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.(ú20.00 to inspect and ú65.00 to repair) Can buy newone Di622 at ú99.00 from Cameraworld. not sure what off camera cord would work though.

I use a Nissin with cheap radio triggerson my canons they have been great. Does it have to be a cord?
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.
Quote: Does it have to be a cord?
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 cord
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.
