Default external flash for Panasonic FZ100

I am looking for an external flash under 100 for a fz100. I want to use it to take pictures of groups of people, and wildlife. What flash guns might be compatible apart from the Panasonic ones?
Thanks
Sam

Would not the YN-560 be a manual flash mounted on a Panasonic FZ100? I don't see how it could have any TTL atributes.

Sam-

If you want full TTL functions you are going to have to use a dedicated Panasonic brand flash, or an Olympus brand flash, although the FL-20 model will not work on the FZ-100 in the TTL mode.

I was looking for the answer to this myself.

The FZ100 manual says the FL220, 360, and 500 are compatible.

So if I want TTL then it's got to be these or Olympus. Correct?

I haven't looked at the Olympus brands yet. Do you know if all of them work or just certain models.?

Thanks
