I miss the popup flash sometimes, this one is small and very portable.

Yes, it acts as a wireless controller using the "old" (universal) wireless flash protocol, or it can act as a handy fill-flash.

My only complaint about it is the lag time when in wireless flash mode is pretty long - maybe 1/3rd of a second - an eternity when you're shooting 2-year-olds.  The same F20AM flash atop the A900 never had such a delay.  (BTW, this delay also happens when the F60 flash is mounted atop the A99 and used as a wireless flash controller.  I have discovered no way around it.)
