NEX-6: Need external flash suggestions

Few days ago, I went to an indoor party, which is a bit low light.

My friend brought his Nikon D90, F2.8 zoom lens, and an external flash.

I brought my NEX-6 and 16-50 lens, using built in flash.

When I looked his photos, woah very nice. The external flash was really good.

No wash out objects, beautifully exposured, ISO 800, 1/60 at F2.8.

My results were not as good as his. Few washed out due to the internal flash.

I tried to do the bounce flash trick by pulling it back a bit, but that did not help much.

Really not as good as his D90 with external flash.

So .... I need suggestions ...

What external flash which is good for my NEX-6 ?

I need one which is easy to use, easy to setup, and preferably small.

One that will give more natural look, not washed out.

It does not have to be the best.

At least it is much better than the built in one.

So I can bring it to any indoor party when needed, and make good photos.


Nikon D90 Sony Alpha NEX-6
