Flash unit for Minolta Dimage 7Hi

    I am interested in purchasing a flash unit for my Minolta Dimage 7Hi.
    The unit recommended by Minolta is the 5200HS(D). I have researched
    the unit and like the specs....though the price is high.

    Researching online, I have come across reviews that state that any
    flash unit that can be used with the Maxiuum body can be used with the
    7Hi....but that "some" functionality will be lost. I'm curious to know
    what functions are lost.

    Also, I would like to get an off-body extender to use with the flash
    (preferably a hand-grip style). I haven't found anything online like
    this. Does anyone have any recommendations?

    Thank you!

    Metering. This is a serious disadvantage, no? ;-)
    You need a "D" compatible flash. That means 2500D, 3600D, or 5600D (not
    5200). Or a third party alternative, I don't know anything about them, but
    they need to support "D" too.
