You may wanna look at the Metz range or Nikon (SB22s, SB26, etc). Personally I'm using the Metz 36-M1, full manual. However, I would strongly recommend the Metz 36-C2, which has auto-teleaperture mode. Works like a charm without the need for TTL. Will auto-cutoff when before overexposing.

;)

I think the Metz 36-C2 should sell not more than S$125.

There are mainly three types (some consider two only) of flash i.e. manual, dedicated and slave triggered. However, there are only 2 types of hotshoes, either centre-pin or TTL-based. Most Fuji cameras except for the S1/S2/S3 Pro (they can use Nikon TTL since they are based on the Nikon F80), uses the standard centre-pin hotshoes i.e. S7000, S602, etc. You are free to use any flashes that supports this, and the best configuration is to use the flash that offers Auto mode (tele-aperture ranges).

TTL modes are dedicated for certain brands only and will only work (signalling of data, i.e. ISO, Aperture, metering, etc.) within their own range of cameras i.e Nikon, Canon, Olympus, etc. However Metz has come out with a range of higher end flash units that allow you to change the hotshoe to fit certain types of camera without changing the flash unit. They call this the SCA adapter. Check out their website.
