Greetings!\n\nI am interested in purchasing a flash unit for my Minolta Dimage 7Hi.\nThe unit recommended by Minolta is the 5200HS(D). I have researched\nthe unit and like the specs....though the price is high.\n\nResearching online, I have come across reviews that state that any\nflash unit that can be used with the Maxiuum body can be used with the\n7Hi....but that "some" functionality will be lost. I'm curious to know\nwhat functions are lost.\n\nAlso, I would like to get an off-body extender to use with the flash\n(preferably a hand-grip style). I haven't found anything online like\nthis. Does anyone have any recommendations?\n\nThank you!
