Sony Flash - What are my options here?
4 months ago

So my kid dropped my camera which had the HVL-F42AM flash attached. Result is now a broken base for the flash. Do you know what is my best option here? Is there a part that can be ordered or is it easier to send the flash for repair to Sony? If the latter, how much would it cost? I bought a Bower flash in the interim for 40 bucks. However my Sony Flash was way better. Thanks for your inputs!
