  1. Hi Jay!
    I was wondering if you could do something on flashes. It seems really hard to find info on sony flashes. Maybe a good $100-$150 third party TTL flash, or even some manual ones.
    Thanks!

      Hey Brett,

      That is a good call on the flash units and thanks for the suggestion!! I will see what I can do ;)

      I also have a Flash and lighting guide over here as well if you were not aware.

      Have a good nite, and thanks again!

      Jay
