Re: Can you recommend a flash for my A55?

I used the Sony HVL-F43AM with my a55. It's certainly bright and powerful enough for everything I needed to do, such as bouncing off a wall or ceiling to light up a whole room.

In some ways it was annoying because it keeps turning itself back into Auto TTL mode every time the power goes into standby (delay of about 2 minutes), so you can't leave it permanently set in Manual mode. (Maybe that's a problem with all Sony flash units, and serious strobe photographers get something else.)
