Re: Nex-6 inexpensive external flash
In reply to LIDave, Jan 24, 2013

I recommend Sony HVL-F42AM. I just received mine today (used) and I am very happy with how it performs on NEX-6. It is smaller than 43AM (from current line-up) and has similar specifications except some that in my opinion do not make a big difference in real life.

I paid for mine the equiv. of $130 so it was pretty inexpensive for a 42 guide number, rotating head, HSS enabled flash. I am sure you can get it for a similar amount of money because it's from the previous line-up and i guess it's not very looked for.

However, be aware that you will need the ADP-MAA adapter (~$30). But this you will need anyway with any current big external flash except the top of the line (60AM i believe).

Best,

Radu
