Questions about flashes for Sony a55
I use the f43am and appreciate the Sony wireless technology although it doesn't always work in either bright light or if your camera is too close to the subject (in which case your on camera flash which triggers the off camera will have some effect on your image). I haven't done any testing with what angle the flash can face away from the camera, but I haven't run into any problems even with it facing away or positioned well behind the camera.
As for the tilt swivel, I can't imagine using a flash without it - it's awesome.
