    Just want to know if Nikon has stopped making the mirrorless SLR cameras – can’t seem to find any anywhere – reason for Nikon is my DSLR is Nikon and would like to be able to use external flash on a mirrorless.

    PSP – not a clue as I am allergic to those 😉 – no there is nothing wrong with Mirrorless. But I dont want to look in case I want one.

    Call the Outdoorphoto shop and check with them – they will be very up to date with what is current

    If you cant find a Nikon, Sony has a good choice.

    I like Sony – but does a Nikon flash work on them in auto mode? – I doubt it – will visit the shop today to see what my options are – I love my Canon SX710 but the quality is not the same as APs-C in the DSLR’s . – looking for WiFi and articulating LCD – will probably go for Canon.

    You can use your Nikon flash off camera with the Sony’s (with triggers), but in manual. I think the same will apply to the Canon.
    The Sony has an articulating screen, wifi and a FF sensor, depending on which model you look at.
    Sony agents are the same as your Nikon agents so I am sure if you contact them, they will be able to give you the advise you are looking for.

    Nikon 1 cameras are not manufactured anymore, and while they were, the last three years none were imported by the South African Nikon agents.

    The Nikon 1 mirrorless cameras (V1, V2) has a special flash foot and the normal Nikon flashes does not fit.

    The Nikon SB-800, SB-900 and SB-910 have an AUTO mode – with that set, you have auto exposure with any camera that can trigger the flash, but not iTTL exposure.

    Thanks for that info Leo – I settled on an entry level Canon m100 for those ‘quick pics’ like it a lot and the picture quality is very good for the price.

    GOOD!

    By setting the flash on your M100 to manual and reducing the power, you can trigger a Nikon flash that has been set to SU4 mode! Now you have a powerful off camera flash – manual exposure or A-mode!

    I’ve got the original M and use it fairly regularly, even though I have a few technically superior dSLRs.
