Promaster make some flashes that take an interchangeable shoe, one of which is for the Sony. I think Ritz Camera also has similar units.

But, you do not have to use a dedicated TTL flash, you could use any Thyristor style flash (single central contact on the hot foot). eg: Sunpak 383

Hope that helps.
