Anyone use a flash gun on the various Sony RX? Any recommendations?
The best value currently is Godox. The basic choice is between the TT350S and TT685S (or their lithium-batteried equivalents). The differences being size, power and recycling time. If you want to use off-camera flash you can then add almost any other Godox TTL flash and the system just works.

If you want to stick with Sony then my favourite is the HVL-F43M. Note it must be the 'M' version, not the 'AM' as that has the earlier Autolok shoe and will need an adapter to work.

There's also the Nissin i40 & i60. The i40 is worth consideration but the i60 is too expensive compared with the TT685.

Thanks for that! Will review these options. Cheers!

Are you sure this is a crow, Mike? The curve of its beak, the tuft at the base and the shaggier throat feathers suggest it's a raven. Can you remember if it said 'caw, caw, caw' or 'kronk, kronk'?
Hmm - no I'm not at all sure! I can't recall the noise it was making but I suspect you are right and it's actually a raven. Thanks :)

Well a week without my RX10 3... and I bought another to replace it. It’s a cracker and decided I’m going to keep a hold of this. The quality is amazing and it’s so flexible. Few below from Monkey Village visit today.

After another tandem shoot yesterday with the Canon m50 and 100-400, and the RX10 - dare I say it, the RX10 seems initially sharper, and better resolution than the M50...! Pictures to follow...

Could you get a sharper shot of a robin with a 600mm?! That was wide open, even zoomed in to 200 percent it is incredibly detailed!
