Hi all,

I am looking for a rather smallish flash for my sony cameras that would support hss. Apart from the nissin i40 are there other alternatives at this price point or not?



Hi Alex

What are you hoping to shoot with HSS. If it's in bright sunlight you may need higher power. Can you let us know, as it's hard to comment about your original post?


open up shadows at bright light when I need narrow depth of field. I understand that a small flash can not overpower sun but still should be able to open up shadows.

One more question can manual systems do also HSS.

My ideal system would be something rather smallish to go with my compact prime and be my travel-to-go system


Hi Alex

Manual flashes can definitely do HSS

I'm about to purchase from Adorama, the Flashpoint Explor 600 (Manual) and zoom Li-on R2 TTL.

Best wishes, Rob
