Default Flash Unit for DMC-LZ10

I'm looking for a flash unit (DMW-FL28) for the Panasonix DMC-FZ10. I called Panasonic directly and they wanted $229!! :shock: The same unit is selling in Tokyo for 16,000 yen (approx. $150) also directly from Panasonic. What the heck is up with the mark up?

Also, why aren't the other two flashes offered? There is one smaller and one larger flash than the DMW-FL28. You can see them here: http://panasonic.jp/dc/fz10/option.html as well as other accessories for the model.

I purchased the Phoenix D92-BZS TTL Digital Zoom Slave flash unit for my FZ10. The flash is quite inexpensive and works nicely with any digicam (I have used it on my FZ10 and my friends Nikon Coolpix 5700), whether the camera has an external hot-shoe or not. The unit is a slave with options for either one or two flash digital cameras. It is activated remotely by the lame on camera flash or can be used on the cameras hot-shoe. At $60 it is a great bargain. Admittedly, it is not made on a quality level with Nikon or Canon flash units but it doesn't carry the $300 price tag either.

I got mine online at Smile Photo Video out of New York City.

Service was prompt.
