offers a smaller and different approach to your imaging.

    SONY offers a ring light, but it is NOT a flash, but a lens mounted lamp of limited illumination, Personally, it requires a longer exposure than i am comfortable with.

    The other ring-type unit is the twin flash.

    Other flash solutions would requite a hot shoe converter of some type, to provide a PC-sync port for the α100, α200, α300 & α350 DSLRs which SONY saw fit to not conveniently include. There are "third party" alternatives which are smaller in size and a carload cheaper to purchase and use.

    A third-party ring flash for under $100

    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.

    Hi Rich. I'd agree with whats been said. Upgrade to the A700. Talk to dr4gon maybe.
    As for the flash I think it likely that a small flash unit may well materialise from Sony as a trigger for the A900. There is speculation that Sony will offer wireless trigger instead but that seems unlikely to me.
