Sony HVL-F43AM flash review by Moht Sulhan

"The Sony HVL-F43AM comes with (A) the built-in bounce card and the (B) wide angle diffuser that keeps itself snuggly on the top part of the flash head. The bounce card is proportionally smaller compared to the one found on the Sony HVL-F58AM. The bounce card can be quickly deployed by sliding out the card and its bounce area adjustable by pushing the card back in as required.  The wide angle diffuser allows the flash to support wide angle  field of view of a 16mm lens." . . . read more

Sony Hvl-f58 flash review by Templar Tan

"My conclusion is short. The F58 is value for money, and yet it has some room for improvement. The rotary head is cool ! But if you want a left bounce or right bounce under landscape orientation, the twisted head may cause some un-balance to my camera. The build in white card reflector is normal in my opinion. This option had been included in almost all non-Sony flashes. Sony should include this add-on into the 42 already. So far, I haven't test out 58's power consumption, but I had predict this would be a batteries eater."
