I've just aquired the Minolta X-700 SLR and it doesn't come with a flash unit.

I'm still pretty new to the SLR world and was wondering if all flash units out there are compatiable with the X-700. If not, would you guys recommend a cheap, light, portable and yet pretty sufficient flash unit for my SLR?

(Gonna use it for travelling)

hmm... I was wrong. This one seems to use the standard shoe. So you should be able to use an auto flash (eg ~$36 Achiever 260T, ~$130 Vivitar 285HV, ~$170 Metz 32Z-1).
