RX100 and external flash?


I'm thinking about using the RX100 as my only camera. But I like to do studio photography using external flashes. I have a pair of old studio flashes (from the film days) with built in light sensors, which I think will fire using the built in flash.

Do anyone have any experience regarding this?

I'm also interested in using an "normal" flash unit like the Metz 50 AF because it would be more convenient in some cases. Is that possible some how?

Have anyone tried this with a compact camera without hot shoe or pc sync?

I know most of my issues would be solved if I get the Nex 7, but I really, really like the small size which will mean that I will actually use the camera a lot more, simply by bringing it with me. Picture quality wise I’m pretty sure that this camera delivers more than sufficient for me.

Thank you.
