Re: An HVL-F20AM will be useful

Well, if I go to page 116 of hte a99 manual - Wireless flash, the manual states to take the strobe, such as a HVL-F60M, that I have and set the strobe on wireless control - four channels are available and there is CTRL or CTRL+ (not sure the diference).

I go to the a99 and set it for wireless flash mode, but I do not see a way to select a channel or pair the camera witht he flash frequency?

The channels are for firing selective groups of flashes. The channel setting is located on the flash unit. Great if more photographers are using WL flash in the same room.

The channels do not trig the flash from the camera. As other said, you need a compatible flash on the camera.
