Hi and Welcome!

I must say that I am not a pro photographer....so I recommend you to look here http://www.pentaximaging.com/products/cameras/flash/index.jsp and try to find which one suits your needs/desired....because for me....flash is flash...and I mostly worked only with those that are prebuilt into a digital camera....

Really sorry....but hopefully someone else here will be able to tell you more about this...Mp3Mogulllllllllllll...where are you.....Mary Ann needs your help.... (hopefully he'll reply soon)

HAve a nice day and good luck!
