Affordable External Flash
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 The Panasonic Lumix DMC-FZ300 is an affordable camera with support for an external flash available from $493.09.

Some cameras let you connect a separately purchased external flash. This gives you more range and yields more natural looking lighting in flash images. The natural look is accomplished by bouncing the flash off walls, ceilings, or other nearby surfaces. External flash connections are a standard feature amongst SLRs and Mirrorless Interchangeable Lens Format cameras, but fairly uncommon for digicams. Pro photographers will often have a collection of flashes the same way they would with lenses. An external flash setup can permit some fancy lighting techniques.

This is my question I'm wanting to know if you can use the pop up flash for the D200 to set off an sb700 external Flash I'm looking to do off Camera Flash work and I know it can be done with a D90 but I want to know if it can be done with this model.
