I have the F32X flash that I kept when I sold my F828 because it's compatable with my V3. The other day I bought a F717 (don't have it yet) I've seen pics of it , but it looks likethe hot shoe on the F717 has only one contact where the V3 , F828 and F32X has 5 (4 small1 larger)contacts. According to the Sony's site the F717 is comatable with the F32X. I wonder if it's going to function like it does on the V3 & F828 ? Anyone know for sure ? Cybershot maybe....you have 2 or 3 Sony cameras ....LOL. :?

2 or 3 Sony cameras? I guess u didn't see my current collection:?Yes, that flash is compatible with the F717, but in order to get the full features out of it you need to hook up the accessory cable to it and plug it into the acc jack on the F717...

I just have to ask one thing - why spend so much money on Digicams? They all do the same thing, take pretty much the same pics (with some exceptions of course) - if you just like buying cameras, buy one for me

The 828 has an "intelligent" hot shue (the additional four small contacts are needed for the flash t communicate with the camera). The 717 has a regular hot shue, so an external cable (supplied with the F32X flash) must be usedto allowit to work properly.
