    Hi,
    I recently picked up a Fujica STX-1N and was wondering what kind of
    flash should I get for it. This is my first SLR so I haven't any
    experience with hotshoe flash. Also how much would I expect to pay for
    a flash?

  2. You can use any flash with a hotshoe sync connection. While the Fuji
    "recommended" flashes are the Fujica Auto Strobe AZ and the Fujica Auto
    Strobe 300X, this camera doesn't take advantage of their dedicated
    features. Nor does the camera have the trigger-voltage vulnerability of
    some later units, so any flash would be safe.

    Older non-dedicated flashes are readily available on eBay and elsewhere
    for just a few dollars - no need to spend much. The classic Vivitar 283
    comes to mind, but it may be a little heavy for that camera. If you
    want new, B&H has the Vivitar 2000 series for the $20-$35 dollar range;
    but I recently got a nice 2800 at a flea market for $2.

    Strange I posted this to Google Groups and here it is in Photography Forums, yet I only joined their forums today. Does PF trawl Google Groups for content?
