    Horrified by the price of additional flash units (2500, 3600, 5600) from
    Minolta I'm looking for third party flash units.

    Anyone know of any available in the UK?

    Hi mate, I've had a Z1 for 18 months myself, and likewise the price of
    the Minolta flash guns is a bit too high for me. Certainly as it's a
    consumer level camera. So far I've had no luck in locating a TP flash
    for these.

    I can remember that the 'T' flash guns for my Olympus OM40 SLR were in
    excess of £100 when I got the camera in 1987, but I found a Vivitar unit
    for £30, and I still use that now.

    There certainly doesn't seem to be as much TP stuff around for digitals
    as there was for the old SLRs.

    However, taking inflation into account, the current stuff is actually
    reasonably priced from that point of view.

    Hmm - depends on what you call reasonable.

    Are there really only 200 people on usenet?

    I relation to what they cost 20 years ago. I'm not saying they are
    actually acceptable now.
    Seems that way doesn't it? ;-)
