This question already has an answer here:
I want to start and try using a flash for my photos. Since I never used more than build-in flashes of compact cameras, I am completely new to the topic of choosing the right flash for me.
After some reading I'm still not quite sure of what I should or can even use. The different camera manufacturers are using slightly different hot shoes/methods of communication between flash and camera, is that right?
I own a Samsung NX300m. Does that mean I can only use flashes explicitly built/modified for NX cameras? Since of course nobody wants to make flashes for cameras that do not get produced anymore, in that case there wouldn't be a big range of flashes for me.
Does anything of this change if I use a remote trigger?
