Alternative to problematic HVL-F60M Flash for Sony A7R

I've had the camera for about a week and started looking at what I might do for a flash. Saw a few good deals on the HVL-F60M but after reading users comments it looks like it has a serious limitation and overheats a lot.

So what alternatives are there. I own several Canon flashes (430EX II, 600EX-RT x 3) and a Chetah CL-180 but wanted some good but portable like the 430EX except maybe with a video light like the HVL-F60M had.

Any recommendations? Please let me know. I don't want anything that requires a mount adaptor
