TTL? What' s this? Never had one on my old Yashika FX3 (SRL)!
If you don' t have TTL you do like it was done for decades: manually!
With a little bit of experience it works perfectly!

Mr. Englemann-

Because we have to deal with the full spectrum of photographic knowledge amon our readers, we make a sincere and full blown attempt to keep our explanations as easily understood as possible.

Yes, having been a professional for over 53 years, I certainly am aware that flash can be set up manually. However, the photos do tend to be better when the camera and the external flash can communicate with each other. That protocol is called TTL, or through the lens.

I know what is ttl. It was just a little irony, I wanted to say that it is possible having taken pictures for many years without ever having used it. Excuse me if I didn' express in a way it made it clear. English is not may mother language.
Apart from that I am still of the idea that using a non TTL flash is really not particularly difficult, expreccially now, in the digital age, where it is possible to contol immediately the result. In general I use a fixed ISO setting and adjust the aperture depending on the distance. If it is not enough, in case of to large distances, I raise the ISO.
