£rd party flash and off cam cord


30 Nov 2012 7:58PM
I have a Sony NEX7 and want dedicated flash to use on camera and via off camera cord.
Anyone recommend other than Sony's branded . Trying to minimise cost.
if a recommendation is given,do they work satisfactory? Friend had Nissin flash which failed he had lost receipt although only 9 months old and they wouldn't repair unless he paid.(£20.00 to inspect and £65.00 to repair) Can buy newone Di622 at £99.00 from Cameraworld. not sure what off camera cord would work though.

I cant reccommend a flash but there are many about nowadays very cheaply.

I have a Yongnuo 10m Canon off camera flash cord which I purchased from ebay and Im sure they do Sony ones.

For me it does....Cheap radio triggers only give a sync speed which can be lower than the cameras set sync speed so you have no control at all of shutter speed as you do with an off camera cordWink

A little expensive, there a probably similar cheaper on Ebay.

I always carry a cord, wireless triggers can be handy but at least with a cord you know its always going to work.

How's out the pixel king triggers I believe you have control with those, still pretty cheap. Not as cheap as a cord though.

A lot of the wireless triggers don`t give you ttl dedicated control, the leads do.
