Default External Flash on the HS-10

Through experimentation today (07/24) I found that the Nikon SB-20 and the very cost effective Young-Nuo 460 (mine cost $36 on E-Bay) work very well as external flashes on the HS-10.

The SB-20 is too powerful and best used for bounce flashes. However, the Y-N 460 was very easy to use in the Manual Mode. It was Gary's wedding experience that got me working on this. Sometimes, you just need an external flash.

Here is a link to a photo taken with the Y-N 460:

Another good one is the Vivitar 2800D. They are dirt cheap on eBay and do a fine job.
