Not at all, it just doesn't offer the extra height (avoids shadows from long lenses or lens shades closeup), bounce capability, or lens focal length compensation that this external flash does.
If life brings you lemons, you can make lemonade.

That flash is nice and compact but I think I'll stick to my 5600HS for now unless I can pick one of those up used. My 5600HS is a bit heavier but I can also use it off camera. Most of the indoor photography I do does not allow flash photography anyway.
