    What are you putting it on top of? I tried a 60 on my NEX-6 and on my a7 at the local store, and it was too unbalanced. I ended up with a 43 for using on camera.

    For off camera flash, I use cheap non-Sony flashes.

    The HVL-F43M is a good flash. I use it on occasions in both TTL and in manual on my A7R and NEX 6 (and with a Sony adaptor - on an NEX 7). That being said, and coming from the Nikon world - I hate Sony flash heads and how they "don't" rotate around the horizontal-axis...

    That looks very cool mounted on there! I'm going to be getting it soon for my A7. :)
    What lens is attached to that?

    I've got the HVL-F43M for my A7 and it is excellent. I think the 60 would be too big and cumbersome though.
    Cheers,

    May I ask a side question about the HLV-F60M?
    I'm fairly new to the Sony system having moved over from Canon. With a Canon external hot shoe flash on ETTL it would always fire a preflash followed by the real flash. With a Sony HVL-F60M on my NEX-6 the same thing happens. However on my A6000 it appears to fire 3-4 preflashes prior to the measure flash and the delay is pretty bad. I noticed the same thing on my now sold RX10. Why are there numerous preflashes that cause such a bad delay?
