question

When using a6000 with this flash The AF Assist Light (on the flash) works? Or Just the AF beam on camera body?
Asked by: Gustavo M.
My assumption is that the AF Assist Light on the flash works. I am not a technocrat, but why have it on there if it does not work. Just seems logical that it does.

I have the A99ii , a7s, and a6000. I also have the HVL-F43AM flash. Will I be able to use the HVL-F43M flash with all 3 cameras? Will I be able to use F43am as a slave off the F43m and can I use the F43m as a slave off of the F43am.

question

I was wondering if this would be a good choice for the Sony A9 camera or would there be a different Sony Flash that would be a better choice to use with the Sony A9 camera? Thank You!

question

Will this work on a77 mark 2?
Asked by: Trisha
Love this flash on A77ii, highly recommended. The red beam light works well in dim light for fast focus and with auto iso, nearly every exposure spot on, in direct or bounce mode indoors. Extend with white slotted card in bounce if high ceilings though.

question

Could Sony F43M External Flash be connected to Sony RX100M5 ?
Asked by: Adam W.
Looking at other answers in this question forum the flash can be triggered remotely from a pop up flash which RX100M5 has. The Sony rep also mentions some flashes compatiable. By the way love the flash on my A77ii.
