    Ah, but it does. I have two separate flash units which have slave
    mechanisms built in:

    Canon HF-DC1 is a primitive small unit that is difficult to control as
    it is not automatic regarding light output. It is tiny, and comes with a
    separate bracket that attaches to the tripod socket. It uses one
    CR-123-A battery, which is not cheap and may not be easy to find when on
    the road.

    The Metz 28CS-2 is a marvelous unit, giving much more light than the
    above Canon unit, while barely larger and still very small. It is
    automatic regarding light output, has an "easy" mode to set it up to
    match any camera, and comes with slip-on flat plastic attachments for
    wide and telephoto enhancement.Its bracket is built-in, so cannot be
    lost or forgotten.This unit uses two standard alkaline "AA" batteries.

    They both work by flashing upon "seeing" the camera's built in flash go
    off, and of course there is no time delay involved.

    I highly recommend the Metz unit.

    My wife is quite pleased with her new Nikon 6300 - though it has no
    viewfinder. about $180.

    With only 2M pixel resolution, it doesn't have to be as sharp as one for
    a DSLR. And with a budget of $50k or more (up to several times more!),
    there's a lot you can do.

  6. Define "sharp".
    No, really, what do you mean? Accutance? Something else?

    True, but noone put a price limit on the claim about 20x
