So I am going to buy either the A6000 or A6300 and for some reason I'm just not understanding the flash situation. I want A flash I can put on the camera and bounce or use it straight on. I am also trying to get into some off camera flash, I have stands and umbrellas. Im looking at the HVL f20l but I need to know if I can take it off the camera and set it up with a stand and umbrella? is it powerful enough to do that? Some of the reviews say that it is not much more powerful than the on camera flash?
My canon 430exII could be set up off camera and I could use the on camera flash to trigger the speedilte. I would like to do something similar with the sony. do i have to buy a radio trigger or can i set it up the same way as my canon?
Does anyone have experience with these flashes? Which flash would be best to use off camera? and if the hvlf20 isn't the right choice for off camera is it worth still buying for family candids etc while using on camera or would a flash card do the trick for bouncing/diffusing?
Thanks for any help.
